Item description for Do the Math by Barry Mazur Emily Galvin...
Emily Galvin, as much a mathematician as poet, explores the connection between poetry and science by using the Fibonacci sequence and other mathematical formulas to create undeniably compelling and imaginative poems and short lyrical plays. But no mere math exercises, these poems brim with emotional insight and extraordinary wit. A significant community of readers, writers, and bloggers are treading the crossroads where math and poetry intersect and creating something entirely new and viscerally affecting. Emily Galvin is one of the heralds of this new movement with this dazzling collection in which science does not limit art, but enriches it.
Includes a foreword by Barry Mazur, leading Harvard mathematician.
