Here we present the work of Robert Fathauer, a physicist/engineer/mathematician with a special skills for the arts, from clay modeling of mathematical forms to computer-coded tessellations. His recent book "Tessellations" summarizes years of science, […]

## The Smile of Math: When Categories In...

Categorical thinking has proven to be useful in other disciplines as well, and thus, applied categories have been developed. We talked about this in another post. Books about category theory seem to be […]
