Course Aims

This course recounts some relationships between art and mathematics. These relationships arise from the fact that many works of art, whether visual, musical or literary, are created subject to a set of constraints and that in many cases these constraints have a mathematical form. In the course we additionally limit our considerations to geometric constraints. We informally describe the development of geometry and the ways the different stages in this development materialize in various art forms both in Asian and Western art.
