About this book

This work contains the proceedings of the "Mathematics and Culture" conference held in Venice in March 2002. The conference aims to act as a bridge across the various aspects of human knowledge.

While keeping mathematics as its core, it is aimed at anyone endowed with cultural curiosity and interests, whether within or (even more so) outside mathematics.

This volume therefore covers music, cinema, art, theatre and literature, with topics ranging from Tibet to comics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a collection of papers that highlight the relation between mathematics and culture in the broadest sense. … it is an eye-opener to many who might experience mathematics as an invention to terrorise children at school. … It is an excellent tool to raise public awareness of mathematics. It can be easily used by teachers or lecturers as a Trojan horse to conquer the fortress of the less mathematically inclined.” (A. Bultheel, The European Mathematical Society, October, 2012)
