By Ian Stewart
Understanding that the main interesting math is not taught in class, Professor Ian Stewart has spent years filling his cupboard with fascinating mathematical video games, puzzles, tales, and factoids meant for the adventurous brain. This e-book finds the main exhilarating oddities from Professor Stewart’s mythical cabinet.
Inside, you can find hidden gem stones of common sense, geometry, and probability—like the way to extract a cherry from a cocktail glass (harder than you think), a pop-up dodecahedron, and the genuine for the reason that you can’t divide something by means of 0. Scattered between those are keys to Fermat’s final theorem, the Poincaré conjecture, chaos conception, and the P=NP challenge (you’ll win 1000000 money in the event you clear up it). You by no means recognize what enigmas you’ll locate within the Stewart cupboard, yet they’re certain to be smart, mind-expanding, and delightfully enjoyable.
