5000 Jahre Geometrie Geschichte, Kulturen, Menschen by Christoph J Scriba ( Book )
28 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in German and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Schon lange bevor die Schrift entwickelt wurde, hat der Mensch geometrische Strukturen wahrgenommen und systematisch verwendet. So entstehen beim Weben und Flechten einfache zweidimensionale Muster und ohne dreidimensionale Körper wie Quader, Würfel oder Pyramide ist keine Bautätigkeit denkbar. Das vorliegende Buch gibt einen faszinierenden Überblick über die geometrischen Vorstellungen und Erkenntnisse der Menschen von der Urgesellschaft bis hin zu den komplexen mathematischen wie auch künstlerischen Ideen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Neben vielen Abbildungen wird jede Epoche mit einer Tabelle zeit- und kulturgeschichtlicher Daten eingeleitet und mit einer tabellarischen Darstellung der wesentlichen Inhalte der Geometrie dieser Zeit abgeschlossen. Aufgaben am Ende jeden Kapitels laden den Leser ein, sich an den Problemen der alten Meister selber zu versuchen. Ein Buch für alle, die der Lebendigkeit und Entwicklung der Geometrie als erste " "Anwendungswissenschaft" " nachspüren wollen. Für die 3. Auflage wurden neuste Forschungsergebnisse über Woodhenge und andere frühmathematische Darstellungen aufgenommen. Zahlreiche Abbildungen, viele davon jetzt in Farbe, erhöhen den Lesegenuss des Buches."
