Contents:
1. The useful and the beautiful -- 2. The "objet trouv�e" in mathematics -- 3. The Mondrian experiments -- 4. An anecdotal report on chaos -- 5. A case submitted to court -- 6. Calculation of the "charts for prediction and chance" -- 7. The significance of discrete maps -- 8. Maps with scientific applications -- 9. Maps of generic significance -- 10. Are the diagrams fractals? -- 11. What can we learn from the -diagrams?
Summary: This innovative book brings together two disciplines - science and art - and enables readers to produce their own computer-generated displays. Forty-four colour plates and 200 black and white pictures showcase the diagrams that can easily be reproduced using the accompanying CD-ROM. It is possible to create diagrams that indicate predictability or unpredictability of physical, chemical, ecological, mathematical or economic systems, using colours and shades of grey. In addition, diagrams can be drawn purely for their aesthetic value. Directed both at scientists and laymen, technicians and artists, this combination of book and CD-ROM is the first of its kind.
