As puzzled passers-by looked on, he raised a small painting to his face, then held a mirror in front of the painting. Furthermore, we show that geometric landscapes can serve as an accountable descriptor for porous materials to predict their performance for gas adsorption applications.

A machine learning model trained using this geometric similarity could reach a remarkable accuracy in predicting the materials' performance for methane storage applications. Geometrical Landscapes: The Voyages of Discovery and the Transformation of Mathematical Practice, by Amir R.
