This book concerns comics and what was, in 2003, a developing tradition of Disney-style comic-strips. It also deals with the Dutch graphic artist Maurits Cornelis Escher. Several of his images can be seen in animated form. It also talks of theatre and cinema too. For example, Luca Viganò's curious theatrical spectacle in Genoa about Evariste Galois. It talks about war and peace, ageless themes. All this and a tribute to the mathematician Ennio De Giorgi. …mehr

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"The series collects together the proceedings of an annual conference on Mathematics and Culture held in Italy. ... and they are well written. ... There are ... some very interesting pieces on some themes, and these will be of interest and use to those who wish to read about those particular themes. For this purpose, the books should be available at mathematical public libraries." (Gizem Karaali, MathDL, May, 2007)
