Symmetry in Chaos : A Search for Pattern in Mathematics, Art and Nature

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A study of symmetry emerging from chaos with many examples. The book has seven chapters, and four very useful appendices. The first two chapters introduce the subjects of chaotic dynamics and planar symmetries, the third is an exploration of symmetry in art and nature. The fourth chapter introduces the logistic map and helps the reader begin to understand how it is possible that a chaotic process can give rise to a symmetric image. The last three chapters are each devoted to one way of actually exploiting this possibility to create images.

Good condition.
