A Mathematical Tapestry: Demonstrating the Beautiful Unity of Mathematics

Buy

This easy-to-read book demonstrates how a simple geometric idea reveals fascinating connections and results in number theory, the mathematics of polyhedra, combinatorial geometry, and group theory. Using a systematic paper-folding procedure it is possible to construct a regular polygon with any number of sides. This remarkable algorithm has led to interesting proofs of certain results in number theory, has been used to answer combinatorial questions involving partitions of space, and has enabled the authors to obtain the formula for the volume of a regular tetrahedron in around three steps, using nothing more complicated than basic arithmetic and the most elementary plane geometry. All of these ideas, and more, reveal the beauty of mathematics and the interconnectedness of its various branches. Detailed instructions, including clear illustrations, enable the reader to gain hands-on experience constructing these models and to discover for themselves the patterns and relationships they unearth.

Reasoning About Program Transformations
Reasoning About Program Transformations
The motivation of this text lies in what we believe is the inadequacy of current frameworks to reason about the flow of data in imperative programs. This inadequacy clearly shows up when dealing with the individual side effects of loop iterations. Indeed, we face a paradoxical situation where, on the one hand, a typical program spends most of its...
