We grasp and transform the world through interplays of quantification and qualification. The cross pollination of geometric and literary figures is deeply embedded in our cognitive habits, instruments of inquiry and the constructed environment. Through time, thought has reflected on the visible processes and products of material craft to explain and train the invisible workings of the mind. Recursively, material craft embodies a tradition of splitting ideas into categorical parts and compositional units for reassembly. Although the mathematical and verbal arts are often placed in contrast, human inventions manifest a weave of alphanumerics. Mythic parables, geometric proofs, memory arts, poems, algorithms, buildings and cities emerge from the intercourse of measure and explication. This special issue of the Nexus Network Journal considers architectonic examples of past, present and potential geometries of rhetoric.

The Winter 2012 (vol. 14 no. 1) issue of the Nexus Network Journal is dedicated to the theme “Architecture, Systems Research and Computational Sciences”. This is an outgrowth of the session by the same name which took place during the eighth international, interdisciplinary conference “Nexus 2010: Relationships between Architecture and Mathematics, held in Porto, Portugal, in June 2010. Today computer science is an integral part of even strictly historical investigations, such as those concerning the construction of vaults, where the computer is used to survey the existing building, analyse the data and draw the ideal solution. What the papers in this issue make especially evident is that information technology has had an impact at a much deeper level as well: architecture itself can now be considered as a manifestation of information and as a complex system. The issue is completed with other research papers, conference reports and book reviews.

In celebration of the 2009 International Year of Astronomy, this issue of the Nexus Network Journal is devoted to relationships between astronomy, mathematics and architecture. Ancient cultures looked to the heavens in order to identify timeless principles for their own creations. Knowledge gained in astronomy was transformed into culture through architecture and design. Papers in this issue look at how astronomy influenced architecture and urban design.

From ancient to modern, architects have looked for fundamental underlying principles of geometry and proportion on which to found their designs. Such principles not only provide an order for the formal elements, they ground the architecture in timeless values and provide an order for the formal elements, they ground the architecture in timeless values and provide a source of cultural meaning. This book illustrates the use of fundamental principles of geometry and proportion in two ancient cultures, the Bronze Age and the Roman Age, as well as in twentieth-century North America.

This volume features a collection of papers dedicated to "Canons of Form-Making", in honor of the 500th anniversary of the birth of architect Andrea Palladio (1508-1580). Theorist as well as practitioner, Palladio's architecture was based on well-defined canons that he had gleaned from studying the treatises as well as the remains of architecture from antiquity. Palladio himself left to posterity not only his large corpus of built works, but his Quattro libri d'architettura. Three of the papers in this issue are specifically about Palladio and his work. The other papers deal with canons of form-making, ancient and contemporary.

This book presents an exploration of the arch from the points of view of architecture, mathematics, engineering, construction history, and cultural symbolism. Leonardo da Vinci described the arch as "two weaknesses which, leaning on each other, become a strength," a metaphor for the way that science and art lean on each other to strengthen our lives.

Baroque architect and mathematician Guarino Guarini is the subject of this issue of the Nexus Network Journal. A group of international scholars were invited to contribute papers that shed light on the unanswered questions in several areas: Baroque architecture in general and Guarini’s architecture in particular; philosophy; history of structural mechanics; mathematics and history of mathematics, cosmology. As always, the NNJ takes an interdisciplinary approach to the broad range of subjects that Guarini concerned himself with, thus the final results will add significantly to our understanding of how Guarini’s actual practical and technical processes were informed by knowledge of his multifaceted scientific and philosophical interests.

The title of this issue of the Nexus Network Journal, "Architecture, Mathematics and Structure," is deliberately ambiguous. At first glance, it might seem to indicate the relationship between what buildings look like and how they stand up. This is indeed one aspect of what we are concerned with here. But on a deeper level, the fundamental concept of structure is what connects architecture to mathematics. Both architecture and mathematics are highly structured formal systems expressed through a symbolic language. For architecture, the generating structure might be geometrical, musical, modular, or fractal. Once we understand the nature of the structure underlying the design, we are able to "read" the meaning inherent in the architectural forms. The papers in this issue all explore themes of structure in different ways.

Die Vereinigten Staaten, China und viele andere Länder werden von Aufständen erschüttert. Geheimnisse, Lügen und der technische Fortschritt haben auf der ganzen Welt Schockwellen ausgelöst, die von Land zu Land und von Kopf zu Kopf ziehen. Polizeistreitkräfte liefern sich Kämpfe mit neural vernetzten Protestanten. Das Militär wurde mobilisiert, überall droht die politische Ordnung zusammenzubrechen. Die durch die Nano-Droge Nexus ausgelöste Revolution hat begonnen. Innerhalb dieser Wirren und in einer Welt, in der die Kinder jener tiefgreifenden Veränderungen des menschlichen Wesens an Einfluss gewinnen, verfolgt eine totgeglaubte Wissenschaftlerin einen Rachefeldzug, sämtliche elektronisch gesteuerten Systeme des Planeten unter ihre Kontrolle zu bringen und die Welt nach ihrem Bild neu zu erschaffen. Nichts wird jemals wieder so sein wie zuvor. Ramez Naams Nexus-Trilogie gehört zu den wichtigsten Science-Fiction-Werken unserer Zeit und lotet auf geradezu bewusstseinsverändernde Weise die philosophischen, politischen und nicht zuletzt post-humanistischen Folgen der Verschmelzung von Mensch und Technik aus. Mit APEX erscheint nun der dritte und abschließende Teil der Saga in deutscher Sprache. "Gut. Erschreckend gut." [Wired] "Ein hervorragend aufgebauter High-Tech-Thriller voller herrlich nachdenklicher moralischer Ambivalenz ... ein verdammt guter Roman." [Cory Doctorow] "Reich an Charakteren und knackigen Actionszenen. Besonders die Ausblicke auf die Welt von Morgen sind faszinierend." [Publishers Weekly] "Ähnlich wie Michael Crichton beweist Naam ein Gespür dafür, hochaktuelle wissenschaftliche Thesen über das Medium eines massenkompatiblen Pageturners zu vermitteln." [SFX Magazine] "Ramez Naam ist der einzig wahre Nachfolger von Michael Crichton." [Scott Harrison, Autor von Archangel]
