NOTE: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. This review is my honest opinion of the book.

________________________________________

DESCRIPTION:

The Golden Ratio examines the presence of this divine number in art and architecture throughout history, as well as its ubiquity among plants, animals, and even the cosmos. This gorgeous book features clear, entertaining, and enlightening commentary alongside stunning full-color illustrations by Venezuelan artist and architect Rafael Araujo.

 

From the pyramids of Giza, to quasicrystals, to the proportions of the human face, the golden ratio has an infinite capacity to generate shapes with exquisite properties. 

 

With its lush format and layflat dimensions that closely approximate the golden ratio, this is the ultimate coffee table book for math enthusiasts, architects, designers, and fans of sacred geometry."

__________________________________

The Golden Ration by Gary Meisner is an exquisitely illustration, beautifully and clearly written introductory book about the Golden Ratio and related subjects.  There are lovely full-colour illustrations and photographs on nearly every page.  The book begins with the unique properties of the golden ratio and then continues on to its appearance in art and design, architecture (pyramids, cathedrals, musical instruments), nature (leaf and petal arrangements, fractals, spirals, facial proportions, buckyballs, quantum physics, golden DNA, the nautilus controversy), and many other interesting mathematical goodies such as tessellations, platonic solids, the Fibonacci sequence, Pascal’s Triangles etc.  The book also includes appendices that deal with critical thinking, notes and further reading, and “Golden Constructions”.  There are a number of equations and geometrical illustrations, but nothing particularly complicated.  In the author’s own words:  “not everything is based on the golden ratio, but the number of places in which it seems to appear is truly amazing and we are sure to uncover it more and more as technology advances and out knowledge of the physical universe expands”. 

 

This is definately a book I will be adding to my library.

Important Things about Class 9th Maths NCERT Solution

The proper study plan is necessary to get good marks in mathematics in CBSE. The syllabus is tough and the time given to students for preparation of exams is really less. As class 9th is the basic block of tougher, mathematical calculations in the upper standards, it is very important for a student to be crystal clear with the NCERT solutions for class 9th maths.

 

Why Are Students Unable To Get The Good Results In Class 9th?

The NCERT books have a number of questions which do not have solutions. Most of the students think that solving these unsolved questions is just a waste of time. Either it seems very difficult to them, or they are just unwilling. The reality is that these unsolved questions are extremely important from examinations point of view. If a student solves these questions, this makes sure that their concept is clear regarding particular maths chapter.

 

Tricks to Follow

There are so many videos today on you-tube which offers class 9th maths NCERT math video lectures. These videos are absolutely free. Students who have thoroughly read the chapter could also face problems in solving these questions. The video lectures are of great help here. These videos are available all the time one just needs to have a reliable internet connection.

 

A student can take help from these solution videos at their own suitable time. Instead of giving heavy fees to the coaching institutes, it is far better to self-study with the help of these videos. It saves money, time and makes a student independent.

Reading progress update: I've read 10 out of 224 pages.
Introduction to Topology - Bert Mendelson

A book by a mathematician for mathematicians but it does to some extent appeal to a person's intuition. On the other hand it has that thing where a zillion symbols and axioms are introduced in the space of about 2p. You folks ever heard of a table so people with naff memories (like me) can look them up easily? Jury's out as to whether this is gonna work for me or not. The concept of a metric is explained well, at least; it's just a quantitative concept of distance.

Nonlinear Time Series Analysis, Holger Kantz and Thomas Schreiber
Nonlinear Time Series Analysis - Thomas Schreiber,Holger Kantz

This book makes an excellent attempt to clearly explain a topic that is conceptually difficult, mathematically obscure (and potentially difficult...) and fraught with pitfalls that have trapped many, many unwary but enthusiastic scientists. The early chapters build on each other logically and provide a usable entry into the field and its practicalities. The later "advanced topics" represent a significant jump in difficulty, requiring a wide range of mathematical techniques that are assumed rather than explained, and are really only a good jumping off point into the wider literature on some really esoteric subjects...
