In the second of his trilogy of books exploring nature's patterns, Philip Ball looks at how regular forms and arrangements arise from flow and motion. Beginning with Leonardo da Vinci's investigations into the movement and flow of water, Ball describes efforts to understand these seemingly simple yet scientifically very challenging phenomena. Discussing topics such as vortices, convection, sand dunes, flocks and swarms, he shows how the same physical and mathematical principles underlie the patterns of flow.
