Two signals of varying frequency and phase result in a perpetual infinity (figuratively and literally as it actually constructs itself in the shape of the infinity sign given the right starting values), drawing and redrawing itself over and over, a picture of timing and sequence in the center of the screen. The familiar resulting shapes are known as Lissajous curves after French mathematician Jules Antoine Lissajous and his “beautiful machine” of 1855. Devised to draw a picture of two superimposed systems falling into and out of phase, Lissajous’ machine was constructed of a pair of tuning forks placed facing at right ...

The first volume of Collapse investigates the nature and philosophical uses of number through interviews with philosophers scientists and mathematicians, essays on the mathematics of intensity, terrorism, the occult and information theory, and graphical works of multiplicity.

PublisherUrbanomic1939
In this record of a 1939 meeting, two great philosophers of mathematics, Jean Cavaillès and Albert Lautman, attempt to define what constitutes the ‘life of mathematics’, between historical contingency and internal necessity, describe their respective projects, which attempt to think mathematics as an experimental science and as an ideal dialectics, and respond to interventions from some eminent mathematicians and philosophers.

In this introduction to Albert Lautman’s mathematical philosophy, Jean Petitot reaffirms the importance of a neglected thinker, and outlines Lautman’s extraordinary rearticulation of platonism, realism, dialectics, and the history and phenomenology of mathematical creativity.

Kolmogorov’s axioms present an abstract conceptual formalisation of probability that runs counter to our intuitive image of randomness and its concrete instances. But are the relations between concept and intuition, concrete and abstract, so straightforward? And does the revolutionary historical sequence leading from set theory and measure theory to abstract probability occlude a deeper, conceptual order of priority? Elie Ayache takes the true measure of this revolution in our understanding of randomness and probability, and its as yet unthought ramifications.
