Borges and mathematics : lectures at Malba by Guillermo Martínez( )

31 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in Spanish and English and held by 1,314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Borges and Mathematics is a short book of essays that explores the scientific thinking of the Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986). Around half of the book consists of two "lectures" focused on mathematics. The rest of the book reflects on the relationship between literature, artistic creation, physics, and mathematics more generally. Written in a way that will be accessible even to those "who can only count to ten," the book presents a bravura demonstration of the intricate links between the worlds of sciences and arts, and it is a thought provoking call to dialog for readers from both traditions. The author, Guillermo Martinez, is both a recognized writer, whose murder mystery The Oxford Murders has been translated into thirty-five languages, and a PhD in mathematics. Contents: Borges and Mathematics: First Lecture; Borges and Mathematics: Second Lecture; The Golem and Artificial Intelligence; The Short Story as Logical System; A Margin Too Narrow; Euclid, or the Aesthetics of Mathematical Reasoning; Solutions and Disillusions; The Pythagorean Twins; The Music of Chance (Interview with Gregory Chaikin); Literature and Rationality; Who's Afraid of the Big Bad One?; A Small, Small God; God's Sinkhole. This book was originally published in Spanish as Borges y la matematica (2003). It has been translated with generous support from the Latino Cultural Center at Purdue University"--

An up-and-coming young writer who has little in common with Kloster, a literary giant whose disturbing crime novels dominate the bestseller lists. However, they have both, at one time, employed the secretarial services of the alluring Luciana B. Out of the past, Luciana makes a desperate plea to the young writer. She thinks that Kloster is slowly killing off everyone close to her--can he help before her grandmother and younger sister are murdered? While the narrator suspects her misfortunes have driven her mad, Kloster has a powerful motive; and eerie parallels surface between the murders in Kloster's books and the real-life deaths surrounding Luciana. As the body count multiplies, the question arises: Can words really kill?

When an Argentine math student discovers the smothered body of his landlady, conventional wisdom points to a family member with the most prosaic of motives. But then renowned logician Arthur Seldom, author of a book on the mathematics of serial killers, tells of a strange note left in his mailbox. The note indicates that the murder is the first in a series linked by a mysterious pattern. Each new death is accompanied by a different mathematical shape. It seems that the serial killer can be stopped only if someone can crack the next symbol in the sequence. The leading Oxford logician and the math graduate team up on a quest to crack the cryptic clues

Los crímenes de Oxford by Guillermo Martínez( Book )

42 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los crímenes de Oxford conjuga los sombríos hospitales ingleses con los arrebatos de pasión y las sectas antiguas de matemáticos con el arte de los viejos magos. Una novela policíaca de trama aparentemente clásica que, en el sorprendente desenlace, se revela como un magistral acto de prestidigitación. Una fascinante indagación detectivesca con Oxford como escenario. Un estudiante de matemáticas realiza un viaje a Oxford con fines académicos. Además de conocer a algunos de sus maestros en esta ciencia, las emociones se alborotan cuando se produce un asesinato en la casa donde se aloja. Se desata así un misterio para el que las matemáticas son, más que una disciplina teórica, la clave para su investigación y desarrollo. La serie de Oxford es un artefacto literario que combina una altísima calidad literaria con una trama capaz de atrapar a miles de lectores
