The Art of Mathematician Herbert Busemann

German-American mathematician Herbert Busemann (1905-1994) specialized in convex and differential geometry and was the author of Busemann's Theorem. After retiring from USC as a professor emeritus in 1970, Busemann spent the rest of his life painting in Santa Ynez, California. Fittingly, his paintings were also geometrical and executed with mathematical precision.
