Description

Reality's Mirror Exploring the Mathematics of Symmetry "Here is a book that explains in laymen language what symmetry is all about, from the lowliest snowflake and flounder to the lofty group structures whose astonishing applications to the Old One are winning Nobel prizes. Bunch's book is a marvel of clear, witty science writing, as delightful to read as it is informative and up-to-date. The author is to be congratulated on a job well done." - Martin Gardner "Bryan Bunch's ambidextrous mind leaps with ease from biology to physics as he explores the question of symmetry and handedness in the universe. An excellent treatment of the pervasiveness of symmetry in nature and an admirable weaving of common threads from many diverse fields." - Dr. Eugene F. Mallove Chief Science Writer Massachusetts Institute of Technology "Reality's Mirror is fascinating. It really is something of a grand tour of symmetry in the universe: why it must be here - and what happens when it isn't." - R. L. Graham Director, Mathematical Sciences Research Center AT&T Bell Laboratories
