(A)phantasia and severely deficient autobiographical memory: Scientific and personal perspectives
The story of how I became aware of my own lack of mental imagery and the accompanying deficit in my episodic memory is recounted, and how I have sought scientific understanding of these conditions and how they have affected my life. Expand
Mathematical Objects, Definitions, Diagrams
This chapter maintains that, being problem solving by the analytic method, mathematics is about objects which are hypotheses human beings make to solve mathematical problems by that method. Expand
Listening to the Music of Reason: Nicolas Bourbaki and the Phenomenology of the Mathematical Experience
Jean Dieudonne, the spokesman of the group of French mathematicians named Bourbaki, called mathematics the music of reason. This metaphor invites a phenomenological account of the affective , inExpand
Method Versus Content
After the realization of the 1958 curriculum in the mid 1950s a period of peace and quiet seemed to have begun in mathematics education. After all, this curriculum was unique since it was supportedExpand
Multiple wave scattering by quasiperiodic structures
Understanding the phenomenon of wave scattering by random media is a ubiquitous problem that has instigated extensive research in the field. This thesis focuses on wave scattering by quasiperiodicExpand
Techniques for Capturing Critical Thinking in the Creation and Composition of Advanced Mathematical Knowledge
This paper proposes four techniques for capturing mathematicians’ critical thinking whilst creating or writing up advanced mathematics: plan writing, concept mapping, activity transcripts, and annotated drafts and transcripts. Expand
