Most widely held works by Barry Mazur
Circles disturbed the interplay of mathematics and narrative by Apostolos K Doxiadēs ( )
9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Circles Disturbed brings together important thinkers in mathematics, history, and philosophy to explore the relationship between mathematics and narrative. The book's title recalls the last words of the great Greek mathematician Archimedes before he was slain by a Roman soldier--"Don't disturb my circles"--words that seem to refer to two radically different concerns: that of the practical person living in the concrete world of reality, and that of the theoretician lost in a world of abstraction
Imagining numbers : (particularly the square root of minus fifteen) by Barry Mazur ( Book )
19 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A tour of the creative side of mathematics describes the first use of imaginary numbers in sixteenth-century Italy and the subsequent two-hundred-year effort to perfect the process, citing the words of key Renaissance thinkers

Ces nombres qui n'existent pas by Barry Mazur ( Book )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in French and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'auteur fait un parallèle entre l'atmosphère imaginative propre à la poésie et l'imagination à l'oeuvre en mathématiques. Il s'appuie sur l'exemple des nombres imaginaires (les nombres complexes, comme la racine carrée de nombres négatifs) pour nous faire vivre le voyage imaginaire qui a conduit les mathématiciens de la Renaissance italienne à envisager ces nombres
Fermat's last theorem ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In June 1993 Andrew Wiles announced that he had proved Fermat's last theorem. The proof was finally completed in November 1994, when Wiles and Richard Taylor filled a technical gap that had arisen. In this lecture, Barry Mazur outlines the main ideas in this ground-breaking work. Mazur sets the context for the problem, then focuses on three concepts and the key role they play in Wiles' work: elliptic curves, Galois representations, and modular forms. The lecture is preceded by an introduction by Mazur in March 1995, bringing the topic up to date
