Professor Ian Stewart explains new and unsuspected structures and regularities in the world around us, patterns so simple that anybody can see them once they know where to look. Potentially, the universe could exist in any of a huge symmetric system of possible states, but actually it must select one of them. the important point is that the tiniest departure from symmetry in the cause can lead to a total loss of symmetry in the resulting effect – and there are always tiny departures.

Stewart trots through the history of major mathematical discoveries: Kepler discovers that the planets move not in circles but in ellipses.
