22 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 992 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 paradoxical-sounding 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

Mathematics is a subject we are all exposed to in our daily lives, but one that many of us fear. Timothy Gowers's entertaining overview of the topic explains the differences between what we learn at school and advanced mathematics, and helps the math phobic emerge with a clearer understanding of such paradoxical-sounding concepts as “infinity, “curved space, and “imaginary numbers. From basic ideas to philosophical queries to common sociological questions about the mathematical community, this book unravels the mysteries of space and numbers

The Importance of Mathematics is a lucid, dynamic presentation of the deep and important question of the relevance of mathematics to society, delivered by one of the best mathematicians of the modern age. Timothy Gowers is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambirdge (UK) and a recipient of the prestigious Fields Medal. Professor Gowers gave the Keynote Address at the historic Millennium Meeting of the Clay Mathematics Institute -- the very same meeting at which the Millennium Prize Problems were announced. Gowers spoke about the relevance of mathematics to diverse applications citing examples in computer science, finance, and engineering. His theme underscores the unity of different apparently diverse sub-fields of mathematics. His exposition is exceptionally clear and easy to follow, making mathematics accessible to non-experts

Mathematics A Very Short Introduction by Timothy Gowers( Recording )

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, research-level 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 paradoxical-sounding 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
