    Lightbulb I Ching - Mathematical Analysis

    I'd like to enquire as to whether you know of any good books published before June 2014 on mathematical analysis of the I Ching?

    There is Richard Cook, Classical Chinese Combinatorics, first published 2006. I have no idea whether it's 'good' - I could see from the blurb that my ancient 'O' Level maths wouldn't allow me to follow it, so I never tried. There's a preview available here.

    What I have met until now is Numerology which has little if nothing to do with mathematic. Bradford Hatcher strikes the relation to the binary order of the hexagrams - but the binary system I would also not set alike with mathematic....
    In 2000 Alfred Huang authored 'Numerology of the I Ching' *) but I haven't found any math here either.

    Do You mean mathematic in relation to the hexarams ? Or mathematic in relation to the systemitification of the Trigrams ie The early- and Later Heaven arrangements ? Or the socalled 'He Tu' and 'Lo Shu' Diagrams

    Also, Paul Martyn Smith has written the "Sum of Things". A PDF can be downloaded here.

    fulfilling in old Yang,
    enjoying in young Yin,
    resting in old Yin.

    Maybe something like Chris Lofting's I Ching - Language of the Vague would fit the bill. Not much numerology and shed loads of XOR-ing.
