About this book

Mathematical themes have been explored in many recent films, plays and books. This volume, whose aim is the popularization of mathematics, contains a series of accounts which show in these cultural contexts that mathematics is a vibrant and intriguing subject for the non-specialist. In the same spirit, other contributions cover mathematics in art, architecture, cryptography, and the medical and physical sciences.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The series collects together the proceedings of an annual conference on Mathematics and Culture held in Italy. … and they are well written. … There are … some very interesting pieces on some themes, and these will be of interest and use to those who wish to read about those particular themes. For this purpose, the books should be available at mathematical public libraries." (Gizem Karaali, MathDL, May, 2007)
