Description

From the author of "Journey Through Genius" comes a new exploration of mathematics. This excursion takes the reader through mathematical concepts and issues - delving into everything from Russell's Paradox to the wonders of the Fibonacci series. The chapters are arranged alphabetically by subject, and offer a rare profile of the conundrums, disputes, proofs and solutions that have shaped the world of mathematics today. Chapters are designed to fit together with elementary ideas appearing relatively early.
