1. You'll learn how the spirals in the head of a sunflower grow at an exact rotation of a specific degree and angle.
2. You'll find out how petal and leaves of specific flowers and plants form at specific number combinations and alternate patterns.
3. You'll learn about viruses from a fourth dimention.
4. Darwin is going to be described in whole new light.
5. Variety of mathematical approaches from sequences, networks, cellular and topological theories, as well as multi-dimentional geometries.
If you're a scientist, of someone who has been surrounded by the field of science and biology, this is definitely one of those books you HAVE to read. I am absolutely intrigued by how mathematics integrates in every aspect of our lives, to the very cellular level of our existence. This book not only covers our own world, but the whole sets of worlds on our planet. It connects every realm of existence through mathematics.
As I mentioned before, though. I will be reading it again. I think you'll either read this book once and that's it, or you'll read it once and you'll crave to go back and revisit some concepts that didn't quite settle with you.
How do you feel about mathematical theories being part of every aspect of our lives?
