Hermann Weyl

One of the best mathematicians of the 20th century wrote a classic study on Symmetry in mathematics, the sciences, nature, and art called Symmetry. Beginning with the premise that Symmetry symbolizes a harmony of proportions, Hermann Weyl investigates the concept before moving on to look at its more abstract variations and expressions, such as bilateral, translatory, rotational, decorative, and crystallographic Symmetry. Weyl explores the overarching abstract mathematical concept that underlies all of these particular forms with the aid of several examples. Symmetry is a study of seminal significance that examines the significance and wide range of Symmetry’s uses.
