For more than three quarters of a century, he has cycled from a figure of darkness to one of lightness and back again; he’s a bat-shaped Rorschach inkblot who takes on the various meanings our changing culture projects onto him.

As it turns out, however, the connection between the two research areas commonly referred to as computa­ tional geometry and... more...
