Mathematics and the Aesthetic: New Approaches to an Ancient Affinity (CMS Books in Mathematics) (Hardcover)
by Nathalie Sinclair (Editor), David Pimm (Editor), William Higginson (Editor)
The essays in this book explore the ancient affinity between the mathematical and the aesthetic, focusing on the fundamental connections between these two modes of reasoning and communicating. From historical, philosophical and psychological perspectives, with particular attention to certain mathematical areas such as geometry and analysis, the authors examine the ways in which the aesthetic is ever present in mathematical thinking and contributes to the growth and value of mathematical knowledge.
MATHEMATICAL AESTHETIC PRINCIPLES/NONINTEGRABLE SYSTEMS
by M Muraskin (Univ. North Dakota)
Mathematical aesthetics is not discussed as a separate discipline in other books than this, even though it is reasonable to suppose that the foundations of physics lie in mathematical aesthetics. This book presents a list of mathematical principles that can be classified as "aesthetic" and shows that these principles can be cast into a nonlinear set of equations. Then, with this minimal input, the book shows that one can obtain lattice solutions, soliton systems, closed strings, instantons and chaotic-looking systems as well as multi-wave-packet solutions as output. These solutions have the common feature of being nonintegrable, i.e. the results of integration depend on the integration path. The topic of nonintegrable systems has not been given much attention in other books. Hence we discuss techniques for dealing with such systems.
