Malcolm Stewart has discovered a remarkable geometrical device. The 'starcut diagram', as he has called it, is at first glance a simple way of dividing the area of a square. After extensive research, however, he found that it has extraordinary mathematical properties, suggesting that it may be no less than the source of the number system used when ancient humanity first built cities.He shows that the starcut diagram underlies many significant patterns and proportions across the world: in China, the shaman's dance; in Egypt, the Great Pyramid; in Europe, a Raphael fresco; in Asia, the Vedic Fire Altar, and many others. This book is an intellectual adventure, written for a general reader without specialist knowledge. Illustrated with around 180 photographs, drawings and diagrams, it tells the story of many fresh discoveries, bringing sacred geometry to life in an original and inspiring way.

The Cultural Significance of Structure

Symbol, Pattern and Symmetry: The Cultural Significance of Structure investigates how pattern and symbol has functioned in visual arts, exploring how connections and comparisons in geometrical pattern can be made across different cultures and how the significance of these designs has influenced craft throughout history. The book features illustrative examples of symbol and pattern from a wide range of historical and cultural contexts, from Byzantine, Persian and Assyrian design, to case studies of Japanese and Chinese patterns. Looking at each culture's specific craft style, Hann shows how the visual arts are underpinned with a strict geometric structure, and argues that understanding these underlying structures enables us to classify and compare data from across cultures and historical periods. Richly illustrated with both colour and black and white images, and with clear, original commentary, the book enables students, practitioners, teachers and researchers to explore the historical and cultural significance of symbol and pattern in craft and design, ultimately displaying how a geometrical dialogue in design can be established through history and culture.

In Patterns: Design and Composition, M. A. Hann and I. S. Moxon present guidelines for the original design and composition of regular patterns alongside an understanding of the inherent structures of these patterns. Starting with the compositional elements, Hann and Moxon take the reader through patterns in the environment, early forms of patterns and aspects of classification based on circles, squares, triangles and symmetry. With 250 images sourced from past examples as well as student work, this essential read for design students and researchers demonstrates how simplicity begets complexity in the design and composition of regular patterns.

Stripes, Grids and Checks considers the nature of lines and assemblies of lines, including stripes and grids, as well as related phenomena such as checks, tilings and patterns, regular and irregular, repeating and non-repeating. A wide range of examples are drawn from urban and rural environments, at the macro and micro levels, in land- and cityscapes, buildings, and other designed constructions, compositions and objects. Considered conventionally, checks, periodic tilings and regular patterns owe their compositional arrangements to an order imposed by an underlying grid structure. The intention in this book is to analyse, explain and illustrate the nature of each design type, to identify the structural (or geometric) similarities between each and to show how the manipulation of various underlying grid structures can provide innovative compositional frameworks for artists and designers. The discussion is richly illustrated with 400 black and white images and an eight page colour section.

Critical Ideas for Creative Practice

This book provides a critical examination of structure and form in design, covering a range of topics of great value to students and practitioners engaged in any of the specialist decorative arts and design disciplines. The complexities of two-dimensional phenomena are explained and illustrated in detail, while various three-dimensional forms are also discussed. In the context of the decorative arts and design, structure is the underlying framework, and form the resultant, visible, two- or three-dimensional outcome of the creative process. Whether hidden or visually detectable in the final design, structure invariably determines whether or not a design is successful in terms of both its aesthetics and its practical performance. Hann successfully identifies various geometric concepts, and presents and discusses a number of simple guidelines to assist the creative endeavours of both accomplished and student practitioners, teachers and researchers.

Symbols play an extraordinary role in human culture and belief around the world. Their power, for good or ill, can launch us into alternative realms, leading us not only towards light and truth, but down darker paths to intolerance and hatred.Building on his acclaimed study of sacred geometry in Patterns of Eternity, the author starts by exploring megaliths, the ancient stones of the Bible, the lingams on India and the Black Stone of Mecca. He goes on to consider questions of harmony and value in the Flower of Life, the Enneagram, the Solfeggio Scale, alchemical symbols and the Cube of Light, as well as the controversial area of the swastika.Throughout, the author brings the unexpected discoveries of his own journeys to bear on the subject, continually testing the limits of our material reality.Wonderfully illustrated with over 200 colour photographs and diagrams, this fascinating book covers ancient history, science, music, art and culture, drawing them together into a coherent, inspiring journey for the reader.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Mathematik - Geometrie, Note: 1,3, Universität Kassel (Institut für Mathematik), Veranstaltung: Fachwissenschaftliches Seminar, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der nachfolgenden Arbeit soll die Selbstähnlichkeit und fraktale Dimension, Teil 1 behandelt werden. Vorab wird der Begriff „Fraktale“ im Allgemeinen beschrieben und erklärt. Zur Verdeutlichung des Begriffs wird ferner auf die unterschiedlichen Eigenschaften der Fraktale, die das Grundgerüst der Fraktalgeometrie und den Schwerpunkt der Arbeit bilden, eingegangen. Des Weiteren wird die Selbstähnlichkeit dargestellt, die sich unter anderem zwischen der exakten und der statistischen Selbstähnlichkeit unterscheiden lässt. Einige Beispiele sollen diesen Unterschied deutlich machen und herauskristallisieren. Darauf aufbauend wird die Selbstähnlichkeitsdimension allgemein definiert sowie die Formel zu ihrer Berechnung abgeleitet. Anschließend wird sich den mathematischen Fraktalen zugewandt. Im Mittelpunkt stehen die Cantor-Drittelmenge und das Sierpinski-Dreieck, bei denen jeweils die Selbstähnlichkeit sowie deren Dimension beschrieben und vertiefend erklärt wird. Abschließend werden unterschiedliche Wischaktivi-täten in der Ebene und im Raum anhand zahlreicher Beispiele skizziert und diese miteinander verglichen.

Markentransferstrategien sind in der Praxis sehr beliebt, da sie den Neuprodukterfolg steigern können. Zahlreiche Markentransfers scheitern jedoch. Carsten Schulze-Bentrop führt umfangreiche empirische Analysen durch, um die Relevanz einer Vielzahl von Erfolgsfaktoren von Markentransfers in Abhängigkeit verschiedener Kaufentscheidungssituationen zu untersuchen. Dazu entwickelt er eine Taxonomie von Kaufentscheidungstypen, um Kundensegmente zu bilden, für die er die relevantesten Erfolgsfaktoren identifiziert. Damit leistet er einen entscheidenden Beitrag zum segmentspezifischen Management von Markentransfers.
