Jerry King is no exception. This book has nothing to do with the 'art' of mathematics

Jerry King is no exception. His informal, nontechnical book, as its title implies, is organized around what Bertrand Russell called the 'supreme beauty' of mathematics-a beauty 'capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. This book has nothing to do with the 'art' of mathematics. The author tried in the beginning to alert the reader that this book was possibly anathema to mathematicians since it wasn't 'math' as they understand it; rather a book allegedly 'about math. Whatever it is and whatever King set out to accomplish with it, he lost his way. The first third of the book seemed to be a roundabout description of the abstraction of numbers.

The Art of Mathematics book. Jerry King is no exception. NATURE In this clear, concise, Creative mathematicians seldom write for outsiders, but when they do, they usually do it well.

Jerry King, a mathematics professor and a poet, razes the barriers between a world of two cultures and hands us the tools for appreciating the art and treasures of this elegant discipline. In his fluid, poetic voice, he initiates us into the splendid wonders of the Mathworld. He provides us with an original framework for contemplating mathematics as art. He deepens our ultimate comprehension of art by comparing the beauty of a Rembrandt as well as a Jackson Pollock with the riches to be mined in an elegant proof.
