Kunst, Musik, faith, das sind Themen, die wohl kaum jemand sogleich mit Mathematik assoziiert. In diesem Buch erklärt Norbert Herrmann in einem unterhaltsam zu lesenden Ton, wie selbst in diesen so anders gearteten
Gebieten die Mathematik Einfluss gewinnen kann. Dabei erzählt der Autor von großen Malern, Dichtern und Architekten, die mathematische Ideen in ihre Werke einfließen ließen, so z.B. Dürer, Goethe, Semper, Gaudi oder Mozart.
Felix Auerbach sagte einmal: „Die Furcht vor der Mathematik steht der Angst erheblich näher als der Ehrfurcht.“
In diesem Buch möchte der Autor alle, die der Mathematik eher mit Respekt begegnen, dazu ermuntern, sich der ehrfürchtigen Wissenschaft im Plauderton ein wenig zu nähern, ohne tief in sie eindringen zu müssen.
Das Werk ist für die vorliegende 2. Auflage komplett durchgesehen und an vielen Stellen wesentlich ergänzt, z.B. um einen langen Abschnitt über Leonardo da Vinci. Vollkommen neu aufgenommen ist ein Kapitel „Mathematik in der Sprache“.
Norbert Herrmann, Mathematiker am Institut für Angewandte Mathematik der Leibniz Universität Hannover, spricht seit Jahren in vielen Beiträgen von Funk, Fernsehen und Printmedien von der Schönheit und Eleganz der Mathematik. In seinen populärwissenschaftlichen Büchern hat er diese Ideen einem breiten Publikum nahe gebracht.
