Circles disturbed : the interplay of mathematics and narrative by Apostolos K Doxiadēs( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 1,777 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 worlds--stories 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

Une conjecture mathématique irrésolue depuis deux siècles, un oncle mathématicien rendu fou par la recherche de la solution, un neveu qui enquête, dans ce polar des nombres premiers, avec l'ambiguïté juvénile d'un héros nabokovien : Apostolos Doxiadis a réussi un roman parfaitement original et attachant que Georges Steiner et Olivier Sacks ont trouvé irrésistible, et que les communautés mathématique et littéraire anglo-saxonnes ont salué comme un exploit qui force l'admiration de deux mondes peu habitués à se rencontrer. L'éditeur anglais d'Apostolos Doxiadis offre une récompense d'un million de dollars à toute personne qui résoudra la conjecture de Goldbach !

Three brothers. One mafia curse. A gripping mafia thriller, at once a folk tale-like adventure story and moral fable Ben Frank has blood on his hands. He knows that he has killed a man in a bar-room brawl. He knows that as an Italian immigrant in turn-of-the-century New York, life is tough. But what he doesn't know is that the victim's father, a Mafia boss, will settle a curse, a 'maledizione, ' on Frank's family; that the shoemaker's three sons will each die in their forty-second year. Following the varying fortunes of the shoemaker's sons - Al, Nick and Leo Frank - as well as their nemesis, a gangster by the name of 'Terranova, ' Three Little Pigs grows into a dazzling meditation on chance, destiny, choice and their consequences. At once a gripping thriller and an investigation of character and fate, this is a revenge tragedy written by a master at the very peak of his powers. Can the brothers beat the curse?
