The Poincaré conjecture : in search of the shape of the universe by Donal O'Shea( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Conceived in 1904, the Poincaré conjecture, a puzzle that speaks to the possible shape of the universe and lies at the heart of modern topology and geometry, has resisted attempts by generations of mathematicians to prove or to disprove it. Despite a million-dollar prize for a solution, Russian mathematician Grigory Perelman, posted his solution on the Internet instead of publishing it in a peer-reviewed journal. This book "tells the story of the fascinating personalities, institutions, and scholarship behind the centuries of mathematics that have led to Perelman's dramatic proof." The author also chronicles dramatic events at the 2006 International Congress of Mathematicians in Madrid, where Perelman was awarded a Fields Medal for his solution, which he declined
Éminence : Cardinal Richelieu and the rise of France by Jean-Vincent Blanchard( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Chief minister to King Louis XIII, Cardinal Richelieu was the architect of a new France in the seventeenth century, and the force behind the nation's rise as a European power. Among the first statesmen to clearly understand the necessity of a balance of powers, he was one of the early realist politicians, practicing in the wake of Machiavelli. Forging a nation-state amid the swirl of unruly nobles, widespread corruption, wars of religion, and an ambitious Habsburg empire, Richelieu mastered the politics of absolute power. At times cruel and ruthless, he was always devoted to creating a lasting central authority vested in the monarchy, a power essential to France's position on the European stage for the next two centuries. Jean-Vincent Blanchard's insightful new biography offers a rich portrait of a fascinating man and his era, and gives us a keener understanding of the dark arts of politics.--From publisher description
