6 The Artistic Geometry of Consensus Protocols
The first book that documents and highlights the connections between systems theory and art as an important avenue of research Art's increasing importance in STEM education will attract a new audience to science, technology and mathematics (science, technology, engineering and math) Demonstrates how technical analyses of artistic pieces and performance can inspire the creation of new artistic forms Broadens the purview of systems and control from the purely technical and technological to the artistic and imaginative
