Beautiful mathematics by Martin J Erickson( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematical ideas have an aesthetic appeal that can be appreciated by anyone who has the time and dedication to investigate. Mathematical topics are presented in the categories of words, images, formulas, theorems, proofs, solutions and unsolved problems. Readers will discover exciting mathematics topics from complex numbers to arithmetic progressions, from Alcuin's sequence to the zeta function, and from hypercubes to infinity squared. Who should read this book? There is something new for any mathematically minded person. High school and college students will find motivation for their mathematical studies. Professional mathematicians will find fresh examples of mathematical beauty to pass along to others. Within each chapter, the topics require progressively more prerequisite knowledge. An appendix gives background definitions and theorems, while another gives challenging exercises (with solutions)
Mathematics by A. J Crilly( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This series is designed to let renowned experts address the 20 most fundamental and frequently asked questions of a major branch of science or philosophy. Here, Crilly answers: What is maths for? Where do numbers come from? Why are primes the atoms of maths? What are the strangest numbers? Are imaginary numbers real? How big is infinity? Where do parallel lines meet? What is the maths of the universe? Are statistics lies? Can maths guarantee riches? Is there a formula for everything? Why are three dimensions not enough? Can a butterfly's wings really cause a hurricane? Can we create an unbreakable code? Is maths beauty? Can maths predict the future? What shape is the universe? What is symmetry? Is maths true? Is there anything left to solve?

Wahrheit, Beweis, Unendlichkeit : eine mathematische Reise zu den vielseitigen Auswirkungen der Unendlichkeit by John Stillwell( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In dem Buch erkundet der preisgekrönte Autor John Stillwell die Konsequenzen, die sich ergeben, wenn man die Unendlichkeit akzeptiert, und diese Konsequenzen sind vielseitig und überraschend. Der Leser benötigt nur wenig über die Schulmathematik hinausgehendes Hintergrundwissen; es reicht die Bereitschaft, sich mit ungewohnten Ideen auseinanderzusetzen. Stillwell führt den Leser sanft in die technischen Details von Mengenlehre und Logik ein, indem jedes Kapitel einem einzigen Gedankengang folgt, der mit einer natürlichen mathematischen Frage beginnt und dann anhand einer Abfolge von historischen Antworten nachvollzogen wird. Auf diese Weise zeigt der Autor, wie jede Antwort ihrerseits zu neuen Fragen führt, aus denen wiederum neue Begriffe und Sätze entstehen. Jedes Kapitel endet mit einem Abschnitt "Historischer Hintergrund", der das Thema in den größeren Zusammenhang der Mathematik und ihrer Geschichte einordnet

Mathématiques by A. J Crilly( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die großen Fragen behandeln grundlegende Probleme und Konzepte in Wissenschaft und Philosophie, die Forscher und Denker seit jeher umtreiben. Anspruch der ambitionierten Reihe ist es, die Antworten auf diese Fragen zu präsentieren und damit die wichtigsten Gedanken der Menschheit in einzigartigen Übersichten zu bündeln. Im vorliegenden Band Mathematik, der einen Bogen spannt vom Beginn des Zählens und den idealen Platonischen Körpern bis zur Chaostheorie und dem Fermat'schen Theorem, setzt sich Tony Crilly mit jenen 20 Fragen auseinander, die das Herz der Mathematik und unseres Verständnisses
