Mathematics : a very short introduction by
Timothy Gowers(
Book
)
19 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mathematics is a subject we are all exposed to in our daily lives, but one which many of us fear. In this introduction, Timothy Gowers elucidates the most fundamental differences, which are primarily philosophical, between advanced mathematics and what we learn at school, so that one emerges with a clearer understanding of such paradoxicalsounding concepts as 'infinity', 'curved space', and 'imaginary numbers'. From basic ideas, through to philosophical queries, to common sociological questions about the mathematical community, this book unravels some of the mysteries of space and numbers."Jacket

Timothy Gowers(

)
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The aim of this book is to explain, carefully but not technically, the differences between advanced, researchlevel mathematics, and the sort of mathematics we learn at school. The most fundamental differences are philosophical, and readers of this book will emerge with a clearer understanding of paradoxicalsounding concepts such as infinity, curved space, and imaginary numbers. The first few chapters are about general aspects of mathematical thought. These are followed by discussions of more specific topics, and the book closes with a chapter answering common sociological questions about the mathematical community (such as "Is it true that mathematicians burn out at the age of 25?")"Provided by publisher
