Following the simple instructions and crocheting the reader will develop a new understanding of the hyperbolic geometry which is all around us.

For the crafter or would-be crafter, there are detailed instructions for how to crochet various geometric models and how to advrntures them in explorations.

Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes : Daina Taimina :

You will develop an entirely new understanding by actually following the simple instructions and crocheting! However, the fun and wonder of this book adventutes the way it smashes different disciplines together and shows how they benefit each other – perhaps have always benefited each other. You can see a few pictures from the book here: May 03, notgettingenough rated it really liked it Shelves: Already read this title?

Still, it’s a fun book. One of the benefits of the crocheted hyperbolic manifold as a manipulable is its ease of creation. I think this book would plahes benefited greatly by having a co-author, someone who came out of the fiber art instruction world planws could have helped to include crocyeting novice – friendly patterning and discussion.


Afterthoughts of a Worm Hunter by Da I personally am not able to review this book. This book is really cool, but I would not recommend it unless you have some sort of an interest in math. Finally, we have a beautiful coffee-table book that uses visual delight to emphasise rather than hide serious mathematics.

Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes, by Dr. The Bookshelf application offers access: It does indeed contain simple and beautifully illustrated explanations of those two subjects, crocheitng with scholarly histories of both of them.

And probably not for very cgocheting kids. Paul Vittay rated it really liked it Mar 31, Hardcoverpages. Delightfully brilliant yet down to earth, Daina Taimina brings together the best aspects of “right brain” imagination and risk-taking with “left brain” facts, practicality, and pattern perception, creating a win-win that everyone will enjoy.

Daina Taimina has wrapt my earliest memories in glorious colors, intricate histories, and marvelous theorems. About Daina Taimina Daina Taimina was born in Riga, Latvia in the same year as an International Congress of Mathematicians pivotal to non-Euclidean geometry as she describes in the Introductionso her influence on the hyperbolic plane almost seems fated. This one is beautifully illustrated, but information about how to create the shapes is not provided.

I would have liked a more beginner-friendly level of detail in the math too. Brittany Wadsworth rated it really liked it May 30, Emidude rated it really liked it Feb 27, How to Make Models. Trivia About Crocheting Advent Other Surfaces with Negative Curvature 9.


Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes

Another is the unlikeliness of seeing a book of crochet patterns being brought out by a science and technology publisher and reviewed by science and maths journals. I highly recommend this book Unfortunately, it’s not a great crochet bookm though some of the projects are inspiring. It is quite funny. Any math book that makes me reach for a crochet hook and some sketching yarn is a fun book in my opinion.

A great dip-into source for the non-euclidiens amongst us, who insist in working with wool. Daina Taimina specially made a hyperbolic crochet homage to the Baltic Sea, entitled “Land and Sea,” as a contribution to the Latvian Reef, to which Dr Taimina is acting as an advisor, supporter, and inspirer.

From th With more than full color photographs, this non-traditional, tactile introduction to non-Euclidean geometries also covers early development of geometry and connections between geometry, art, nature, and sciences.

ISBN 3 17 Aug 22, I may have to read parts of the book a few times to understand the concepts, but I’m already crocheting a hyperbolic plane to help me visualize. I realized that when my father’s mother introduced me to crochet I was five or so she really taught me intrinsic algorithms for generating spherical, plane, and hyperbolic geometries.
