A Topological Picturebook synopsis
Praise to George Francis Photos A Topological Picturebook: Bravo to Springer To reissue this unique and beautiful book! It not only reminds the older generation of the pleasures of doing mathematics by hand, but also the new generation that means "what it means" already. - John Steelwell, University of San Francisco Topography has taught a whole generation of mathematicians to draw, to see, to think.
- Tony Rubin, author and author of Shadows of Reality: The Fourth Dimension of Relativity, Cubism, and Modern Thought The classical reference of how to provide topographic information visually, filled with amazing hand-drawn images of intricate surfaces. - John Sullivan, Technische Universitat Berlin The Topographic Picture Book allows students to see the topology as formulated by the original explorers: tangible and visual, free from formalities that overwhelm traditional textbooks.
- Jeffrey Wicks, author of The Shape of Space A Topological Picturebook is a visual feast for anyone interested in sports photos. Francis offers great examples of building "visualization muscles".
At the same time, he explains the basic principles and design methods for readers to create their own clear graphics. - George W.
Hart, Stony Brook University In this collection of narrative gems and interesting images, George Francis illustrates the relationship between chicken and eggs, in mathematics, in pictures and text. Since the publication of the book for the first time, the state of images in mathematics has been won, and now is the time to think about its meaning.
A topological book remains indispensable. - Marjorie Synthal, Smith College, Editor of Mathematical Intelligence Editor.
