Abstract:

Discusses how the art of M.C. Escher helped mathematician Hendrik Lenstra overcome the Infinity Barrier. In 1956, Dutch artist Maurits C. Escher began a new work that challenged the laws of perspective to a point he found himself unable to pass, the so-called "infinity barrier". The challenges contained in the uncompleted work continued to be unsolved for over 50 years, until mathematician Hendrik Lenstra discovered a way to finally break through the apparently unbreakable wall.
