Gems of Geometry by John Barnes

Gems of Geometry is a book, published by Springer, yet written by an amateur mathematician, John Barnes. Barnes is computer scientist who designed the language RTL/2 while working at ICI. He wrote several books on the ADA language.

Sofar I only browsed Gems of Geometry but I already love it. The chapters are:
1. The Golden Number
2. Shapes and Solids
3. The Fourth Dimension
4. Projective Geometry
5. Topology
6. Bubbles
7. Harmony of the Spheres
8. Chaos and Fractals
9. Relativity
10. Finale
More later on this book when I have read (parts) of it. I am curious what he has tell about these topics and what I will learn from it.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
