#### Beauty of Mathematics (Chinese Edition)

### Beauty of Mathematics (Chinese Edition)

A few years ago, a series of articles titled 'the beauty of mathematics' were originally published on Google blackboard, it got over a million hits, was widely spread by enthusiastic readers, and it has been highly praised. Readers comment that after reading 'beauty of mathematics', they finally understood mathematical knowledge learned at the University such as Markov chain, cosine functions and etc. They finally understood nature of mathematical language and information processing, and a saying: 'Math is a queen of sciences' makes more sense now. The second edition adds content in areas of big data and machine learning.

#### The Beauty of Numbers in Nature: Mathematical Patterns and Principles from the Natural World (MIT Press)

### The Beauty of Numbers in Nature: Mathematical Patterns and Principles from the Natural World (MIT Press)

From a zebra's stripes to a spider's web: an engaging examination of patterns in nature and the mathematics that underlie them.From a zebra's stripes to a spider's web, from sand dunes to snowflakes, nature is full of patterns underlaid by mathematical principles. In The Beauty of Numbers in Nature, Ian Stewart shows how life forms from the principles of mathematics. Each chapter in The Beauty of Numbers in Nature explores a different kind of patterning system and its mathematical underpinnings. In doing do, the book also uncovers some universal patterns -- both in nature and made by humans -- from the basic geometry of ancient Greece to the complexities of fractals.Stewart draws on a wide range of sources to examine the mathematics of patterns: the Pythagoreans' obsession with numbers as the philosophical basis of the universe; a great mathematician who wondered about how a violin makes music; a clerk in a patent office who realized that space and time can get mixed together; a maverick mathematician who questioned why nature spurns such regular geometric shapes as spheres and cylinders in favor of jagged lightning bolts, asymmetrically branching trees, and the uneven terrain of mountainsides.The book begins with a simple and often-asked question about the shape and individual u...

#### The Divine Proportion: A Study in Mathematical Beauty (Dover Books on Mathematics)

### The Divine Proportion: A Study in Mathematical Beauty (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Using simple mathematical formulas, most as basic as Pythagoras's theorem and requiring only a very limited knowledge of mathematics, Professor Huntley explores the fascinating relationship between geometry and aesthetics. Poetry, patterns like Pascal's triangle, philosophy, psychology, music, and dozens of simple mathematical figures are enlisted to show that the "divine proportion" or "golden ratio" is a feature of geometry and analysis which awakes answering echoes in the human psyche. When we judge a work of art aesthetically satisfying, according to his formulation, we are making it conform to a pattern whose outline is laid down in simple geometrical figures; and it is the analysis of these figures which forms the core of Professor Huntley's book.For the philosopher, scientist, poet, art historian, music listener, artist, as well as the general reader who wants to understand more about the fascinating properties of numbers, this is a beautifully written, exciting account of the search for a naturally manifested aesthetic that has occupied man since he first asked the question "why?""This is a delightful book to read. . . . It wanders here and there through some of the most attractive byways of simple mathematics, returning always to the oddities and pleasures of the golden ...

#### A Most Elegant Equation: Euler’s Formula and the Beauty of Mathematics

### A Most Elegant Equation: Euler’s Formula and the Beauty of Mathematics

An award-winning science writer introduces us to mathematics using the extraordinary equation that unites five of mathematics' most important numbersBertrand Russell wrote that mathematics can exalt "as surely as poetry." This is especially true of one equation: ei(pi) + 1 = 0, the brainchild of Leonhard Euler, the Mozart of mathematics. More than two centuries after Euler's death, it is still regarded as a conceptual diamond of unsurpassed beauty. Called Euler's identity or God's equation, it includes just five numbers but represents an astonishing revelation of hidden connections. It ties together everything from basic arithmetic to compound interest, the circumference of a circle, trigonometry, calculus, and even infinity. In David Stipp's hands, Euler's identity formula becomes a contemplative stroll through the glories of mathematics. The result is an ode to this magical field.

#### The Seduction of Curves: The Lines of Beauty That Connect Mathematics, Art, and the Nude

### The Seduction of Curves: The Lines of Beauty That Connect Mathematics, Art, and the Nude

A lavishly illustrated book that explores the language of curves that spans the human body, science, engineering, and artCurves are seductive. These smooth, organic lines and surfaces―like those of the human body―appeal to us in an instinctive, visceral way that straight lines or the perfect shapes of classical geometry never could. In this large-format book, lavishly illustrated in color throughout, Allan McRobie takes the reader on an alluring exploration of the beautiful curves that shape our world―from our bodies to Salvador Dalí’s paintings and the space-time fabric of the universe itself.The book focuses on seven curves―the fold, cusp, swallowtail, and butterfly, plus the hyperbolic, elliptical, and parabolic “umbilics”―and describes the surprising origins of their taxonomy in the catastrophe theory of mathematician René Thom. In an accessible discussion illustrated with many photographs of the human nude, McRobie introduces these curves and then describes their role in nature, science, engineering, architecture, art, and other areas. The reader learns how these curves play out in everything from the stability of oil rigs and the study of distant galaxies to rainbows, the patterns of light on pool floors, and even the shape of human genitals. The book also...

#### Mathematics, Poetry and Beauty

### Mathematics, Poetry and Beauty

What does mathematics have to do with poetry? Seemingly, nothing. Mathematics deals with abstractions while poetry with emotions. And yet, the two share something essential: Beauty. “Euclid alone has looked on beauty bare,” says the title of a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay. “Mathematics, Poetry and Beauty” tries to solve the secret of the similarity between the two domains. It tries to explain how a mathematical argument and a poem can move us in the same way. Mathematical and poetic techniques are compared, with the aim of showing how they evoke the same sense of beauty. The reader may find that, as Bertrand Russell said, “Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty - a beauty hold and austere, like that of sculpture . . . sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show.”
