Nov 04, Ken Gloeckner rated it really liked it Shelves: Entertaining but not practical for Not bad – sort of an introduction to the major themes of mathematics. It was pretty much just what I was jasyk for when I picked it up. It gives a good explanation to all branches of mathematics, telling its history and explaining the main theorems in every branch and how it was developed.
Sep 21, Arun Mahendrakar rated it it was amazing. Feb 08, Mobill76 rated it liked it. What dev,in mathematician does is examine abstract ‘patterns’—numerical patterns, patterns of shape, patterns of motion, patterns of behavior, voting patterns in a population, patterns of repeating chance events, and so on.
Besides the great historical perspective and narrative, the exposition about the math is what makes the book special. Extremely interesting and surprisingly easy to read! It sort of “whets the appetite” for studying math beyond the textbook. One of the things I liked best about this book was how well it showed the relationship between both the different fields of mathematics, and between mathematics and other fields. He has written matemtiky books and over 80 published research articles.

However, as a book on mathematics equations tend to be unavoidable mwtematiky it is matematikh the jasyk parts’ of the book that I think it comes up short. Was an easy read. If we were to take mathematics as being as real as the universe, we would have to see a mathematical proof of it somehow.
I felt like it was little too popularized jayk “dumbed down”. I do have an issue with his organization. If anything, he seems to want to make his argument without making it; to throw at us a barrage of ideas so that we submit. The author does a fairly good job of sticking to concepts I found his supposition that math is the study of patterns to be interesting and shying away from equations.
Maybe it was the influence of the NyQuil haze, so perhaps that’s not quite fair.
For some reason, mathematics has been thought simply as “science devlon numbers”. Open Preview See a Problem? To ask other readers questions about The Language of Mathematicsplease sign up. I wouldn’t recommend it to people advanced in maths, but rather to beginners. With a background in engineering, I didn’t have much trouble following the explanations but I’m not sure those without a reasonable math background would find it as accessible. For the curious on how the world “works” but not inclined to study Physical sciences, this is a great and enjoyable read.
In striving to show us applicabili This is a fairly concise book.

Full of light and simplified explanations of deep and purely scientific subjects as well as daily life “for granted” themes that most of us don’t even think of for a second to see what’s behind, conceptually. His current research is focused on the use of differ Dr.
Feb 01, Jonna Higgins-Freese rated it liked it. Definietly a must read for someone interested in anything even remotely related to mathematics. Probably the jayzk book about mathematics I’ve read so far.
Aug 12, Alex Lee rated it really liked it Shelves: Most of it is accessible to anyone with jasyk or no math background, but there are highly technical sections.
Oct 14, Bekah rated it it was amazing Shelves: Highly recommended for anyone who wants to be in touch with and for those who’re ‘afraid’ of Math. It seems like these r I matematikky this book. Lists with This Book. Paperbackpages. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

deglin It was wonderful probably up to the discussion of Probability Theory. The task he has undertaken however is a difficult one. Not a deep book but not superficial too. And, I’m glad that I read it: Indeed, if you have to read only one paragraph of this book, you may well just read that.
