Über dieses Buch

This is the only book dedicated to the Geometry of Polycentric Ovals. It includes problem solving constructions and mathematical formulas. For anyone interested in drawing or recognizing an oval, this book gives all the necessary construction and calculation tools. More than 30 basic construction problems are solved, with references to Geogebra animation videos, plus the solution to the Frame Problem and solutions to the Stadium Problem.

A chapter (co-written with Margherita Caputo) is dedicated to totally new hypotheses on the project of Borromini’s oval dome of the church of San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane in Rome. Another one presents the case study of the Colosseum as an example of ovals with eight centres.

The book is unique and new in its kind: original contributions add up to about 60% of the whole book, the rest being taken from published literature (and mostly from other work by the same author).

The primary audience is: architects, graphic designers, industrial designers, architecture historians, civil engineers; moreover, the systematic way in which the book is organised could make it a companion to a textbook on descriptive geometry or on CAD.

Über den Autor

MA in Mathematics and PhD in Operations Research, Angelo A. Mazzotti has been a high school teacher for more than 20 years. In 2011 he went back to research studying Polycentric Curves and Ovals in particular, and started working as a freelance mathematician. Angelo is also a game inventor and a jazz singer.

Stimmen zum Buch

“Everything is clearly explained and the many illustrations produced with geogebra are crystal clear. It might however be interesting to have a look at the associated website www.mazzottiangelo.eu/en/pcc.asp where you find links to YouTube videos showing animated geogebra constructions. … For the mathematician, it is invaluable because it brings together so much information that was either not known or never writen down or if it was, then at least it was scattered in diverse publications” (Adhemar Bultheel, European Mathematical Society, euro-math-soc.eu, March, 2017)
