Tim Boykett: Aesthetic and Mathematical Research: A Comparism with two Examples. In: Bridges 2010. Pages 359–362



This paper examines the emerging field of aesthetic research and my experience in two research projects. I would like to outline an argument that suggests that the methods of mathematical and aesthetic research may be more closely related to one another than they are to many other areas of research. In this process I will discuss why it is that the fields are, in my mind, closely related. In particular I would like to underline that research communication is not external to research practice, but an integral part of the research process.
