What do Bach's compositions, Rubik's Cube, the way we choose our mates, and the physics of subatomic particles have in common? All are governed by the laws of symmetry, which elegantly unify scientific and artistic principles.

Mario Livio (born 1945) is an Israeli-American astrophysicist and an author of works that popularize science and mathematics. From 1991 till 2015 he was an astrophysicist at the Space Telescope Science Institute, which operates the Hubble Space Telescope. Livio has popularized astronomy and mathematics through books, lectures, magazine articles, and radio and television appearances. He has appeared on radio and TV outlets including PBS, NPR and CBS to discuss scientific and mathematical subjects.

Livio traces the development in mathematics over the broad strokes of history. It is a history of brilliant minds solving progressively more difficult algebraic equations. With the quintic equations, however, no solution could be found for over 300 years. Abel and Galois came at the problem from a completely different line of thinking, and their revolution which has come to manifest itself in modern group theory changed the way we understand the world.

The list of people who have contributed directly and indirectly to this book could in itself fill more than a few pages. Here I will only men-tion those without whose help I would have had a hard time completing the manuscript. I am grateful to Freeman Dyson, Ronen Plesser, Nathan Seiberg, Steven Weinberg, and Ed Witten for conversations on the role of symmetry in physics.

Dr. Livio is also the author of six popular science books, including The Golden Ratio (an International Bestseller for which he received the Peano Prize and the International Pythagoras Prize) and Is God a Mathematician? (which was the basis for the 2016 Emmy-nominated TV NOVA program The Great Math Mystery). Livio's book Brilliant Blunders was a national bestseller in the . and was selected by The Washington Post as one of the "Best Books of the Year.

Mario Livio's new book tells the story of the elusive quintic equation and how, from the mysteries of this unsolvable puzzle, group theory was born

Mario Livio's new book tells the story of the elusive quintic equation and how, from the mysteries of this unsolvable puzzle, group theory was born. This branch of mathematics describes and defines symmetry, and at the core of the book is a strong sense of just how much of our behaviour and appreciation of the world around us depends on our ability to perceive symmetrical proportions. Livio is very much present in the writing, an instantly likeable narrator whose passion for his subject is contagious.

In this book Mario Livio tells, in his typically clear and gripping style, the story of the quintic (5th degree) equation, which resisted solution till the early 19th century, in spite of enormous efforts by many gifted and well-known mathematicians

Symmetry is the concept that bridges the worlds of art and science, a concept that spans the world of theoretical physics and the everyday world we see around us.
