In spite of common perceptions, design and mathematics have much in common in the way they are practiced and in their results. Understanding the interplay between design and mathematics could therefore, lead to mutual benefits to both disciplines. This paper introduces this subject and focuses on one benefit that could arise from a tight transfer of knowledge between design and mathematics that bootstraps progress in both disciplines.
