Peter Richter - Institut für Theoretische Physik Ratios of numbers: a mathematical construct and a vote 1:11:1.414…1:1.618…1:2

Peter Richter - Institut für Theoretische Physik Some people claim that Nautilus embodies the golden section – does it?

5
Peter Richter - Institut für Theoretische Physik Does Apollo?

6
Peter Richter - Institut für Theoretische Physik May be the Parthenon und Walhalla?

Peter Richter - Institut für Theoretische Physik The golden number g is the most irrational of all numbers: even though its continued fraction approximation p n /q n converges quadratically fast with the denominator q n, this convergence is slower than for any other irrational number! Therefore, g embodies the principle of irrationality, it is as far as can be from any resonances like 1:1, 1:2, 2:3, … g may not only be considered on a line but also on a circle

Double pendulum and roses …

16
Peter Richter - Institut für Theoretische Physik Do we understand? Double pendulum: yes, from –Poincaré ~1890 –Kolmogorov, Arnold, Moser 1963 –numerical work in the 1980s Sunflowers, pine cones, and roses? partly, from –Leonardo da Vinci ~1510 –Kepler ~1610 –mathematical modelling of morphogenesis … but not really: closer analysis of the principles of regulation is needed, starting from a molecular level, identifying the important agents, finding appropriate equations and investigating their dynamics. The challenge: explain the universality of g!
