Here, from the anthology, is a sample of its finery -- a poem by mathematician, poet, and editor, Sarah Glaz:
The First Negative by Sarah Glaz
In fact, there is no real reason why negative numbers should be introduced at all.
Nobody owned –2 books.
J.J. O’Connor & E.F. Robertson, An Overview of the History of Mathematics
Down the funnel of history
I search for you―the first man
to cup in his hands
minus one grain of fire:
“Ghost of departed quantity!
I am afraid
I am cradling an illusion!”
Yet from my vantage point
I discern a sign
upon the still uncharted number line
began to light the way
for abstract algebra to come into existence
several thousand years
in the future.
At her University of Connecticut website, math-poet Sarah Glaz offers links to lots of math-poetry and a host of other mathy connections. Visit here and enjoy!!
At the Bridges Math-Arts website, one may find an archive of papers and workshops presented at these conference -- and a search (perhaps using poetry) -- can lead to lots and lots of stimulating words and ideas.
