Kimberly Elam fA1/4hrt den Leser auf eine geometrische Reise und gibt Einsicht in den Designprozess, indem sie visuelle Beziehungen untersucht, die sowohl auf mathematischen Prinzipien als auch auf grundlegenden Eigenschaften des Lebens basieren. Elams ErklArungen machen die mathematischen Beziehungen, die sich hinter diesen Designs verbergen, offensichtlich, und ihre EinfA1/4hrung in die Technik der visuellen Analyse macht dieses Buch zu einer unerlAsslichen Hilfe fA1/4r jeden, der grafisch arbeitet. Die Autorin behandelt dabei nicht nur die klassischen Proportionierungssysteme wie den Goldenen Schnitt und wurzelbasierte Rechtecke, sondern auch weniger bekannte Systeme wie z.B. die Fibonaccifolge.

Upon publication, the first edition of the CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics received overwhelming accolades for its unparalleled scope, readability, and utility. It soon took its place among the top selling books in the history of Chapman & Hall/CRC, and its popularity continues unabated. Yet also unabated has been the dedication of author Eric Weisstein to collecting, cataloging, and referencing mathematical facts, formulas, and definitions. He has now updated most of the original entries and expanded the Encyclopedia to include 1000 additional pages of illustrated entries. The accessibility of the Encyclopedia along with its broad coverage and economical price make it attractive to the widest possible range of readers and certainly a must for libraries, from the secondary to the professional and research levels. For mathematical definitions, formulas, figures, tabulations, and references, this is simply the most impressive compendium available.

The Golden Ratio examines the presence of this divine number in art and architecture throughout history, as well as its ubiquity among plants, animals, and even the cosmos. This gorgeous book—with layflat dimensions that closely approximate the golden ratio—features clear, enlightening, and entertaining commentary alongside stunning full-color illustrations by Venezuelan artist and architect Rafael Araujo. From the pyramids of Giza, to quasicrystals, to the proportions of the human face, the golden ratio has an infinite capacity to generate shapes with exquisite properties. This book invites you to take a new look at this timeless topic, with a compilation of research and information worthy of a text book, accompanied by over 200 beautiful color illustrations that transform this into the ultimate coffee table book. Author Gary Meisner shares the results of his twenty-year investigation and collaboration with thousands of people across the globe in dozens of professions and walks of life. The evidence will close the gaps of understanding related to many claims of the golden ratio’s appearances and applications, and present new findings to take our knowledge further yet. Whoever you are, and whatever you may know about this topic, you’ll find something new, interesting, and informative in this book, and may find yourself challenged to see, apply, and share this unique number of mathematics and science in new ways.

Aus den Rezensionen zur englischen Auflage: "Die Leser von Pesics faszinierendem kleinen Buch werden zu dem unausweichlichen Urteil kommen: Niels [Henrik] Abel hat sich der Genialität im fünften Grade schuldig gemacht." William Dunham, Muhlenberg College und Autor von "Journey through Genius: The Great Theorems of Mathematics "Peter Pesic schreibt über Abels Werk mit Begeisterung und Einfühlungsvermögen, und ruft Erinnerungen an die großartigen Momente in der Entwicklung der Algebra wach." Barry Mazur, Gerhard Gade University Professor, Harvard University "Ein einzigartiges Buch. Peter Pesics Chronik des langen Weges der Mathematiker zum Verständnis, wann eine Gleichung gelöst werden kann - und wann nicht - ist amüsant, einleuchtend und leserfreundlich. Der Autor bemüht sich sehr, auch weniger bekannte Namen wie Viète und Ruffini gebührend zu würdigen und verlangt von seinen Lesern nicht mehr als Basiswissen in der Algebra - wovon ein Großteil angenehmerweise getrennt vom Haupttext plaziert wurde." Tony Rothman, Department of Physics, Bryn Mawr College "Peter Pesics Geschichte über die Entstehung der Mathematik ist genauso spannend wie ein Roman." Economist
