A few thoughts on the aesthetics of mathematics in research and teaching.

Journal article

Larcombe, Peter J. 2018. A few thoughts on the aesthetics of mathematics in research and teaching. Palestine Journal of Mathematics.
Authors Larcombe, Peter J. Mathematical aesthetic, having a variety of forms, is commonly experienced by mathematicians as a genuine reality and is available at every level of study. This short essay in hopefully moving beyond standardised hermeneutic critique attests to its authenticity through the words of some mathematical proponents, and reminds us that it should be promoted to children and students as a phenomenon that is as accessible as it is incontestable.
