Circles disturbed : the interplay of mathematics and narrative by
Apostolos K Doxiadēs(
Book
)
10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 298 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. Stories and theorems are, in a sense, the natural languages of these two worldsstories representing the way we act and interact, and theorems giving us pure thought, distilled from the hustle and bustle of reality. Yet, though the voices of stories and theorems seem totally different, they share profound connections and similarities. A book unlike any other, Circles Disturbed delves into topics such as the way in which historical and biographical narratives shape our understanding of mathematics and mathematicians, the development of 'myths of origins' in mathematics, the structure and importance of mathematical dreams, the role of storytelling in the formation of mathematical intuitions, the ways mathematics helps us organize the way we think about narrative structure, and much more."Jacket

Fermat's last theorem by
Barry Mazur(
Visual
)
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 62 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 groundbreaking 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
