Lly accessible In this book he offers a glimpse of the extraordinary vistas and bizarre universes opened up by contemporary mathemati. Asis of the whole of mathematics here There is then a section about complex numbers While complex numbers are explained in a reasonable way there is no complex analysis and the uaternions about complex numbers While complex numbers are explained in a reasonable way there is no complex analysis and the uaternions touched only very briefly This is a real pity and a missed opportunity as complex analysis is one of the most beautiful as well as useful branches of Mathematics This is ollowed by a really nice chapter titled beauty rom chaos which explains in a really beautiful and approachable way the concepts of Mindful Living with Aspergers Syndrome fractional dimensions chaotic dynamics and the amazingly beauty ofractals

Dr Devlin's television appearances and popular GUARDIAN column have revealed his remarkable giftor making difficult topics beautifu.

in modern higher mathematics in areas such as number theory topologymodern higher mathematics in areas such as number theory topology theoryThis book is really good at conveying the Circumstantial Evidence: Death, Life, and Justice in a Southern Town fascinating and sometime totally unexpected inter connectedness between apparently unrelatedields in mathematics Moreover the author s love or mathematics as something not just extremely useful to progress but inherently beautiful and un is visible and contagious What I like about this book is also that it goes into the math to a much significant extent than most popular science books yet managing to keep Things At A Level Sufficiently at a level sufficiently to understand The target audience is the competent maths amateur interested in the relatively recent say after WWII developments in higher mathematicsThe only issue I have is that the author in some cases gets so infuriatingly and tantalizingly close to the actual details of a major result and then it just closes with the statement the ull result can only be understood by specialists The resulting Down We Go: Living Into the Wild Ways of Jesus frustration is compounded by theact that the bibliographic references are very limited and unsatisfactory But this is a minor Reach for the Rainbow: Advanced Healing for Survivors of Sexual Abuse fault Let s get into the actual contents of this book after an initial introductory chapter about prime numbers and number theory there is a pretty nice chapter still at pretty introductory level unfortunately about axiomatic set theory and Cantor samous continuum problem To be honest I was expecting detail here Troubled Waters for example when talking about axiomatic set theories such as Zermelo Fraenkel the axiom of choice is not discussed and the axioms of the ZF theory itself are not discussed either Real pity as we are dealing with theoundational This lively and Comprehensive New Survey Sets new survey sets to show just how mistaken people who think they can't enjoy mathematics really are. .
