Beschreibung: Vortrag: How a number turns into a zebra – a mathematical photoshooting The author will present his latest book with the above title. The contents are mainly about the relationship between biology and mathematics. The missing link is photography – the book contains about 500 non-trivial photos of animals and plants that shall illustrate the idea behind the concept. To give an example, a typical double page is depicted, showing the largest and smallest land living warm-blooded creatures. Rather simple mathematical considerations (the ratio of volume and surfaces isdependent on the scale, i.e., the absolute size) explain the necessary difference in physiognomy and behavior. Another sample double page explains how the shallow sea ground can be full of rainbow colors when the sun is getting down. The refraction takes mainly place along certain isophotes of the water surface.
