9780691023748: Symmetry


Symmetry is one of the ideas by which man through the ages has tried to comprehend and create order, beauty, and perfection. Starting from the view that symmetry = harmony of proportions, this book gradually develops first the geometric concept of symmetry in its several forms as bilateral, translatory, rotational, ornamental, and crystallographic symmetry, and finally rises to the general abstract mathematical idea underlying all these special forms. This first paperback version of Hermann Weyl's widely-read essay includes the beautiful illustrations of the cloth cover edition.

Book Description Princeton University Press, United States, 1983. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. 210 x 138 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Symmetry is a classic study of symmetry in mathematics, the sciences, nature, and art from one of the twentieth century s greatest mathematicians.
