Abstract

The essays collected in Part I trace the origins of linear perspective in the Renaissance culture and explore its impact from painting to mathematical thought. Is there any meaningful link between linear perspective, which gave painting a new dimension, and complex numbers, which seem to be doing the same to physics? Part II is focused on exploring this link and helping the reader see the “art” involved in connecting complex numbers and probability through the notion of “quantum probability amplitude.”
