About The Book
Creative mathematicians seldom write for outsiders, but when they do, they usually do it well. Jerry King is no exception. His informal, nontechnical book, as its title implies, is organized around what Bertrand Russell called the ‘supreme beauty’ of mathematics — a beauty ‘capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show.’
In this clear, concise, and superbly written volume, mathematics professor and poet Jerry P. King reveals the beauty that is at the heart of mathematics — and he makes that beauty accessible to all readers. Darting wittily from Euclid to Yeats, from Poincare to Rembrandt, from axioms to symphonies, THE ART OF MATHEMATICS explores the difference between real, rational, and complex numbers; analyzes the intellectual underpinnings of pure and applied mathematics; and reveals the fundamental connection between aesthetics and mathematics. King also sheds light on how mathematicians pursue their research and how our educational system perpetuates the damaging divisions between the two cultures.
