Ian Stewart is Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at Warwick University. He is a well-established communicator of mathematics, and the author of over 80 books, including several on the subject of symmetry. His summary of the problems of mathematics, From Here to Infinity, and collections of his columns from Scientific American (How to Cut a Cake, Cows in the Maze), have been very successful, and his recent book Professor Stewart's Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities, has been a bestseller.
"In his usual manner, noted mathematician and prolific writer Stewart shares mathematical ideas in an enjoyable context. Overall, a good read for anyone wanting to know about symmetries. Highly recommended." -J. Johnson, Western Washington University, CHOICE
