Scholar has the Midas touch

His every paper is golden.

In a recent post, Goran said

A recent book by Alexei Stakhov bears witness to the importance of the golden mean in art and science and discusses the work of El Naschie at length. The work has just appeared in World Scientific with the title The Mathematics of Harmony, if I am not mistaken.

Stackhov, according to Google Scholar, has written seventeen papers. Nine of the seventeen are in Chaos, Solitons and Fractals. Every single one of the seventeen papers contains the words "golden section". He has a Web site whose purpose appears to be to promote world peace by means of (1 + sqrt 5)/2.

Dr. Stakhov seems like a kindly old fellow, and I hope he brings about world peace through numerology, but I don't fancy his odds. It's about as likely that his book will repair El Naschie's reputation.
