It’s about everything. It’s about soccer and religion, about light and sound, about the sky and creation, about economics and ethics, about life and art.

Mathematics is the axis around which everything revolves – at least it is according to Rudolf Taschner, who doesn’t merely give an account of his science itself as a captivating and inspiring mathematician in this book, but who marvels and contemplates the world from a mathematical point of view. And who aims at enticing his readers to the same astonishment.

Rudolf Taschner

Prof. Dr. Rudolf Taschner, born in Ternitz in 1953, studied Mathematics and Physics at the University of Vienna. In 1977, he began working at the TU Wien, where, after a brief tenure at Stanford University, he continues to work as a professor until today. Together with his wife and colleagues at the TU Wien, Rudolf Taschner founded and operates »math.space«, an event venue in the MuseumsQuartier in Vienna, which presents mathematics as a cultural achievement and which has garnered great acclaim as a highly innovative institution both in Austria and abroad. In 2004, Rudolf Taschner was elected »Scientist of the Year«.
