Review of Symmetry: The Ordering Principle

Review of Symmetry: The Ordering Principle
Review of Symmetry: The Ordering Principle
Symmetry: The Ordering Principle by architect David Wade is more discursive, and less mathematical. While there is a nod to classifications of symmetries it soon becomes clear that the author is more interested in patterns than in symmetry per se, and many of the objects under discussion, such as strange attractors and vortex streets, are not truly symmetrical. The somewhat ineffable concept of ’Li’ is introduced (though not defined, to my satisfaction at least) – the subject of another book by this author in the same series.

Abstract

Symmetry: The Ordering Principle by architect David Wade is more discursive, and less mathematical. While there is a nod to classifications of symmetries it soon becomes clear that the author is more interested in patterns than in symmetry per se, and many of the objects under discussion, such as strange attractors and vortex streets, are not truly symmetrical. The somewhat ineffable concept of ’Li’ is introduced (though not defined, to my satisfaction at least) – the subject of another book by this author in the same series.
