Ncepts of symmetry to portray fascinating facets of the physical and biological world More than 120 figu. Breaking symmetry to uncover one theory that rules them allBreaking Symmetry is certainly a magic term in this book With the use of innumerable real life examples and the use of dozens of pictures Stewart and Golubitsky try to illustrate the basic concept of the Theory That Covers Everything Being confronted with the dissection of physical phenomenon into degrees of symmetry gives the reader enough reason to believe that the big theory might ultimately be uncovered by using the mathematical tool of Breaking Symmetry But this book also points out that scientists are still far away from reaching this ultimate goalThe patterns discussed in this book takes you to the invisible world of uarks then shows you the wonderful stripes on the fur of a tiger and finally let you surf the spiral arms of our Galaxy Clearly it gives the reader the opportunity to have a taste from than one scientific discipline Biology Physic Chemistry Maths they are all addressed in t

From the shapes of clouds to dewdrops on a spider's web this accessible book employs the mathematical co. Going back to the beginning of the universe we see examples of symmetry breaking from uarks to the various forms comprised of them There seems to exist a fractal nature in how symmetry of any kind is broken The breaking of symmetry that gave tigers their stripes is the same phenomenon that gave mass to energy though the Higgs was discovered after Stewart s book Ian Stewart examines the symmetry of life and non life as it exists throughout the universe I read this in tandem with Sean Carroll s lecture series on the Higgs It was a great paring because Stewart focused on the history of symmetry particularly highlighting Turing as well as a plethora of examples of symmetry breaking Carroll focused on how symmetry brought about mass in the first place If I had read Stewart alone I would have already been impressed with the wide survey of the symmetry and symmetry breaking that exists all around us and how it is connected to emergence Coupled with Carroll s

    A very nice book explaining the mathematical concept of symmetry and its application to patterns formations in physics biology astronomy etc I really love that the authors begin the discussion with Curie's princ

    This is a wonderful book about the things that BREAK symmetry Lots and lots of illustrations that truly bring the topic to life The very first photograph is of a milk drop falling into a saucer of milk The circular wave centered around the point where the drop hit the surface rises as a crown The crown has 24 spikes and droplets so there is 24 fold symmetry The reason there is ALWAYS a 24 fold symmetry seems to be a mysteryThe book covers

    Nice book easily accessible even to people with no mathematical background and with very interesting insights and very good explanations and examples of what is symmetry and symmetry breaking I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book The only small defect is that the influence of symmetry and symmetry breaking in particle physics and in uantum mechanics where these concepts play a huge role was addressed only uite

    Part of my job includes teaching uantum mechanics to other people so when I find a math book that not only offers up insightful takes on mathematical concepts I'm not already nauseatingly familiar with but does so in humorous and accessible pro

    Interesting treaty on symmetry

    Expected interesting examples from a person like Golubitsky
