Item description for Mathematics and Culture V by Michele Emmer...

This volume of the "Mathematics and Culture" series is dedicated to Italian artist Armando Pizzicato. The work of Pollock is also discussed, thanks to the collaboration of the Venice Guggenheim Collection. Mathematics creates beauty in architecture, from topology to the projects of Gehry and Piano to the muqarnas of Islam. The fourth dimension is made visible in these pages.

But mathematics can save lives as well. Mathematical models can fight against cancer and AIDS, prevent their spread and intervene in their cure.

Mathematics can also be used to protect the environment. In the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, the discussion of the use of mathematical models in meteorology and the prediction of storms is particularly timely. This volume wouldn't be complete without Venice and its glass, the fantastic collection of murrine of Giovanni Sarpellon.

There is even a bit of magic, thanks to Bustric. And finally, an homage to a great mathematician: H.S.M. "Donald" Coxeter.

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!
