Paradox in Math and Poetry

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

“Barbers and Big Ideas: Paradox in math and poetry” has been published in the Journal of Mathematics and the Arts.

Paradox intrigues both mathematicians and artists of all kinds. Throughout the recorded history of human thought, paradox has been a signal that we have to look hard for explanations, whether in natural language or the symbols of math and logic. In this paper, Alice examine paradoxes that have intrigued her and which she has transformed into a number of poems.

The paper is available as a pdf (Paradox-final) or online  here at Taylor & Francis.
