             GEOMETRIC SCULPTURE - George W. Hart

     http://www.georgehart.com/sculpture/sculpture.html

  As a sculptor of constructive geometric forms, Hart's work
  deals with patterns and relationships derived from classical
  ideals of balance and symmetry. He uses a variety of media,
  including paper, wood, plastic, metal, and assemblages of
  common household objects.

    - history of mathematics
    - how-to: mathematics
    - how-to: science
    - mathematics - general
    - novels + short stories
    - number theory
    - physical chemistry
    - physics
    - probability + statistics
    - puzzles + problems
    - reference - mathematics
    - reliable, prolific authors on science + math
    - science - general

  Links to Amazon.com have been provided for your convenience.
  The list is also available for download as a MS Word document,
