Lattice Labyrinths Bridges Conference Paper 12

Warning – hard numerate thinking to be thunk.

I’m most honoured to have had a paper accepted for this August’s Bridges Conference in Seoul, Republic of Korea. At eight pages, it has only about one sixth the surface area of the workbook Lattice Labyrinth Tessellations, published by Tarquin, but at least it’s going to be freely available online. As thanks to those active mathematicians who have recently begun following my twitter feed, here is a link to a preprint of the paper. It is very compressed, and lots is left out – my “big book”, if it eventually appears, will run to a couple of hundred pages. I’ll be prototyping an illustrated presentation loosely based on the paper at the bookshop cafe philosophique ; details eventually. Get in touch if you are interested in an illustrated talk/workshop for a school, university or other group or have any  comments or proposals.

You can read (or cite!) my paper and all the others for 2014 and other years on the Bridges Archive site.

P.S. Links to the how-to-do-it workbook: From the publisher, or via you-know-who , better,  from a good independent bookshop or just Google.

About davescarthin

After a brief academic and local government career, long an independent bookseller/publisher at Scarthin Books, Cromford, Derbyshire, UK. An antiquarian bookseller in two senses, now also has time to be an annuated independent post-doc, developing the long dormant topic of lattice labyrinth tessellations - both a mathematical recreation and a source of compelling practical tiling/paving and textile designs. Presenting a paper and experiencing so many others at Bridges Seoul 2014 Mathart conference was a great treat, as was the MathsJam Annual Conference in November 2016. I'm building up to a more academic journal paper and trying hard to find practical outlets in graphic design and landscape architecture. An 8 ft square tiling design was part of the Wirksworth Festival Art and Architecture Trail 2016, followed by a triangles design in 2017. I love giving illustrated talks, tailored to the audience. Get in touch to commission or to collaborate.
