Pressestimmen

The book contains many new results. ... [and] is printed on glossy pages with a large number of beautiful full-colour illustrations, which can be enjoyed even by non-mathematicians.
-- EMS Newsletter, June 2009


One of the most base concepts of art [is] symmetry. The Symmetries of Things is a guide to this most basic concept showing that even the most basic of things can be beautiful-and addresses why the simplest of patterns mesmerizes humankind and the psychological and mathematical importance of symmetry in ones every day life. The Symmetries of Things is an intriguing book from first page to last, highly recommended to the many collections that should welcome it.
-- The Midwest Book Review, June 2008


Conway, Burgiel, and Goodman-Strauss have written a wonderful book which can be appreciated on many levels. ... [M]athematicians and math-enthusiasts at a wide variety of levels will be able to learn some new mathematics. Even better, the exposition is lively and engaging, and the authors find interesting ways of telling you the things you already know in addition to the things you don't.
-- Darren Glass, MAA Reviews, July 2008


This rich study of symmetrical things . . . prepares the mind for abstract group theory. It gets somewhere, it justifies the time invested with striking results, and it develops . . . phenomena that demand abstraction to yield their fuller meaning. . . . the fullest available exposition with many new results.
-- D. V. Feldman, CHOICE Magazine, January 2009


This book is a plaything, an inexhaustible exercise in brain expansion for the reader, a work of art and a bold statement of what the culture of math can be like, all rolled into one. Like any masterpiece, The Symmetries of Things functions on a number of levels simultaneously. . . . It is imperative to get this book into the hands of as many young mathematicians as possible. And then to get it into everyone else s hands.
-- Jaron Lanier, American Scientist, January 2009


You accompany the authors as they learn about the structures they so beautifully illustrate on over 400 hundred glossy and full-colour pages. Tacitly, you are given an education in the ways of thought and skills of way-finding in mathematics. . . . The style of writing is relaxed and playful . . . we see the fusing of the best aspects of textbooks conciseness, flow, reader-independence with the best bit of popular writing accessibility, fun, beauty.
-- Phil Wilson, Plus Magazine, February 2009

This book gives a refreshing and comprehensive account of the subject of symmetry a subject that has fascinated humankind for centuries. . . . Overall, the book is a treasure trove, full of delights both old and new. Much of it should be accessible for anyone with an undergraduate-level background in mathematics, and is likely to stimulate further interest.
-- Marston Conder, Mathematical Reviews, March 2009


Inspired by the geometric intuition of Bill Thurston and empowered by his own analytical skills, John Conway, together with his coauthors, has developed a comprehensive mathematical theory of symmetry that allows the description and classification of symmetries in numerous geometric environments. This richly and compellingly illustrated book addresses the phenomenological, analytical, and mathematical aspects of symmetry on three levels that build on one another and will speak to interested lay people, artists, working mathematicians, and researchers.

Synopsis

Start with a single shape. Repeat it in some way - translation, reflection over a line, rotation around a point - and you have created symmetry. Symmetry is a fundamental phenomenon in art, science, and nature that has been captured, described, and analyzed using mathematical concepts for a long time. Inspired by the geometric intuition of Bill Thurston and empowered by his own analytical skills, John Conway, with his coauthors, has developed a comprehensive mathematical theory of symmetry that allows the description and classification of symmetries in numerous geometric environments. This richly and compellingly illustrated book addresses the phenomenological, analytical, and mathematical aspects of symmetry on three levels that build on one another and will speak to interested lay people, artists, working mathematicians, and researchers.
