Untangling Complex Systems Pier Luigi Gentili 2018-09-03 Complex Systems are natural systems that science is unable to describe exhaustively. Examples of Complex Systems are both unicellular and multicellular living beings; human brains; human immune systems; ecosystems; human societies; the global economy; the climate and geology of our planet. This book is an account of a marvelous interdisciplinary journey the author made to understand properties of the Complex Systems. He has undertaken his trip, equipped with the fundamental principles of physical chemistry, in particular, the Second Law of Thermodynamics that describes the spontaneous evolution of our universe, and the tools of Non-linear dynamics. By dealing with many disciplines, in particular, chemistry, biology, physics, economy, and philosophy, the author demonstrates that Complex Systems are intertwined networks, working in out-of-equilibrium conditions, which exhibit emergent properties, such as self-organization phenomena and chaotic behaviors in time and space.

3D Origami Art Jun Mitani 2017-12-19 Easily Create Origami with Curved Folds and Surfaces Origami—making shapes only through folding—reveals a fascinating area of geometry woven with a variety of representations. The world of origami has progressed dramatically since the advent of computer programs to perform the necessary computations for origami design. 3D Origami Art presents the design methods underlying 3D creations derived from computation. It includes numerous photos and design drawings called crease patterns, which are available for download on the author’s website. Through the book’s clear figures and descriptions, readers can easily create geometric 3D structures out of a set of lines and curves drawn on a 2D plane. The author uses various shapes of sheets such as rectangles and regular polygons, instead of square paper, to create the origami. Many of the origami creations have a 3D structure composed of curved surfaces, and some of them have complicated forms. However, the background theory underlying all the creations is very simple. The author shows how different origami forms are designed from a common theory.

Handbook of the Mathematics of the Arts and Sciences Bharath Sriraman 2021-08-15 The goal of this Handbook is to become an authoritative source with chapters that show the origins, unification, and points of similarity between different disciplines and mathematics. Some chapters will also show bifurcations and the development of disciplines which grow to take on a life of their own. Science and Art are used as umbrella terms to encompass the physical, natural and geological sciences, as well as the visual and performing arts. As arts imagine possibilities, science attempts to generate models to test possibilities, mathematics serves as the tool. This handbook is an indispensable collection to understand todays effort to build bridges between disciplines. It answers questions such as: What are the origins of interdisciplinarity in mathematics? What are cross-cultural components of interdisciplinarity linked to mathematics? What are contemporary interdisciplinary trends? Section Editors: Michael J. Ostwald, University of Newcastle (Australia) Kyeong-Hwa Lee, Seoul National University (South Korea) Torsten Lindström, Linnaeus University (Sweden) Gizem Karaali, Pomona College (USA) Ken Valente, Colgate University, (USA) Consulting Editors: Alexandre Borovik, Manchester University (UK) Daina Taimina, Independent Scholar, Cornell University (USA) Nathalie Sinclair, Simon Fraser University (Canada) What do figure skating, invasive species, medieval cathedrals, ropes, poems, wines, metaphors, rhythms, climate change, and origami have in common? Mathematics! The Handbook of the Mathematics of the Arts and Sciences is a stunning compendium of essays on these and scores of other unlikely subjects to which the mathematical imagination has been brought. It is at once a dazzlingly contemporary tour of human success at bringing order to the world, and a throwback to a time before the “unity of knowledge” became a mere slogan. It is a breathtaking work, for its ambitious scope and for its endless stimulation of the reader’s curiosity. - Harry R. Lewis, Gordon McKay Research Professor of Computer Science at Harvard University, editor of Ideas That Created the Future: Classic Papers of Computer Science Mathematics has always enjoyed deep connections with the arts, science, the humanities, philosophy, history, and society in general. However, these links are often overlooked or undervalued. This Handbook makes a massive statement about the extent and importance of the interdisciplinary nature of mathematics, and its relevance to all aspects of human culture. Its articles are scholarly and authoritative, but also highly readable and accessible to non-specialists. A triumph! -Ian Stewart FRS, Emeritus Professor - University of Warwick This handbook will delight anyone who loves the richness of mathematics and its interplay with the arts and humanities. Bharath Sriraman has given us a great gift, a treasure chest of connections to art and architecture, language and literature, philosophy, history, society, you name it. The book is authoritative and charming and instantly establishes itself as a landmark reference for interdisciplinary mathematics. Steven Strogatz - Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of Applied Mathematics at Cornell University.
Shadowfolds Jeffrey Rutzky 2011-02-01 Shadowfolds are a rich blend of traditional motifs expressed in a contemporary style. The technique, pioneered by artist Chris K. Palmer, creates patterns from a single, uncut panel of cloth, using a simple, three-step process. In Shadowfolds, Jeff Rutzky, himself an accomplished and passionate origamist, and Palmer offer detailed and fascinating information about the technique and its origins in both Moorish tile and classic Japanese origami. Palmer first encountered the elaborate mosaics of the Alhambra and became intrigued with learning to translate these patterns into folded paper. He turned for inspiration to the work of Japanese origami masters Tomoko Fuse, Jun Maekawa, Toshikazu Kawasaki and Shuzo Fujimoto, as well as to the great American origami artists Robert Lang and Peter Engel. The transition to working in cloth followed. The flexible property of cloth allows pleats to be folded to augment and give a dimensionality not present in a flat surface; and the translucent quality adds a unique intricacy to the geometric patterns. When lines in a pattern are folded as pleats, the resulting shapes formed by the pleats become part of the artistic expression of the material. The possibilities for using Shadowfolds in design are limitless. Some applications take advantage of light shining through the fabric, others show the richness of the folds that have a depth all their own. In addition to explaining the three very simple steps of the technique, the authors show how even novice folders can create breathtaking works of textile art, as well as fashion-forward clothes, accessories and home furnishings incorporating these three-dimensional embellishments. They also include a section of patterns, and fabric and craft resources.
