Contents:
Foreword -- Introduction: Towards an Interdisciplinary Aesthetics of Mathematical Art -- I Concepts, Theories, and Philosophies – Bridging Arts and Mathematics -- II Understanding Mathematical Principles of Composition -- III Interpreting Geometry -- IV Experimenting and Implementing – Practising Ars Mathematica.
In: Springer eBooksSummary: This anthology fosters an interdisciplinary dialogue between the mathematical and artistic approaches in the field where mathematical and artistic thinking and practice merge. The articles included highlight the most significant current ideas and phenomena, providing a multifaceted and extensive snapshot of the field and indicating how interdisciplinary approaches are applied in the research of various cultural and artistic phenomena. The discussions are related, for example, to the fields of aesthetics, anthropology, art history, art theory, artistic practice, cultural studies, ethno-mathematics, geometry, mathematics, new physics, philosophy, physics, study of visual illusions, and symmetry studies. Further, the book introduces a new concept: the interdisciplinary aesthetics of mathematical art, which the editors use to explain the manifold nature of the aesthetic principles intertwined in these discussions.
