18 Unconventional Essays on the Nature of Mathematics
ISBN: 9780387257174 / Angielski / Miękka / 352 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. This book comes from the Internet. Browsing the Web, I stumbled on philosophers, cognitive scientists, sociologists, computer scientists, even mathematicians saying original, provocative things about mathematics. And many of these people had probably never heard of each other So I have collected them here. This way, they can read each other s work. I also bring back a few provocative oldies that deserve publicity. The authors are philosophers, mathematicians, a cognitive scientist, an anthropologist, a computer scientist, and a couple of sociologists. (Among the mathematicians are two...

Coincidences, Chaos, and All That Math Jazz: Making Light of Weighty Ideas
ISBN: 9780393329315 / Angielski / Miękka / 288 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. A book for the eternally curious, Coincidences fuses a professor s understanding of the hidden mathematical skeleton of the universe with the sensibility of a standup comedian, making life s big questions accessible and compelling. Each chapter opens with a surprising insight not a mathematic formula, but a common observation. From there, the authors leapfrog over math and anecdote toward profound ideas about nature, art, and music. Coincidences is a book for lovers of puzzles and posers of outlandish questions, lapsed math aficionados and the formulaphobic alike."

Innumeracy: Mathematical Illiteracy and Its Consequences
ISBN: 9780809058402 / Angielski / Miękka / 208 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Why do even welleducated people understand so little about mathematics? And what are the costs of our innumeracy? John Allen Paulos, in his celebrated bestseller first published in 1988, argues that our inability to deal rationally with very large numbers and the probabilities associated with them results in misinformed governmental policies, confused personal decisions, and an increased susceptibility to pseudoscience of all kinds. Innumeracy lets us know what we're missing, and how we can do something about it. Sprinkling his discussion of numbers and probabilities with quirky...

These are the terse notes for a graduate seminar which I conducted at Harvard during the Fall of 1963. By and large my audience was acquainted with the standard material in bundle theory and algebraic topology and I therefore set out directly to develop the theory of characteristic classes in both the standard cohomology theory and Ktheory. Since 1963 great strides have been made in the study of K(X), notably by Adams in a series of papers in Topology. Several more modern accounts of the subject are available. In particular the notes of Atiyah, IINotes on Ktheoryll not only start more...

But few subjects provoke hotter emotionsand inspire more love and hatredthan mathematics. And although math is frequently idealized as floating above the messiness of human life, its story is nothing if not human; often, it is all too human. Loving and Hating Mathematics is about the hidden human, emotional, and social forces that shape mathematics and affect the experiences of students and mathematicians.

Raoul Bott: Collected Papers: Volume 4: Mathematics Related to Physics
ISBN: 9780817636487 / Angielski / Twarda / 488 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. This paper is a greatly expanded account of the preliminary material that appeared in Atiyah & Bott (1980). Part ofthe reason for the long delay between that paper and this present version was that new viewpoints emerged that added further interest to the topic and enabled us to provide proofs for what had earlier been conjectures. The length of this paper is due to our desire to present the several different aspects of the problem. We feel that this is justified because the main interest lies not so much in the actual applications as in the methods employed and the interaction between...

La congettura di Siracusa (meglio nota come la congettura di Collatz) e una delle tante congetture matematiche ancora in attesa di dimostrazione. In questo saggio e affrontata evidenziandone alcune caratteristiche. Da una di queste prende spunto un procedimento che conduce a un teorema la cui dimostrazione la risolve in maniera completa e definitiva. In pochi passi si esce dal labirinto, si giunge al mare da altissime quote e si doma il pazzo ascensore di un altissimo grattacielo. La soluzione della congettura di Siracusa svela la magica armonia dei numeri dispari e apre nuovi orizzonti alla...

The conjecture of Syracuse
ISBN: 9788869490484 / Angielski / Miękka / 100 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. The conjecture of Syracuse (better known as the Collatz conjecture) is one of the many mathematical conjectures still waiting for proof. In this essay it is addressed by highlighting some of its features. From one of these features takes its cue a process that leads to a theorem whose proof solves the conjecture in a complete and definitive way. With few steps we exit the maze, we reach sea level from high altitudes and we tame the crazy lift of a very high skyscraper. The solution of the conjecture of Syracuse reveals the magical harmony of odd numbers and opens new horizons to the number...

Fields Medallists' Lectures, 2nd Edition

Although the Fields Medal does not have the same public recognition as the Nobel Prizes, they share a similar intellectual standing. It is restricted to one field  that of mathematics  and an age limit of 40 has become an accepted tradition. Mathematics has in the main been interpreted as pure mathematics, and this is not so unreasonable since major contributions in some applied areas can be (and have been) recognized with Nobel Prizes. A list of Fields Medallists and their contributions provides a bird'seye view of mathematics over the past 60 years. It highlights the areas in which, at...
