a cura di F. Ferrara, L. Giacardi, M. Mosca

Con questo volume si arriva al numero 21 di una serie iniziata nel 1994 e che rappresenta una iniziativa editoriale piccola, ma di ottimo livello culturale e scientifico. Vi sono inclusi i testi di conferenze sui vari temi che caratterizzano il nostro ciclo, più i rendiconti del Premio Peano e il Progetto MATH 2014 (la Festa della Matematica e lo stage residenziale di Bardonecchia). Una sezione speciale è dedicato a “Donne Scienziate”. Compaiono anche delle conferenze nella sezione di Ivrea. Il volume conclude con degli indici dei testi pubblicati nella serie di volumi dal 1993 al 2013.

This third book in the Nexus series offers papers that further broaden the horizons of studies in architecture and mathematics. One kind of analysis offered here, the geometrical analysis of an existing architectural monument, is treated in a different light, that is, with as much of an emphasis on methodology as on the particular results. These geometric approaches illustrate the usefulness of a rigorous mathematical approach to the study of architecture. A different kind of approach is offered by the examination of contemporary architecture through linear algebra. Nexus III: Architecture and Mathematics also includes discussions of the architecture of non-European cultures: Arabic, Inkan and Ottoman. Other contributions consider the symbolic value of perspective in painted representations of architecture, proportions in the architecture of Palladio and Wright, the issue of shape in the architecture of Le Corbusier.

This fourth book in the Nexus series offers papers that further broaden the horizons of studies in architecture and mathematics. Over the years, Nexus has truly shown itself to have created a just that: a nexus between disciplines, between "languages", between cultures. This new collection of papers carries on the splendid interdisciplinary variety that has characterized the previous three volumes: architects, historians, theoreticians, mathematicians and scientists from Australia, Canada, China, France, Italy, Portugal, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States, present papers on subjects as diverse as shape grammars, amphitheaters, neo-Platonism, Stonehenge, scientific rationalism, Vastu geometry, cubic equations and systems of proportion. Western architecture of almost every period is examined: Egyptian, Roman, medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Enlightenment, twentieth-century, as is the architecture of China, India and Islam. Containing such diversity in a single volume is quite a feat; that is, it is a volume as rich as the Nexus conferences themselves.

Nexus: Architecture and Mathematics is the record of presentations given during the first Nexus conference, "Nexus '96: Relationships Between Architecture and Mathematics," Fucecchio (Florence) 9-12 June 1996. The question that engineer Mario Salvadori explores in his address to the conference is a pertinent one: Can there be any relationships between architecture and mathematics? The papers in this volume demonstrate amply that there can. What mathematical ideas are present in architecture? Presented are geometrical forms and constructions, proportions, modular systems, minimum surfaces, number theory and symbolism, dimensional manipulation, fractals, and symmetry. How does architecture inspire mathematical thinking? Nexus: Architecture and Mathematics illustrates the relationships between pentadecagonal symmetry and Pisan mathematics of the 13th century; between the tensile structures of Frei Otto and ways to measure minimum surfaces; between the geodesic domes of Buckminister Fuller and the inherent stability of Archimedean solids. It appears then that rigorous mathematical processes and empirical architectural processes are not antithetical, but complementary. Each discipline is enriched by the discoveries of the other.
