About this book

This anthology fosters an interdisciplinary dialogue between the mathematical and artistic approaches in the field where mathematical and artistic thinking and practice merge. The articles included highlight the most significant current ideas and phenomena, providing a multifaceted and extensive snapshot of the field and indicating how interdisciplinary approaches are applied in the research of various cultural and artistic phenomena. The discussions are related, for example, to the fields of aesthetics, anthropology, art history, art theory, artistic practice, cultural studies, ethno-mathematics, geometry, mathematics, new physics, philosophy, physics, study of visual illusions, and symmetry studies. Further, the book introduces a new concept: the interdisciplinary aesthetics of mathematical art, which the editors use to explain the manifold nature of the aesthetic principles intertwined in these discussions.

Reviews

Aesthetics of Interdisciplinarity: Art and Mathematics is a useful collection of essays similar to those that appeared in the proceedings of Bridges conferences. … This book should be useful for students and researchers with an interest in the connections between art and mathematics. It could provide the basis for independent studies with such students. Additionally, the book could serve as a catalyst for dialogue between mathematicians, philosophers, and artists. (Joel Haack, MAA Reviews, April, 2018)
