Geometry at Work: Papers in Applied Geometryby Catherine A. Gorini, Catherine Gorini
Pub. Date: 01/28/2000
Publisher: Mathematical Association of America
Beginning with art and architecture and culminating with science and mathematics itself, this book discusses geometric ideas and their many applications throughout history. These range from ancient to modern, concrete to abstract, and familiar to cutting edge. Each chapter is written by a leading expert or pioneer in their own field, and the book should be a valuable resource for students and teachers of geometry alike.
