Recently, he combined his passions for science and art in two popular books, The Accelerating Universe, which appeared in , and The Golden Ratio, reviewed in this issue of Plus. The former book discusses "beauty" as an essential ingredient in fundamental theories.

The first complete, in-depth study of the origins of division in extreme and mean ratio (DEMR)-"the Golden Number"-this text charts every aspect of this important mathematical concept's historic development, from its first unequivocal appearance in Euclid's Elements through the 18th century.

Readers will find a detailed analysis of the role of DEMR in the Elements and of its historical. Euclid ( BC – BC), in “Elements,” referred to dividing a line at the point as “dividing a line in the extreme and mean ratio.” This later gave rise to the use of the term mean in the golden mean.

He also linked this number to the construction of a pentagram. The Fibonacci Series was discovered around AD. This comprehensive study traces the historic development of division in extreme and mean ratio ("the golden number") from its first appearance in Euclid's Elements through the 18th century.

Features numerous illustrations. not the case with Roger Herz-Fischler’s new book, The Shape of the Great Pyramid. Herz-Fischler is perhaps best known for his comprehensive chronicling of the historical and mathematical aspects of the golden section in A Mathematical History of Division in Extreme and Mean Ratio.

Euclid defines the "extreme and mean ratio," or "Divine Proportion," as the following relationship: When a line is divided such that the smaller section of the line (BC) is related to the larger section of the line (AC) in the same ratio as the larger section is related to the whole line (AC), then the line is divided in the Divine Proportion.

Readers will find a detailed analysis of the role of DEMR in the Elements and of its historical. In mathematics, two quantities are in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities.

The first recorded definition of the golden ratio dates back to the period when Greek mathematician Euclid (c. BC) described what he called the "extreme and mean ratio". However, the ratio’s unique properties became popularized in the 15th century, when aesthetics were a vital component of Renaissance art and geometry served both.

Roger Herz-Fischler in A Mathematical History of Division in Extreme and Mean Ratio (Wilfred Laurier University Press,reprinted as A Mathematical History of the Golden Number, Dover, ) concludes "that Ohm was not making up the name on the spot and that it had gained at least some, and perhaps a great deal of currency, by Thus the ratio of the eighth and seventh numbers in the Fibonacci series is 34/21= and this is the eighth convergent of the continued fraction.

The subject has now been exhaustively treated by Roger Herz-Fischler, A Mathematical History of Division in Extreme and Mean Ratio. Thus, in the book [43] the concept of the Mathematics of Harmony“ ” is directly associated with the golden “ ratio”—the most important ancient mathematical discovery in the field of harmony, which at that time was called “the division of the segment in extreme and mean ratio”.

mathematical relationships and the key to the physics of the cosmos. In Elements, Euclid ( BC) represented a line by dividing at the point as the extreme and mean ratio. Afterwards the use of the term, Mean, appeared as Golden Mean to represent the ratio.

the golden ratio which is a formula known as pi, where the length of the longer segment is in perfect ratio to the length of the shorter segment To the Greeks this was a mathematical equation; but eventually after the arrival of pythagorus and his teachings, this symbol once again took on a symbolic meaning as well.

The physical, metaphysical, and esthetic associations of the irrational number known successively in mathematical history as “mean and extreme ratio,” “the golden section,” and φ ([1+√5]/2, or )—based on the division of a line into two parts, such that the ratio of the whole to the greater part equals the ratio of the greater to the lesser part-fascinated certain.

The notion “division in extreme and mean ratio” (DEMR) has been designated by various expressions. Among these, the term golden section has been most difficult to trace. It has frequently been stated that the golden section has already been called sectio aurea in antiquity; it is also claimed that the term was first used in the Middle Ages or that it was coined by Leonardo da Vinci.Of course is was not called the "golden ratio" then (a term originating in the 's probably), but Euclid's term (translated into English) is dividing a line in mean and extreme ratio.
