Mårten's GEB Page

Here I keep some links related to the book
Gödel, Escher, Bach - an Eternal Golden Braid
by Douglas Hofstadter.

(The image to the left is from the front cover of the book)

These days, I have very little time to maintain this page, but I keep it online anyway hoping that not too many links grow stale. This may also be evident in the time I answer mails about it, please excuse me for this. Sooner or later things get done :-)

If you have any suggestions of links that would suit this page, I would of course be very happy to hear about it, for instance by mail!
Many thanks to the contributors so far.
