What, after all, is mathematics but the poetry of the mind, and what is poetry but the mathematics of the heart? So wrote the American mathematician and educator David Eugene Smith. In a similar vein, the German mathematician Karl Weierstrass declared, A mathematician who is not at the same time something of a poet will never be a full mathematician. Most mathematicians will know what they meant. But what do professional poets think of mathematics? In this delightful collection, the editors present the view of the same terrain the connections between mathematics and poetry from the other side of the equation: the poets. Now is your chance to see if the equation balances. Keith Devlin, mathematician, Stanford University, author of The Math Gene, The Math Instinct, and The Language of Mathematics. This poetry anthology contains over 150 poems-each of which has a strong link to mathematics in content, form, or imagery. The collection is international, including translations of major poetic voices, and its time spread is at least 3000 years-from a fragment of The Song of Songs by King Solomon, circa 1000 BC, to contemporary American poetry. The common theme of the poems in this volume is love, interpreted with broad universality. The poems engage a variety of mathematical topics-from counting to commutative rings, and from the intermediate value theorem to infinity.
