The Loom of God: Tapestries of Mathematics and Mysticism

From the mysterious cult of Pythagoras to the extraordinary mechanics of Stonehenge to the “gargoyles” and fractals on today’s desktops, arithmetic has continuously been a strong, even divine strength on the planet. In a full of life, clever synthesis of math, mysticism, and technology fiction, Clifford Pickover explains the everlasting magic of numbers.

Good Math: A Geek's Guide to the Beauty of Numbers, Logic, and Computation (Pragmatic Programmers)

Mathematics is beautiful--and it may be enjoyable and interesting in addition to sensible. sturdy Math is your consultant to a few of the main exciting subject matters from thousand years of arithmetic: from Egyptian fractions to Turing machines; from the genuine that means of numbers to evidence timber, staff symmetry, and mechanical computation. If you've ever puzzled what lay past the proofs you struggled to accomplish in highschool geometry, or what limits the services of desktop in your table, this is often the ebook for you.

Why do Roman numerals persist? How will we comprehend that a few infinities are higher than others? and the way do we recognize for sure a software will ever end? during this fast moving journey of contemporary and not-so-modern math, desktop scientist Mark Chu-Carroll explores many of the maximum breakthroughs and disappointments of greater than thousand years of mathematical idea. there's pleasure and wonder in arithmetic, and in additional than dozen essays drawn from his well known "Good Math" web publication, you'll locate innovations, proofs, and examples which are usually miraculous, counterintuitive, or simply simple weird.

Mark starts his trip with the fundamentals of numbers, with an pleasing journey in the course of the integers and the traditional, rational, irrational, and transcendental numbers. The voyage maintains with a glance at a number of the oddest numbers in arithmetic, together with 0, the golden ratio, imaginary numbers, Roman numerals, and Egyptian and carrying on with fractions. After a deep dive into sleek good judgment, together with an creation to linear good judgment and the logic-savvy Prolog language, the journey concludes with a journey of recent set idea and the advances and paradoxes of contemporary mechanical computing.

in case your highschool or university math classes left you greedy for the interior that means in the back of the numbers, Mark's ebook will either entertain and enlighten you.

Everything and More: A Compact History of Infinity

"A gripping advisor to the trendy taming of the endless. "—The long island occasions. With a brand new creation via Neal Stephenson. Is infinity a legitimate mathematical estate or a meaningless abstraction? David Foster Wallace brings his highbrow ambition and attribute bravura sort to the tale of ways mathematicians have struggled to appreciate the endless, from the traditional Greeks to the nineteenth-century mathematical genius Georg Cantor's counterintuitive discovery that there has been a couple of type of infinity.
