The SYMMETRION was
founded in 1991 in the name of the International Symmetry Foundation.
Its founders were G. Darvas and D. Nagy.
The present director of the Symmetrion is György Darvas.
The name SYMMETRION© * was created on a Greek basis,
and refers partly to the origin of the term symmetry [symmetria], partly
to "the home" of symmetry studies (symmetrology).
Currently the SYMMETRION is an independent, international
institute. It promotes interdisciplinary and holistic studies bridging
different disciplines, science and art, and different cultures. It promotes
also to make the public acquainted with the related recent achievements. The Symmetrion is financed through the Symmetrology Foundation.
The SYMMETRION initiates, organises, co-ordinates, and executes
symmetry related projects in accordance with the above aims.
The SYMMETRION publishes the journal SYMMETRY: Culture and Science.
The SYMMETRION maintains a specialised symmetry related
library, the SYMMETROTHECA. . The SYMMETROTHECA is a special collection of books, periodical
article reprints, artworks, catalogues, CD-ROM, DVD and video-tapes. Symmetry
related publications are spread in various disciplinary journals and
other type publications, collections of papers. This is a unique place
where a lot of them can be found in one library. Most of the items in
the collection of the SYMMETROTHECA were received as a courtesy of the
authors, in most cases members of the International Symmetry Association.
Your contributions are welcome to the SYMMETROTHECA: please, donate and
send a copy of your symmetry related works to enrich the collection.
The Symmetrion was financed by the International Symmetry Foundation 1991-2005.
