Mathematics and Scientific Representation: Summary and Chapter 1

More than a year ago I posted a fairly vague description of a book project on the ways in which mathematics contributes to the success of science. I have made some progress on bringing together this material and thought it would be useful to post a summary of the chapters of the book along with an introductory chapter where I give an overview of the main conclusions of the book. Hopefully this is useful to other people working on similar projects. Critical suggestions for what is missing or who else is doing similar stuff is of course welcome!

Update (Feb. 17, 2011): The link to chapter 1 has been replaced with the final version. The link to the summary has been removed.
