Some of theWeyl’s greatest achievements had been in the deep mathematical settingthat underlies the study of symmetry, and his lectures were strongly influenced byhis mathematical tastes; butWeyltalked with authority about art and philosophyas well as mathematics and science.You will find in the book discussions of thecyclic groups, dihedral groups, as well as wallpaper groups. Most important, you willfind a fascinating treatment in words and pictures of how these purely mathematicalabstractions relate to the physical universe and works of art throughout the ages.Symmetry is a vast subject, significant in art and nature.
