Light and Dark
This book brings together a wide range of topics that would normally be found in separate texts classified as astronomy, zoology, technology, history, art or physics. The connection is the theme of light and dark, which may alternate either in time or in space. In the time domain, slow variations often determine when animals mate and sleep, patterns defined in seconds provide navigational information for sailors and flashes of almost incomprehensible brevity convey messages and data around the world. Spatial patterns in black and white define the area on which chess players compete and enable the computer at the supermarket checkout to distinguish baked beans from jam tarts.
This book is intended to provide entertainment as well as instruction, and is in no way a comprehensive textbook for formal courses. For some more detailed accounts of particular topics you should refer to the suggestions for further reading.
