Pythagoras' revenge : a mathematical mystery by
Arturo Sangalli(
)
26 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The celebrated mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras left no writings. But what if he had and the manuscript had never been found? Where would it be located? Two mathematicians, one American, one British, set out, unbeknownst to each other, to find the missing manuscript

The importance of being fuzzy : and other insights from the border between math and computers by
Arturo Sangalli(
Book
)
13 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in English and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"How has computer science changed mathematical thinking? In this first ever comprehensive survey of the subject for popular science readers, Arturo Sangalli explains how computers have brought a new practicality to mathematics and mathematical applications. By using fuzzy logic and related concepts, programmers have been able to sidestep the traditional and often cumbersome search for perfect mathematical solutions to embrace instead solutions that are "good enough." If mathematicians want their work to be relevant to the problems of the modern world, Sangalli shows, they must increasingly recognize "the importance of being fuzzy."" "Sangalli argues that even though "fuzziness" and related concepts are often compared to human thinking, they can be understood only through mathematics  but the math he uses in the book is straightforward and easy to grasp. Of equal appeal to specialists and the general reader, The Importance of Being Fuzzy reveals how computer science is changing both the nature of mathematical practice and the shape of the world around us."Jacket

Éloge du flou : aux frontières des mathématiques et de l'intelligence artificielle by
Arturo Sangalli(
)
11 editions published between 2000 and 2018 in French and English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'auteur montre, avec une aisance fascinante, comment les réseaux de neurones, les algorithmes génétiques et la logique floue sont en train de changer la façon de faire la science et de comprendre le monde. Un livre difficile à surpasser. John L. Casti, Santa Fe Institute Quiconque veut savoir quelles seront les grandes orientations du monde de l'informatique d'ici trente ans, sinon à plus courte échéance, doit lire cet ouvrage tout à fait fascinant. Doron Zeibelger, Temple University Cet ouvrage présente, d'une manière abordable pour quiconque a fréquenté l'université et suivi un cours de mathématiques, plusieurs sujets jusqu'à maintenant inaccessibles à un public cultivé. GianCarlo Rota, auteur de Indiscrete Thoughts Combinant les points de vue philosophique et scientifique, cet ouvrage explore les nouvelles avenues sur lesquelles s'engage la science informatique. S'appuyant sur la description de nombreux cas, il présente les principes des trois grandes techniques de calcul mises en œuvre dans un domaine où sont impliquées à la fois les mathématiques, l'informatique et l'intelligence artificielle : • les réseaux de neurones : assemblages d'unités de calcul simples pouvant acquérir des connaissances à la manière du cerveau, par l'exemple ou par la pratique ; • les algorithmes génétiques : ensembles de processus imitant les phénomènes biologiques de l'évolution, dans lesquels le hasard joue un rôle prépondérant ; • la logique floue : méthode mathématique qui permet de transmettre aux machines la souplesse du langage et du raisonnement humains pour traiter des données imprécises

Quantum philosophy : understanding and interpreting contemporary science by
Roland Omnès(
)
7 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Roland Omnes takes us from the academies of ancient Greece to the laboratories of modern science as he seeks to do no less than rebuild the foundations of the philosophy of knowledge. One of the world's leading quantum physicists, Omnes reviews the history and recent development of mathematics, logic, and the physical sciences to show that current work in quantum theory offers new answers to questions that have puzzled philosophers for centuries: Is the world ultimately intelligible? Are all events caused? Do objects have definitive locations? Omnes addresses these profound questions with vigorous arguments and clear, colorful writing, aiming not just to advance scholarship but to enlighten readers with no background in science or philosophy."Jacket

The curious history of relativity : how Einstein's theory of gravity was lost and found again by
Jean Eisenstaedt(
Book
)
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Almost one hundred years after general relativity replaced Newton's theory of gravitation, The Curious History of Relativity tells the story of the events surrounding general relativity and the techniques employed by Einstein and the relativists to construct, develop, and understand his almost impenetrable theory. Jean Eisenstaedt, one of the world's leading experts on the subject, also discusses the theory's place in the evolution of twentiethcentury physics. He describes the main stages in the development of general relativity: its beginnings, its strange crossing of the desert during Einstein's lifetime while under heated criticism, and its new life from the 1960s on, when it became vital to the understanding of black holes and the observation of exotic objects, and, eventually, to the discovery of the accelerating universe."Jacket

The mathematical century : the 30 greatest problems of the last 100 years by
Piergiorgio Odifreddi(
Book
)
6 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The twentieth century was a time of unprecedented development in mathematics, as well as in all sciences: more theorems were proved and results found in a hundred years than in all of previous history.  In The Mathematical Century, Piergiorgio Odifreddi distills this unwieldy mass of knowledge into a fascinating and authoritative overview of the subject. He concentrates on thirty highlights of pure and applied mathematics.  Each tells the story of an exciting problem, from its historical origins to its modern solution, in lively prose free of technical details.  "This book will be treasured not only by students and their teachers but also by all those who seek to make sense of the elusive macrocosm of twentiethcentury mathematics."Jacket
