The great unknown : seven journeys to the frontiers of science by Marcus Du Sautoy( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A captivating journey to the outer frontiers of human knowledge by the popular presenter of Netflix's The Story of Math Ever since the dawn of civilization we have been driven by a desire to know--to understand the physical world and the laws of nature. But are there limits to human knowledge? This tantalizing question has inspired scientists and functioned as a spur to innovation. Now, Marcus du Sautoy invites us to join him on a journey to the outer reaches of human understanding as there are still lots of deep mysteries waiting to be solved. Are some things beyond the predictive powers of science? Or are those challenges simply the next big discovery waiting to happen? Du Sautoy takes us into the minds of science's greatest innovators and reveals the fraught circumstances of their discoveries. He reminds us that major breakthroughs were often ridiculed at the time of their discovery. And he carries us on a whirlwind tour of seven "Edges" of knowledge - chaos theory, matter, quantum physics, the universe, time, consciousness and infinity --grounding a deeply personal exploration in simple concepts like the roll of dice, the notes of a cello, or how a clock measures time"--
The story of 1( Visual )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A humor-inflected history of the of the number one, covering military applications in ancient Rome, the measurement of distances in India, and the decimal system created by Leibnitz
The number mysteries : a mathematical odyssey through everyday life by Marcus Du Sautoy( Book )

39 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every time we download music, take a flight across the Atlantic or talk on our cell phones, we are relying on great mathematical inventions. In The Number Mysteries, one of our generations foremost mathematicians Marcus du Sautoy offers a playful and accessible examination of numbers and how, despite efforts of the greatest minds, the most fundamental puzzles of nature remain unsolved. Du Sautoy tells about the quest to predict the future from the flight of asteroids to an impending storm, from bending a ball like Beckham to forecasting population growth. He brings to life the beauty behind five mathematical puzzles that have contributed to our understanding of the world around us and have helped develop the technology to cope with it. With loads of games to play and puzzles to solve, this is a math book for everyone"--Provided by publisher
The story of math : how numbers explain our universe and reveal unseen worlds( Visual )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discs 1-2. The story of maths. Without mathematics, there would be no physics, chemistry, or astronomy. No architecture. No commerce. No accurate maps or precise time-keeping, therefore no dependable long-range navigation. No geometry, statistics, or calculations of any kind. No computers. In this four-part series, University of Oxford Professor Marcus du Sautoy takes viewers on a journey through the ages and around the world to trace the development of mathematics and see how math has shaped human civilization

Author and Oxford University professor Marcus du Sautoy sets out to solve mathematical mysteries in an engaging and accessible BBC documentary. Du Sautoy travels from Chartres Cathedral to Grand Central Station in search of the mysterious hidden code that can unlock the very laws of the universe
Zeta functions of groups and rings by Marcus Du Sautoy( Book )

23 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zeta functions have been a powerful tool in mathematics over the last two centuries. This book considers a new class of non-commutative zeta functions which encode the structure of the subgroup lattice in infinite groups. The book explores the analytic behaviour of these functions together with an investigation of functional equations. Many important examples of zeta functions are calculated and recorded providing an important data base of explicit examples and methods for calculation
New horizons in pro-p groups by Marcus Du Sautoy( Book )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The impetus for current research in pro-p groups comes from four main directions: from new applications in number theory, which continue to be a source of deep and challenging problems; from the traditional problem of classifying finite p-groups; from questions arising in infinite group theory; and finally, from the younger subject of profinite group theory. A correspondingly diverse range of mathematical techniques is being successfully applied, leading to new results and pointing to exciting new directions of research. In this work important theoretical developments are carefully presented by leading mathematicians in the field, bringing the reader to the cutting edge of current research. With a systematic emphasis on the construction and examination of many classes of examples, the book presents a clear picture of the rich universe of pro-p groups, in its unity and diversity. Thirty open problems are discussed in the appendix. For graduate students and researchers in group theory, number theory, and algebra, this work will be an indispensable reference text and a rich source of promising avenues for further exploration
Precision : the measure of all things( Visual )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since our ancestors first counted the passing seasons, humans have used measurement to help master and understand our world. Hosted by Oxford mathematician Marcus du Sautoy, this program shows how measurements have shaped the course of history, science, and civilization; and changed every aspect of our daily lives
Analytic pro-p groups by John D Dixon( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonardo da Vinci's famous diagram of the perfect human body, drawn in the 1480s, defines our species like no other drawing before or since. It is also full of surprises. More recently, the Double Helix represents a scientific breakthrough that has been voted the most significant of the 20th century, more important than penicillin or the first working computer
TEDTalks : Marcus du Sautoy - Symmetry, Reality's Riddle( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world turns on symmetry, from the spin of subatomic particles to the dizzying beauty of an arabesque. But there's more to symmetry than meets the eye. In this TEDTalk, Oxford mathematician Marcus du Sautoy offers a glimpse of the invisible numbers that marry all symmetrical objects and explains the patterns in both a Japanese temple and in the famed Alhambra. A gifted science communicator--The Observer calls him a man who knows how to bring mathematics to everyday life--du Sautoy is the author of The Music of the Primes and Symmetry: A Journey into the Patterns of Nature.
