How is it possible that a mathematician might talk of beauty in an equation more passionately than an artist talks about a painting? And if mathematics is so beautiful, why haven't more of us experienced this beauty? Daniel Pearcy delves into the wonderful world of mathematical beauty to understand exactly what it is, and whether anyone can experience it. With examples, research, insights and years of experience, Daniel provides a refreshing perspective on mathematical beauty which would intrigue a wide range of readers from teachers, students, mathematical enthusiasts and indeed anyone interested in the concept of beauty. If you've ever wondered how you might explain mathematical beauty to someone who has only ever thought of mathematics as a bunch of symbols and equations which don't make sense, then you'll find this book truly enlightening.
