Praise for George Francis's A Topological Picturebook: Bravo to Springer for reissuing this unique and beautiful book! It not only reminds the older generation of the pleasures of doing mathematics by hand, but also shows the new generation what ``hands on'' really means. - John Stillwell, University of San Francisco The Topological Picturebook has taught a whole generation of mathematicians to draw, to see, and to think. - Tony Robbin, artist and author of Shadows of Reality: The Fourth Dimension in Relativity, Cubism, and Modern Thought The classic reference for how to present topological information visually, full of amazing hand-drawn pictures of complicated surfaces. - John Sullivan, Technische Universitat Berlin A Topological Picturebook lets students see topology as the original discoverers conceived it: concrete and visual, free of the formalism that burdens conventional textbooks. - Jeffrey Weeks, author of The Shape of Space A Topological Picturebook is a visual feast for anyone concerned with mathematical images. Francis provides exquisite examples to build one's "visualization muscles". At the same time, he explains the underlying principles and design techniques for readers to create their own lucid drawings. - George W. Hart, Stony Brook University In this collection of narrative gems and intriguing hand-drawn pictures, George Francis demonstrates the chicken-and-egg relationship, in mathematics, of image and text. Since the book was first published, the case for pictures in mathematics has been won, and now it is time to reflect on their meaning. A Topological Picturebook remains indispensable. - Marjorie Senechal, Smith College and co-editor of the Mathematical Intelligencer

Das Thema »Raum« ist äußerst populär, die Vielfalt der Methoden und Gegenstandsbereiche wird jedoch zunehmend unüberschaubar. Hier setzt der Band an: Er versammelt Beiträge verschiedener Disziplinen, die eine ausdrücklich relationale oder ortsspezifische Beschreibung von Räumlichkeit vornehmen. Hierzu wird die aktuelle Raumdebatte in den Kultur- und Medienwissenschaften rekonstruiert und die Entstehung der Topologie im Kontext der Mathematik nachgezeichnet. Einzelanalysen widmen sich verschiedenen Anwendungsgebieten wie Architektur, Film- und Literaturwissenschaft, Kunst, Psychologie oder Soziologie und gehen auf die Schlüsselfunktion phänomenologischer und strukturalistischer Ansätze ein.

Zu den gegenwärtigen Raumdebatten. Seit dem Spatial oder Topographical Turn hat sich in den Kultur-, Medien- und Sozialwissenschaften eine neue Sicht auf das Thema Raum durchgesetzt. Vor diesem Hintergrund skizziert das Handbuch die Geschichte und Entwicklung der Raumthematik in den Naturwissenschaften, der Philosophie und den Künsten. Im Mittelpunkt stehen dabei disziplinenübergreifende Themen wie Erinnerungsräume, Globalisierung, Heterotopien und Postkolonialismus sowie mediale, kognitive, politische und urbane Räume.

How do you convey to your students, colleagues and friends some of the beauty of the kind of mathematics you are obsessed with? If you are a mathematician interested in finite or topological geometry and combinatorial designs, you could start by showing them some of the (400+) pictures in the "picture book". Pictures are what this book is all about; original pictures of everybody's favorite geometries such as configurations, projective planes and spaces, circle planes, generalized polygons, mathematical biplanes and other designs which capture much of the beauty, construction principles, particularities, substructures and interconnections of these geometries. The level of the text is suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. Even if you are a mathematician who just wants some interesting reading you will enjoy the author's very original and comprehensive guided tour of small finite geometries and geometries on surfaces This guided tour includes lots of sterograms of the spatial models, games and puzzles and instructions on how to construct your own pictures and build some of the spatial models yourself.
