Geometry is a dynamic branch of mathematics that also serves as a creative tool for engineers, artists, and architects. Squaring the Circle: Geometry in Art and Architecture includes all the topics necessary for a solid foundation in geometry and explores the timeless influence of geometry on art and architecture. The text offers wide-ranging exercise sets and related projects that allow students to practice and master the mathematics presented. Each chapter introduces mathematical concepts geometrically and illustrates their nontraditional applications in art and architecture throughout the centuries. Appropriate for both basic mathematics courses and cross-discipline courses in mathematics and art, Squaring the Circle requires no previous mathematics.

Paul A. Calter is a Visiting Scholar at Dartmouth College andProfessor Emeritus of Mathematics at Vermont Technical College. Heis a book review editor of the Nexus Network Journal and hasinterests in both the fields of mathematics and art. He receivedhis B.S. from Cooper Union and his M.S. from Columbia University,both in engineering, and his Masters of Fine Arts Degree fromNorwich University. Calter has taught mathematics for overtwenty-five years and is the author of ten mathematics textbooksand a mystery novel. He has been an active painter and sculptorsince 1968, has had many solo shows and participated in dozens ofgroup art shows, and has permanent outdoor sculptures at a numberof locations. Calter developed a course called “Geometry inArt & Architecture,” which he has taught at DartmouthCollege and Vermont Technical College, and he has taught atDartmouth College and Vermont Technical College, and he has givenworkshops and lectures on the subject. Calter's own art isconcerned with astronomical and geometric themes; he searches for alink between the organic and geometric basis of beauty, what hasbeen called the philosopher's stone of aesthetics.
