AbstractA collection of essays intended to show the range of power in applying pure mathematics to human systems. There are two types of essay: those which employ tranditional mathematical proof, and those which do not. As mathematical proof may itself be regarded as art, the former style of essay might represent "traditional" art, and the latter "surrealist" art. Table of Contents: The Well-Tempered Map Projection | Antipodal Graphs | Measuring the Vertical City | Concavity and Human Settlement Patterns | Steiner Transformations | Analogue Clocks | Fad and Permanence in Human Systems | Topological Exploration in Geography | A Space for Thought | Chaos in Human Systems--The Heine-Borel Theorem
