Item description for Mathematics, Art, Technology and Cinema by Michele Emmer...
This book is about mathematics. But also about art, technology and images. And above all, about cinema, which in the past years, together with theater, has discovered mathematics and mathematicians. It was conceived as a contribution to the WorldMathematical Year 2000. The authors argue that the discussion about the differences between the so called two cultures of science and humanismis a thing of the past. They hold that both cultures are truly linked through ideas and creativity, not only through technology. In doing so, they succeed in reaching out to non-mathematicians, and those who are not particularly fond of mathematics. Aninsightful book for mathematicians, film lovers, those who feel passionateabout images, and those with a questioning mind.
