About this book

Language: Danish

Though at first glance the natural world may appear overwhelming in its diversity and complexity, there are regularities running through it, from the hexagons of a honeycomb to the spirals of a seashell and the branching veins of a leaf. Revealing the order at the foundation of the seemingly chaotic natural world, Mønstre i Naturen explores not only the math and science but also the beauty and artistry behind nature's awe-inspiring designs. By exploring similarities such as those between a snail shell and the swirling stars of a galaxy, or the branches of a tree and those of a river network, this spectacular visual tour conveys the wonder, beauty, and richness of natural pattern formation.

Summary in Danish:
Mønstre i Naturen beskriver og illustrerer naturens betagende og fantastiske strukturer,mønstre og farvesammensætninger – fra leoparder til blade, snegle til stjerner, snefnug til bølger i sandet – samtidig som bogen også afslører videnskaben bag ved den utrolige diversitet. Vil du se og læse om symmetri, flow & kaos, matricer, fraktaler, spiraler, pletter & striber, bobler og skum samt bølger og skum - og hvordan alle disse fænomener opstår og optræder i naturen , så er dette bogen.
