Mathematische Inspirationen in Kunst und Literatur

Edited by: Andrea Albrecht, Gesa von Essen,  and Werner Frick
This anthology examines the relationship between mathematics and the fine arts from medieval to contemporary times, and uses important historical paradigms to investigate the impact of mathematically structuring knowledge, and quantification, formalization and abstraction processes on creativity in music, visual arts and poetry. The focus is on two main issues: thematic reflections of mathematics in art and literature, and the mathematical structuring principles of formal aesthetic design processes.
