Only 9 left in stock (more on the way). Since most math courses in high school do not discuss these shapes, this book was perfect for learning about the topic.

This book collects 12 articles by Coxeter, already published in various mathematics technical journal but would be quite tedious to collect for one's pleasure.

Only 5 left in stock (more on the way). This book collects 12 articles by Coxeter, already published in various mathematics technical journal but would be quite tedious to collect for one's pleasure. Each explains fascinating connections between exceptional discrete groups, polyhedra, graphs, sphere packings, projective spaces. All carry the particular favour of HSM Coxeter mathematics with his love of polyhedra and of their geometry. Starting points are often elementary but conclusions and connections are worthwile aven for today mathematics.

Shapes, Space, and Symmetry (Dover Books on Mathematics). It is easy to read and the ideas are beautifully illustrated through photos of models created by the author, a real feat given the 3D subject. A guide for building the models is included; as the author states, the best way to learn about these shapes is to build them. The book carefully and succinctly guides the non-mathematician through fascinating and illuminating transformations of regular polyhedra using their symmetries and duality. For the artist or craftsman who wants to make something inspired by polyhedra, this book is perfect.

Shapes, Space, and Symmetry. Writing for the layman as well as the student or professional in mathematics, Alan Holden explains the structure of the figures and demonstrates how they can be used to explain mathematics visually rather than by symbol systems, an effort hailed by Scientific American magazine as "a victory of clear, connected thinking over the theorematic method.

Science.Since the ancient Greeks, the visualization of space has been a challenge that has intrigued men of learning. Through centuries of thoughtful looking, a number of three-dimensional figures or polyhedral, as the Greeks called them, have been discovered, admired, and wondered at for their mathematical elegance and beauty. And they have been put to use in remarkably diverse ways by engineers and builders, chemists and crystallographers, architects and sculptors.This book describes very clearly and simply, and illustrates with beautiful photographs of models, a great number of three-dimensional figures, all but a few consisting of plane faces bounded by straight lines. It examines the nine regular solids — the five commonly called Platonic, described by Theaetetus in the fourth century B.C., and the four called Kepler-Poinsot, two each of which were discovered by Kepler and Poinsot many centuries later. And it examines many variations obtained by truncation, stellation, dualization, and compounding.Writing for the layman as well as the student or professional in mathematics, Alan Holden explains the structure of the figures and demonstrates how they can be used to explain mathematics visually rather than by symbol systems, an effort hailed byScientific Americanmagazine as "a victory of clear, connected thinking over the theorematic method."
