Geometrie und ihre Anwendungen in Kunst, Natur und Technik (German Edition)

Die „Geometrie und ihre Anwendungen“ ist für Personen geschrieben, die von relativ einfachen Problemen der ebenen Geometrie bis hin zu schwierigeren Aufgaben der Raumgeometrie Interesse an geometrischen Zusammenhängen haben. Ähnlich wie beim „mathematischen Werkzeugkasten“ stehen Anwendungen aus verschiedenen Disziplinen wie dem Ingenieurwesen, der Biologie, Physik, Astronomie, Geografie, Fotografie, Kunstgeschichte, ja sogar der Musik im Vordergrund.
