The Golden Ratio: The story of phi, the Extraordinary Number of Nature, Art and Beauty
Euclid defined what later became known as the Golden Ratio thus: A straight line is said to have been cut in extreme and mean ratio when, as the whole line is to the greater segment, so is the greater to the lesser.

June 06, 2004 EDT Doctor May Have Beauty's Number By Rafe Jones Ever think a number could be beautiful? From the bad luck of 13 to the holiness of 3, people have long ascribed mystical and abstract properties to numbers. One number in particular has been associated with beauty for nearly 2,000 years, and it's not a number you can count to: the so-called "golden section" is an irrational number approximately equal to 0.618. Dr. Stephen Marquardt, a former plastic surgeon, has used the golden section and some of its relatives to make a mask that he claims is the most beautiful shape a human face can have. Beauty Theory According to Dr. Marquardt, beauty is a mechanism to ensure humans recognize and are attracted to other humans. "Other animals recognize members of their own species and have a tremendous reaction when they do," he says, noting dogs' common reaction to other dogs. He adds that humans are highly visual creatures, so we use sight as our primary means of recognition. The most beautiful faces, he claims, are the ones that are the most easily recognizable as human. "Beauty is really just humanness," he says. Dr. Marquardt theorizes that we discern whether a face is obviously human by unconsciously comparing it to an ideal face that lurks in the unreachable recesses of the psyche. Since we have no direct access to this ideal "most human" face, we can't say precisely what it is; however, Dr. Marquardt claims he has captured the ideal face in his beauty mask. He says, "The mask radiates, it advertises and screams: 'human, human, human.' "

Show that the golden ratio (in radical form) satisfies the polynomial equation x^2 - x - 1 = 0. (Note: the symbol ^ means "raised to the power"; so x^2 means x raised to the 2nd power, or x squared.) Use algebra to rearrange the equation for g in the previous question to show that
      g^2 = g + 1 (that is, g^2 can be replaced by g+1 whenever convenient)

    Fibonacci numbers and the Golden Ratio
    The ancient Greek geometers believed that a rectangle with sides in the ratio was the most pleasing to the eye. They called any such rectangle a Golden Rectangle , and so became known as the Golden Ratio . Naturally, the Greeks defined the Golden Ratio geometrically instead of writing it as a number. Definition 792 A Golden Rectangle is a rectangle R having the following property. If a square on one of the shorter sides of R is removed from R , then the remaining rectangle is similar to R In other words, if a square on one side of a Golden Rectangle is removed from the rectangle, the rectangle that remains is also golden!

Solving, we find , demonstrating that the numerical and geometric definitions are the same. The default window in which 2-dimensional graphics are drawn in the Mathematica software package is a Golden Rectangle.

    The Golden Ratio in Art Now let's go back and try to discover the Golden Ratio in art. We will concentrate on the works of Leonardo da Vinci, as he was not only a great artist but also a genius when it came to mathematics and invention. Your task is to find at least one of the following da Vinci paintings on the Internet. Make sure that you find the entire painting and not just part of it. The best way to do this is to use a search engine. I suggest either Google or Lycos . Type the name of the painting you wish to find into the search engine and see what you can come up with. Once you find the painting, return to this site for instructions on how to find the Golden Ratio. If you wish, you may borrow the image you find by right-clicking on the image and selecting "Save Image As...". Then save it to the desktop. This way you have the image on the computer you are using. If you have the capability (a color printer) it might be a good idea to print the image out as well, but this is not completely necessary.

    The Golden Ratio
    Introduction to The Golden Ratio
    Since the early Greeks, the ratio of length to width of approximatly 1.618 has been identified as being the most asthetically pleasing. This ratio is used in architecture, art and, along with Fibonaccis numbers, appears frequently in nature. It also, as a number, posseses very interesting qualities. It is my intention to highlight and explain the key points of this number.
    A Definition of the Golden Ratio
    As mentioned before the Golden Ratio is approximatly 1.618 (click here for a more accurate approximation). Here is a definition explaining how the ratio was found.
    Divide a line into two sections such that the ratio of the whole line over the larger section is equal to the larger section over the smaller section. The point on the line that divides the two sections is called the Divine Cut. The Golden Ratio is 1/a=a/b. The Golden Ratio is often refered to by the greek letter Phi ) and sometimes tau ), refering to the cut that is made in the definition. On this website I will take Phi to stand for the Golden Ratio.

    50. The Golden Ratio In Art
    THE golden ratio IN THE ARTS. Throughout the centuries, artists andmusicians pursuing aesthetics - have turned to natures own
    Throughout the centuries, artists and musicians - pursuing aesthetics - have turned to natures own tactics and emulated the golden ratio in thier own creations. There is evidence of this from ancient times - for example this aztec decoration. The space between the two heads is Phi times the width of the heads. The renaissance was a period of renewed interest and advancement in the arts. Many artists which have become 'household names' are from this era, and it turns out that some of the most famous artists of all time had a very mathematical approach to thier work. In Michaelangelo's renowned life size sculpture 'David', the naval is at the golden section of the figure. Leonardo da Vinci was a mathematician and a scientist as much as he was an artist: along with other techniques he frequently used the divine proportion in his paintings. The example on the left is a more modern one - 'Post' by Picasso - using a golden mean gauge we can see that the lines are spaced to the golden proportion. Another interesting example of its application is in the De Stjil art movement of the 20 th century: these apparantly random black lines and blocks of primary colour are in fact mostly constructed to the golden section. The illustration on the right is from a painting by Mondrian, and again uses the same gauge to illustrate our point.

    Golden Ratio and Architecture The Golden Rectangle is a unique and a very important shape in mathematics. The Golden Rectangle appears in nature, music, and is also often used in art and architecture. The special property of the Golden Rectangle is that the ratio of its length to the width equals to approximately 1.618:
    The Golden Rectangle has been discovered, admired and used since ancient times. The reason for the golden rectangle's charm is that it is considered to be one of the most pleasing shapes to look at. Our human eye perceives the golden rectangle as an especially beautiful geometric form.
    Example 1: Ancient Egyptians, Mesopotamians and Greeks were aware of the beauty of the Golden Rectangle and used it to create many different buildings. One of the most famous and beautiful buildings, built in ancient Greece on the Acropolis, is called the Parthenon. It was created about 2500 years ago.
    The Parthenon - Ancient Greek Temple.Built in 5th century B.C. by three architects: Iktinus, Callicrates and Phidias.(The symbol for golden ratio is the Greek letter , named after the sculptor Phidias)
    Golden Ratio appears in several places in the design of the Parthenon. The dimensions of the front of the temple form a perfect golden rectangle, as shown on the diagram above. Also, the spaces between the columns are in proportion to the golden ratio. The golden rectangles can be seen in almost all exterior dimensions of this great masterpiece.

    General Photography Resource, Articles and Reviews for the Amateur Photographer
    Photography e-Book Chapter 16 - The Golden Ratio Loosely related to the rule of thirds is the Golden Ratio also referenced to the Golden Rectangle. This is, as far as I am able to decipher from a layperson's perspective, a mathematical look at human aesthetics. Mathematicians seem to love to apply numbers to what seemingly could or should not have numbers applied to them but what do I know, as there are many geniuses out there seeking a single mathematical formula that would explain the nature of the universe and of life itself. Mathematicians have even come up with a formula for the human decision-making process, better known as Game Theory or the Zero Sum Gain. The Golden Ratio has purportedly been a profound influence since ancient times with Greeks utilizing the Golden Ratio in their buildings such as the Parthenon at the Temple of Athena on the Acropolis. During the Renaissance when European artists rediscovered the styles of the ancient world, the Golden Ratio was utilized for their sculptures and paintings. Leonardo da Vinci being the most prominent Renaissance artist known to have used the Golden Ratio for great works such as the Mona Lisa. The more traditional physical shape of the Golden Ratio is the golden rectangle. This rectangle is comprised of a square and one-half of another square that is the same dimension together, as seen below. It can be seen as another example of the rule of thirds as the rectangle can be comprised of three equally sized smaller rectangles. Technically, the golden rectangle is comprised of two parts that follow the Fibonacci sequence.

    A New Solution for the Parthenon's GM
    The Golden Mean is a ratio which has fascinated generation after generation, and culture after culture. It can be expressed succinctly in the ratio of the number "1" to the irrational "l.618034... ", but it has meant so many things to so many people, that a basic investigation of what might is the "Golden Mean Phenomenon" seems in order. So much has been written over the centuries on the Mean, both fanciful imaginings and recondite mathematicizations, that a review of the literature on the subject would be oversize, and probably lose the focus of the problem. This purpose of this paper is to state in the simplest form problems which relate to the Golden Mean, and pursue a variety of directions which aim to explain the origin of this remarkable ratio and its ultimate meaning in the world of mind and matter. The French architect LeCorbusier noted that the human body when measured from foot to navel and then again from navel to top of head, showed average numbers very near to the Golden Ratio. He extended this to height compared with arm-span, and designed doorways consonant with these numbers. But of course much of this was based in averages rather than exact numbers, and so falls into the general area of esthetic design, rather than mathematical proportion. However studies have shown that the patterns of tree- branching adhere to the GM proportion, although again not exactly, while the dendritic cracking in certain metallic alloys which occurs as very low temperatures is basically GM based. In an entirely different area, Duckworth at Princeton found in the early l940's a GM relationship in the length of paragraphs in Vergil's Aeneid, with the figures becoming ever more accurate as larger samples were taken. Lendvai has demonstrated that Bartok used the GM ratio extensively in composing music, the question remaining whether an artist as an educated person uses the GM ratio consciously as a framework for his work, or unconsciously because of its ubiquitous appearance in the world around us, something we sense by living in a GM proportioned world.
