➟ Fearful Symmetry Author Ian Stewart – Writerscompany.co.uk

A very nice book explaining the mathematical concept of symmetry and its application to patterns formations in physics, biology, astronomy etc I really love that the authors begin the discussion with Curie s principle a question somewhat fundamental to all sciences, also of important philosophical connotations whether symmetri Part of my job includes teaching quantum mechanics to other people, so when I find a math book that not only offers up insightful takes on mathematical concepts I m not already nauseatingly familiar with but d Breaking symmetry to uncover one theory that rules them allBreaking Symmetry is certainly a magic term in this book With the use of innumerable real life examples and the use of dozens of pictures Stewart and Golubitsky try to illustrate the basic concept of the Theory That Covers Everything Being confronted with the dissection of physical phenomenon into degrees of symmetry, gives the reader enough reason to believe that the big theory might ultimately be uncovered by using the mathematic Breaking symmetry to uncover one theory that rules them allBreaking Symmetry is certainly a magic term in this book With the use of innumerable real life examples and the use of dozens of pictures Stewart and Golubitsky try to illustrate the basic concept of the Theory That Covers Everything Being confronted with the dissection of physical phenomenon into degrees of symmetry, gives the reader enough reason to believe that the big theory might ultimately be uncovered by using the mathematical tool of Breaking Symmetry But this book also points out that scientists are still far away from This is a wonderful book about the things that BREAK symmetry Lots and lots of illustrations that truly bring the topic to life The very first photograph is of a milk drop falling into a saucer of milk The circular wave centered around the point where the drop hit the surface rises as a crown The crown has 24 spikes and droplets so there is 24 fold symmetry The reason there is ALWAYS a 24 fold symmetry seems to be a mystery.The book covers so many different subject areas geometry, astrono This is a wonderful book about the things that BREAK symmetry Lots and lots of illustrations that truly bring the topic to life The very first photograph is of a milk drop falling Another of Ian Stewart s wonderful books.This one at least, my edition is apparently available only from UK, in a Penguin edition, although my copy ordered throughU.S came quickly and inexpensively.This one is another fascinating read.Highly recommended Nice book, easily accessible even to people with no mathematical background, and with very interesting insights and very good explanations and examples of what is symmetry and symmetry breaking I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book The only small defe Expectedinteresting examples from a person like Golubitsky From The Shapes Of Clouds To Dewdrops On A Spider S Web, This Accessible Book Employs The Mathematical Concepts Of Symmetry To Portray Fascinating Facets Of The Physical And Biological World More Than 120 Figures Illustrate The Interaction Of Symmetry With Dynamics And The Mathematical Unity Of Nature S Patterns.
