Item description for Mathematics and Culture I by Michele Emmer, Emanuela Moreale & Michele Emmer...

Mathematics has been very topical over the last few years. Theatre, cinema and books have all talked about mathematicians and mathematics. This book stresses the strong links between mathematics and culture, as mathematics links theatre, literature, architecture, art, cinema, medicine but also dance, cartoon and music. The articles introduced here are meant to be interesting and amusing starting points to research the strong connection between scientific and literary culture.

This collection gathers contributions from cinema and theatre directors, musicians, architects, historians, physicians, experts in computer graphics and writers. In doing so, it highlights the cultural and formative character of mathematics, its educational value. But also its imaginative aspect: it is mathematics that is the creative force behind the screenplay of films such as "A Beautiful Mind", theatre plays like "Proof", musicals like "Fermat's Last Tango", successful books such as Simon Singh's "Fermat's Last Theorem" or Magnus Enzensberger's "The Number Devil".

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!
