<b>Peter Markowich</b> is a mathematician who likes to take pictures. At first his two interests seemed completely separate to him, but then he realised that behind every picture there is a mathematical story to tell. <i>Plus</i> went to see him to find out more, and ended up with a pictorial introduction to partial differential equations. </div>

<p><i>Beautiful photography is not what you usually find on a mathematician's website, but this is just what Plus recently came across while idly browsing the Web. Intrigued, we went to see the website's owner, and ended up with an introduction to some high-powered mathematics through the means of pictures.</i></p>
