The beauty behind the numbers:

Dynamical Systems

There seems to be a preconception that scientists are, generally, not very artistic. However, I would argue that art, and indeed, beauty is in the understanding of the subject. The equation “e=mc²” is a thing of beauty if you can comprehend the complexity and profound nature of the fundamental realisation it is expressing. The idea that energy and mass are “two sides of the same coin” is a cornerstone of modern science and to have the concept expressed so simply is surely a thing of beauty. In the eye of the right beholder it is art.
