The Bookshelf application offers access: I would have liked a more beginner-friendly level of detail in the math too. Daina provides the necessary instructions for even novices to crochet and create hyperbolic models of their own.

ISBN 3 17 Aug 22, The instructions are not adventyres for the basic-knowlege crocheter and are not set out as clearly as I am used to seeing in “project” books. For the crafter or would-be crafter, there are detailed instructions for how to crochet various geometric models and how to use them in explorations.

Tidbits from the History of Crochet 5. This one is beautifully illustrated, but information about how to create the shapes is not provided. Return to Book Page. Daina Taimina was born in Riga, Latvia in the same year as an International Congress of Mathematicians pivotal to non-Euclidean geometry as she describes in the Introductionso her influence on the hyperbolic plane almost seems fated. I didn’t really understand why a lot of the information about patterns in other art forms was included since it didn’t seem related to hyperbolic planes.

Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes by Daina Taimina

Can We Crochet It? One of the benefits of the crocheted hyperbolic manifold as a manipulable is its ease of creation. It takes a mind like Daina’s to bring material like this together, and to convey it in scupltures that sit tranquilly in the planez landscape. Now, Daina’s crochet models break through the austere, formal stereotype of mathematics and present a path to a whole-brain understanding of a beautiful cluster of simple and significant ideas.

New to the 2nd Edition; Daina Taimina discusses her own adventures with the hyperbolic planes as well as the experiences of some of her readers.

Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. I realized that when my father’s mother introduced me to crochet I was five or so she really taught me intrinsic algorithms for generating spherical, plane, and hyperbolic geometries.

As illustrated in the book, there is actually negative curvature and hyperbolic geometry all around us, but people generally see it without seeing it.
