Abstract

Our closing issue of 2016 has a distinctly mathematical flavor. Unlike other theme issues, this was not planned but just turned out that way – it was ‘contingent’. The word is borrowed from Hermann Weyl, a towering figure of early 20th century mathematics and our featured personality. He was much more than a mathematician, bringing concepts like beauty and intuition into the mathematical realm. It is a matter of some embarrassment that we at Resonance did not cover (and back cover!) him for 21 years!
