Approximately equal to 1.618 and denoted by the Greek letter phi, it's been canonized as the Divine Proportion. Its devotees will tell you The Pythagoreans discovered it in their studies of regular pentagons, pentagrams and other geometric figures. "Mathematics is the language in the which God wrote the universe." --Galileo (1564-1642) Is it just coincidence? I got inspiration to do the sculptures after reading The Divine Proportion: A Study in Mathematical Beauty by H.E. In this essay I will be The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order, symmetry, and limitation; and these are the greatest forms of the beautiful. Aristotle. In addition to the above, phi can also be found in the following Often called as most beautiful number in the world; Mean of Phidias, Golden Mean, Golden Ratio, Golden Section, Medial Section, Divine Section Divine Proportion! Markowsky, Misconceptions about the golden ratio, College Mathematics Journal Vol. It was closely studied by the Greek sculptor, Phidias, and as a result, it took on the name of Phi. Then I learnt about the divine proportion, Phi, from my mathematical genius brother Umais. It seemed uneven because of the number 5, and yet had a beautiful symmetry. In mathematics and the arts, two quantities are in the golden ratio if the ratio between the sum of those quantities and the larger one is the same as the ratio between the larger one and the smaller. The golden mean is also referred to as the golden section, golden proportion, golden ratio, phi ratio, sacred cut, divine proportion, rule of thirds, or the Fibonacci ratio. Above is the Fibonacci spiral which I used as a template. Called De divina proportione (The Divine Proportion), it explores the mathematics of the divine proportion (or golden ratio) and its relation to the heavenly sphere. The golden ratio is a mathematical constant, . W., The Study of Mathematics, in Mysticism and Logic, and Other Essays, chapter. In the 13th century, a mathematician named Mathematicians have studied the golden ratio because of its unique and interesting properties. Studies by psychologists, starting with Fechner, have been devised to test the idea that the golden ratio plays a role in human perception of beauty. Separating the myth from the math in the golden ratio, the second-most famous irrational number. As the Golden Section is found in the design and beauty of nature, it can also be used to achieve beauty and balance in the design of art. (also known among other names as the Divine Ratio, the Golden Rectangle, the Golden Section, the Golden Mean, the Fibonacci Numbers, ) Foreword.
