In this article we discuss some of the issues concerning the possible relationships between art and mathematics. In particular, we address the questions of whether or not mathematics is art – or at least contains a significant artistic component – and how one might use mathematics and mathematical artifacts in art. We illustrate with a number of examples taken from our own work (the examples appear in color on the CD-ROM). folly for to need to seem to glimpse what where- where- what is the word 1 Introduction: Art & Mathematics For several years past I have been intending to write an article on my thoughts and experiences about using mathematics in art. However, as a professional mathematician, working in the geometric theory of dynamical systems, putting pen to paper has turned out to be harder than I anticipated. In part, this is because the style of mathematical exposition is so very different (easier I could say) from that expected i
