    Re: Math Quotes

    M.C. Escher.
    1898-1972.
    Artist, and leading exponent of the art of tessellation.


    The geometry of space translates to a reoccurring theme in my creations: the tessellation. A tessellation is an arrangement of closed shapes that completely covers the plane without overlapping and without leaving gaps. The regular division of the plane had been considered solely in theory prior to me, some say. I diverged from traditional approaches, and chose instead to find solutions visually. Where other mathematicians used notebooks, I preferred to use a canvas.

    To gain access to a greater number of designs, I used transformational geometry techniques including reflections, glide reflections, translations, and rotations. The result is a ´mathematical tessellation of artistic proportions.´

    Re: Math Quotes

    Fontenelle, Bernard de.
    1657 - 1757.
    French mathematician and philosopher.


    The geometrical method is not so rigidly confined to geometry itself that it cannot be applied to other branches of knowledge as well. A work of morality, politics, criticism will be more elegant, other things being equal, if it is shaped by the hand of geometry. Preface sur l'Utilité des Mathématiques et de la Physique, 1729.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Ibn Khaldun,
    1332-1406. Arab historian.


    "Geometry enlightens the intellect and sets one's mind right. All its proofs are very clear and orderly. It is hardly possible for errors to enter into geometrical reasoning, because it is well arranged and orderly. Thus, the mind that constantly applies itself to geometry is not likely to fall into error. In this convenient way, the person who knows geometry acquires intelligence. It has been assumed that the following statement was written upon Plato's door: "No one who is not a geometrician may enter our house."

    Re: Math Quotes

    Lagrange, Joseph Louis.
    1736-1813. French mathematician.


    "As long as algebra and geometry have been separated,
    their progress have been slow and their uses limited,
    but when these two sciences have been united,
    they have lent each mutual forces, and
    have marched together towards perfection."

    Re: Math Quotes

    Eric Temple Bell

    Profession: mathematician.
    Born 1883, Aberdeen,
    Scotland. Died 1960, Watsonville, California.


    "To appreciate the living spirit rather than the dry bones
    of mathematics, it is necessary to inspect the work of a master
    at first hand. Textbooks and treatises are an unavoidable evil...
    The very crudities of the first attack on a significant problem by a
    master are more illuminating than all the pretty elegance of the
    standard texts which has been won at the cost of perhaps
    centuries of finicky polishing."

    "Certainly he who can digest a second or third fluxion need not,

    Re: Math Quotes

    Bishop George Berkeley

    "what are these same evanescent increments?
    They are neither finite quantities, nor quantities infinitely small,
    nor yet nothing.

    May we not call them the ghosts of departed quantities?"

    Claude Bragdon

    Mathematics is the handwriting on the human
    consciousness of the very Spirit of Life itself.
