The first edition of Connections was chosen by the National Association of Publishers (USA) as the best book in OC Mathematics, Chemistry, and Astronomy OCo Professional and ReferenceOCO in 1991. It has been a comprehensive reference in design science, bringing together in a single volume material from the areas of proportion in architecture and design, tilings and patterns, polyhedra, and symmetry. The book presents both theory and practice and has more than 750 illustrations. It is suitable for research in a variety of fields and as an aid to teaching a course in the mathematics of design. It has been influential in stimulating the burgeoning interest in the relationship between mathematics and design. In the second edition there are five new sections, supplementary, as well as a new preface describing the advances in design science since the publication of the first edition. Contents: Proportion in Architecture; Similarity; The Golden Mean; Graphs; Tilings with Polygons; Two-Dimensional Networks and Lattices; Polyhedra: Platonic Solids; Transformation of the Platonic Solids I; Transformation of the Platonic Solids II; Polyhedra: Space Filling; Isometries and Mirrors; Symmetry of the Plane. Readership: Polytechnic students, architects, designers, mathematicians and general readers."

Keywords:Design Science;Art;Architecture;Geometry;Polyhedra;Tilings;Graph Theory;Symmetry;Proportion;Golden MeanReviews: “This book, on the mathematics of natural and artful form, is a lively new entrant to the small shelf of those fine works.” Scientific American “If I had only one book in my library to which I refer for mathematics questions in art and architecture, this would be the one.” Nexus Network Journal “A worthy volume rediscovers the golden mean for readers in the postgeometry generation.” BYTE “… Kappraff's book is nothing less than the first textbook of design science.”Bulletin of the Buckminster Fuller Institute “This is no less than an early and strong move toward implementing Buckminster Fuller's call for a Comprehensive Anticipatory Design Science. Even a less-than-rigorous reading will convince you that something important is being presented here.” Whole Earth Review “For the visually oriented person with a hunger to understand pattern, Connections can be a bridge to a new world.” American Journal of Physics “A spectacular presentation of design science — ‘the grammar of space’ — that explores with rich details instances of similarity, proportion, tilings, graphs, lattices, polyhedra, isometries, and symmetry in art, architecture, engineering, and science. Punctuated with exercises and problems (thus making the monograph useful as a course or seminar text); illustrated with over 200 figures; supported by an extensive multi-disciplinary bibliography that is well-referenced to the text. A superb option for interdisciplinary seminars.” American Mathematical Monthly

In this large-format book, lavishly illustrated in color throughout, Allan McRobie takes the reader on an alluring exploration of the beautiful curves that shape our world--from our bodies to Salvador Dalí's paintings and the space-time fabric of the universe itself. The book focuses on seven curves--the fold, cusp, swallowtail, and butterfly, plus the hyperbolic, elliptical, and parabolic "umbilics"--and describes the surprising origins of their taxonomy in the catastrophe theory of mathematician René Thom.

The Golden Section has played a part since antiquity in many parts of geometry, architecture, music, art and philosophy. However, it also appears in the newer domains of technology and fractals. This book aims both to describe examples of the Golden Section, and to show some paths to further developments.

Recent progress in research, teaching and communication has arisen from the use of new tools in visualization. To be fruitful, visualization needs precision and beauty. This book is a source of mathematical illustrations by mathematicians as well as artists. It offers examples in many basic mathematical fields including polyhedra theory, group theory, solving polynomial equations, dynamical systems and differential topology. For a long time, arts, architecture, music and painting have been the source of new developments in mathematics. And vice versa, artists have often found new techniques, themes and inspiration within mathematics. Here, while mathematicians provide mathematical tools for the analysis of musical creations, the contributions from sculptors emphasize the role of mathematics in their work.
