Imagine mathematics, imagine with the help of mathematics, imagine new worlds, new geometries, new forms. This bookis intended to contribute to grasping how much that is interesting and new is happening in the relationships between mathematics, imagination and culture. With a look at the past, at figures and events, that help to understand the phenomena of today.

It is no coincidence that this volume contains an homage to the great Italian artist of the 1700s, Andrea Pozzo, and his perspective views. Theatre, art and architecture are the topics of choice, along with music, literature and cinema. No less important are applications of mathematics to medicine and economics.

The treatment is rigorous but captivating, detailed but full of evocations, an all-embracing look at the world of mathematics and culture

Imagine mathematics, imagine with the help of mathematics, imagine new worlds, new geometries, new forms. Imagine building mathematical models that make it possible to manage our world better, imagine combining music, art, poetry, literature, architecture and cinema with mathematics. Imagine the unpredictable and sometimes counterintuitive applications of mathematics in all areas of human endeavour. Imagination and mathematics, imagination and culture, culture and mathematics. This sixth volume in the series begins with a homage to the architect Zaha Hadid, who died on March 31st, 2016, a few weeks before the opening of a large exhibition of her works in Palazzo Franchetti in Venice, where all the Mathematics and Culture conferences have taken place in the last years. A large section of the book is dedicated to literature, narrative and mathematics including a contribution from Simon Singh. It discusses the role of media in mathematics, including museums of science, journals and movies. Mathematics and applications, including blood circulation and preventing crimes using earthquakes, is also addressed, while a section on mathematics and art examines the role of math in design. A large selection presents photos of mathematicians and mathematical objects by Vincent Moncorge. Discussing all topics in a way that is rigorous but captivating, detailed but full of evocations, it offers an all-embracing look at the world of mathematics and culture.

Picasso che dialoga con Luciano Emmer e l immagine simbolo di Matematica e cultura 2011. Un omaggio al grande artista spagnolo e un ricordo del regista italiano che ha partecipato diverse volte agli incontri veneziani. E quelle immagini indimenticabili di Picasso a torso nudo che affresca una grande parete, e i suoi segni cancellati per un banale errore umano e rimasti solo sulla pellicola. Di arte, di arte contemporanea, di arte antica si parla. Di Venezia, di quel grande capolavoro che e la basilica di San Marco, e dei mosaici dimenticati del suo pavimento. Ne scrivono Ettore Vio che della basilica e il Proto, e Luigi Fregonese che ne ha portato a termine, con altri, il rilievo tridimensionale. Un lavoro di 20 anni E di teatro, di matematica e cucina, non tralasciando le tante applicazioni della matematica. Con un occhio particolare alla letteratura di Neal Stephenson e al suono delle maree. Non potevano mancare le bolle di sapone e i fantastici progetti architettonici basati su lamine di sapone computerizzate di Tobias Walliser. Ne manca la geometria delle gondole e i rapporti tra spazio matematico e teologia. Matematica, Venezia, cultura, un incontro che continua a stupire, anno dopo anno, rinnovandosi sempre. Pur restando in continuita con gli eventi passati.Matematica e cultura 2011.

Imagine mathematics, imagine with the help of mathematics, imagine new worlds, new geometries, new forms. The new volume in the series "Imagine Math" is intended to contribute to grasping how much that is interesting and new is happening in the relationships between mathematics, imagination and culture. The present book begins with the connections between mathematics, numbers, poetry and music, with the latest opera by Italian composer Claudio Ambrosini. Literature and narrative also play an important role here. There is cinema too, with the "erotic" mathematics films by Edward Frenkel, and the new short "Arithmetique " by Munari and Rovazzani. The section on applications of mathematics features a study of ants, as well as the refined forms and surfaces generated by algorithms used in the performances by Adrien Mondot and Claire Bardainne. Last but not least, in honour of the hundredth anniversary of his birth, a mathematical, literary and theatrical homage to Alan Turing, one of the outstanding figures of the twentieth century.

Dreaming Some years ago, in a corridor, in a small space, o? to the side, as in a hidden ravine, they were there. Tey couldn't be anywhere else. Hidden and mysterious, with faces that were dreamy and abstracted, or distracted, or pensive. Caught up in their thoughts, caught up in their space, a space that was distant and that only they could understand. Elusive and yet there, in front of me. Certainly, it was them, the six mathematicians of the Mathematica series by Mimmo Paladino. Tinkers of numbers and shapes. For ten years we have been searching for the mathematicians there. In Venice, the favourite place. An aura of mystery surrounds them, otherwise what kind of mathematicians would they be! Mysterious, dreamy, absent, absorbed are the faces of Paladino's mathemat- V icians. Te voices of ?ve Sardinian shepherds intone the Kyrie,the Libera Me Domine, the Sanctus. Insistent, profound, archaic voices. Te soundtrack of a journey, of a journey towards nothingness. A journey towards Te Wild Blue Yonder ,the last ?lm by Werner Herzog, winner of the international Critic's prize at the Venice f- tival in ????. Te heroes were astronauts, even if by now no one cares about their adventures;astronautswhotakeo?,whotravel,butdon'tknowwheretheyaregoing.

From the reviews of the hardcover edition:

... This conference ... to celebrate the centennial of the birth of Escher] resulted in an immensely interesting collection of articles ... Although Escher himself is no longer among us, M.C.Escher's Legacy, like a garden of continually blooming flowers, allows us to appreciate his heritage anew.

Notices of the AMS April 2003

... It is a handsome volume, and contains articles from 41 people, which cover a wide range of artistic and analytical endeavour. ... A quick dip into each section produces small gems. ... there is enough here to provide rich pickings for any interested party, no matter what their particular discipline is. Embedded in the various articles are even snippets which illuminate Escher's intentions, and his relationships with his mathematician friends ... Even though short, these are rewarding to read.

... the CD-ROM ... is an excellent addition to the book, and contains much more material, including "video" excerpts from some of the lectures."

Gaudi's dream which will be reached finalizing the construction of the "Sagrada Familia" in Barcelona, the victory of the Swiss sail boat "Alinghi," which won America's Cup, films such as " A Beautiful Mind" and "Enigma," the theatrical play based on the life of Galois, the images of the Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher, crypotography, comics. What all these topics have in common? Mathematics, of course. This book focuses on the important role of mathematics in culture. It shows how very complex links between mathematics and culture can be not only interesting and stimulating but also fun.

"I mean the third"cried the old man taking up the geometry book. "Well, young lady..."and he bent over his daughter. The princess gazed with terror into her father's keen eyes. He, on his part, got angry - pushed away his chair, dragged it back with a cl- ter - trying all the while to control himself; then again he would break out and storm, and wish the whole thing to the devil. As ill-luck would have it, to-day again his daughter answered at random and wrongly. "What an idiot!"he exclaimed, flinging down the book. The he rose, walked up and down, came back and stroked his daughter's hair, sat down again, and began his explanation once more. "It does not do, princess, it does not do," he said, seeing her rise to leave him with VII the book in her hand. "Mathematics is a noble science, and I do not want you to be just like all the silly young ladies one meets. Persevere and you will learn to like the work, and the dullness will be nocked out of your brain. " These words were spoken by Prince Andrei Bolkonskij, who was talking to Princess Marja Bolokonskaja, his daughter. They are two of the protagonists of Lev Tolstoy's War and Peace, finished in 1869.

Matematica e cultura, binomio sorprendente? Potrebbe sembrare ma da qualche anno si sono aperti dei grandi ponti tra le "due culture." A Venezia, citta' di ponti e di culture, si parla da oramai dieci anni di cultura e di matematica, si parla di arte, architettura, cinema, letteratura, ambiente, filosofia, di bolle di sapone, di Corto Maltese ed Hugo Pratt, delle investigazioni criminali. In questo nuovo libro, il decimo della serie iniziata a Venezia con gli incontri "Matematica e cultura" che tanti hanno cercato di imitare, si parla di tutto questo e tra gli altri ne scrivono Simon Singh (autore del best seller "L'ultimo teorema di Fermat"), alla sua terza presenza a Venezia, e Siobhan Roberts (autrice di "Il re dello spazio infinito. Storia dell'uomo che salvo la geometria"). Venezia ponte tra la matematica e la cultura.

Si parla di fumetti nel libro del 2004 con quella che sta diventando una tradizione con il fumetto stile Disney del 2003 e del grafico olandese Maurits Cornelis Escher, anzi si "vedono" alcune delle immagini che sono state realizzate in animazione. Si parla del sogno di un uomo, di Gaud, della grande ambizione di ascendere verso il cielo con la cattedrale di Barcellona; di come quel sogno si stia realizzando. Di teatro, di cinema si parla, ovviamente. Dell interessante spettacolo di Luca Vigan e del teatro di Genova su Evariste Galois. E anche della America?'s Cup, di come dei matematici abbiano contribuito alla vittoria della barca Svizzera nella pi importante avventura velica del mondo. Si parla di guerra e di pace, un argomento che non cessa mai di essere attuale. Inoltre, un omaggio al matematico Ennio De Giorgi che avrebbe dovuto essere il primo oratore del primo convengo di "Matematica e cultura." Una avventura dunque nella matematica che continua
