This is the first of three volumes originating from a series of lectures in mathematics for high school students, given by professors of Kyoto University in Japan. The main purpose of the lectures was the show students the beauty of mathematics using material that is accessible to people with little preliminary knowledge. A chapter on topology contains three lectures on the Euler characteristics, vortices created by  Read more...
