Welcome to October - an exciting month for all those lovers of spooky activities and Halloween. Also, welcome to the forth post for the Inspirational Corner. I am very happy to see how many lovely people have taken some time to answer our questions and share their passion for mathematics. Hope you enjoyed our third... Continue Reading →

Since I first heard about Escher I have been a huge fan of his. His art fascinates me. His understanding of infinities, symmetry and other mathematical concepts has made me love and understand mathematics even more. The way he represents mathematical concepts in his art is incredible. In the past I have written and shared... Continue Reading →

Recently we have started to choose a topic each month for our posts on all the social media websites. This month is all about Mathematics and Physics, which I think is a very interesting subject. When I was in school, I used to think that physics is actually applied mathematics. I was wondering what would... Continue Reading →

It has been a while since I last wrote about an artist and their creations inspired by mathematical concepts. Nora Fok is an artist who expresses her ideas in a personal and distinctive way. She is intrigued by the world around her; she also asks questions and tries to find answers to them. She is fascinated by... Continue Reading →

Recently I have seen some beautiful 3D representations that were made by Leonardo da Vinci. I was quite curious first because I never heard of da Vinci's work in mathematics. Therefore, I was curious to find out more. Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, more commonly Leonardo da Vinci, was an Italian Renaissance polymath, whose areas of... Continue Reading →

I have talked about fractals multiple times before. Also, you probably know how much I enjoy discovering new artist in this domain. This post will be all about Paul Griffitts' work. Fractals have been a source of inspiration for many artists since they were first described by Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975. The well-known property of self-similarity... Continue Reading →

Recently, I have written a couple of posts on mathematics found in nature and I just wanted to continue with this topic. For today I decided to write more about some interesting spirals that can be found in nature. 1. Logarithmic Spiral - generally speaking, this is a self-similar spiral curve. This property is used often... Continue Reading →

I believe that this holiday had the theme "math in nature". During these weeks, I found myself looking for mathematical patterns in nature. Anything from symmetry, spirals, fractals or any other patterns have been part of my "research" project this summer. I don't have an explanation, it wasn't something planned, it just happened. So, I... Continue Reading →

Hope you are enjoying the summer. Recently I moved to Edinburgh and I have started visiting random things. One of the first things I wanted to see was the Edinburgh Butterfly & Insect World. Butterflies are some of my favorite creatures ever. Beside their incredible beauty, I find them extremely interesting (especially the process caterpillar... Continue Reading →
