Mathematics and Engineering Innovations Inspired by Nature

Rastislav Telgársky


Observation of nature and design of experiments inspires new mathematical investigations often resulting in new computer algorithms and constructions of new devices.
This paper attempts to collect many cases where mathematics is inspired by the nature, and leads to direct applications in engineering. Contents: Introduction; My Approach; Numbers and Measures; Geometry and Shapes; Motion and Time; Energy and Forces; Life on Earth; Eyes, Optics and Imaging; Processes; Cooperation and Conflicts; Conclusions; References.
