Coetzee Reviews Strange Attractors in Even Stranger Place

by Eric Banks | Aug-12-2009


I haven’t been clocking the reviews section of the Notices of the American Mathematical Society. I guess that will have to change, though. Book SA notes that the Nobel Laureate recently reviewed Strange Attractors: Poems of Love and Mathematics, edited by Sarah Glaz and JoAnne Growley

Growney, for the august academic journal. “An anthology like Strange Attractors,” he writes, “which brings together a hundred and fifty poems with some degree of mathematical content, makes more a priori sense than, say, a collection of famous speeches with some mathematical content.” The review is available by PDF here.
