Symmetry : The Ordering Principle, Paperback / softback Book

Symmetry : The Ordering Principle Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Why on earth do cars have the same symmetry as dragonflies?

Is there really a beautiful swirling pattern lurking in every dripping tap?

What do insect eggs have in common with planets, and why?

In this exquisite book, the smallest and most concise ever produced, designer David Wade introduces the main principles of symmetry, and shows how, despite opinions over exactly what it is, symmetry can be found in almost every corner of science, nature and human culture.
