Item description for Discovering Patterns in Mathematics and Poetry. (Internationale Forschungen Zur Allgemeinen Und Vergleichenden Literaturwissenschaft) by Marcia Birken, Anne Christine Coon, Karl H. Muller, Elinor Rooks, Michael Kasenbacher, Honey Naylor, Becky Freeman & B. Teissier...

You are invited to join a fascinating journey of discovery, as Marcia Birken and Anne C. Coon explore the intersecting patterns of mathematics and poetry - bringing the two fields together in a new way. Setting the tone with humor and illustrating each chapter with countless examples, Birken and Coon begin with patterns we can see, hear, and feel and then move to more complex patterns. Number systems and nursery rhymes lead to the Golden Mean and sestinas. Simple patterns of shape introduce tessellations and concrete poetry. Fractal geometry makes fractal poetry possible. Ultimately, patterns for the mind lead to questions: How do mathematicians and poets conceive of proof, paradox, and infinity? What role does analogy play in mathematical discovery and poetic expression? The book will be of special interest to readers who enjoy looking for connections across traditional disciplinary boundaries. Discovering Patterns in Mathematics and Poetry features centuries of creative work by mathematicians, poets, and artists, including Fibonacci, Albrecht Drer, M. C. Escher, David Hilbert, Benoit Mandelbrot, William Shakespeare, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Langston Hughes, E.E. Cummings, and many contemporary experimental poets. Original illustrations include digital photographs, mathematical and poetic models, and fractal imagery. Marcia Birken and Anne C. Coon have collaborated for over twenty years, exploring the connections between mathematics and literature in their research, writing, and team-teaching. The co-authors of numerous scholarly articles and book chapters, they are faculty members at Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, New York. Birken is Professor Emeritus in the School of Mathematical Sciences, College of Science, and Coon is Sr. Associate Dean and Professor of English in the College of Liberal Arts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Discovering Patterns in Mathematics and Poetry. (Internationale Forschungen Zur Allgemeinen Und Vergleichenden Literaturwissenschaft)?

Math and Poetry  May 18, 2008
Who would ever think that there was a solid commonality between math and poetry, between the left brain and the right brain? Two professors from the Rochester Institute of Technology thought so and spent 20 years searching out and teaching the commonality. The result is a book that is not only readable and understandable but also highly interesting with many visual examples.
After reading this book, one has a greater appreciation for the beauty that can be found in both math and poetry. The book provides a real opportunity for discovery.
