Buy, dip in, wallow." -IAN STEWART, NEW SCIENTIST"...a delightful look at numbers and their roles in everything from language to flowers to the imagination." -SCIENCE NEWS"...a fun and fascinating tour of numerical topics and concepts. It will have readers contemplating ideas they might never have thought were understandable or even possible." -WISCONSIN BOOKWATCH"This popularization of number theory looks like another classic." -LIBRARY JOURNAL, The Book of Numbers lets readers of all levels of mathematical sophistication (or lack thereof) understand the origins, patterns, and interrelationships of different numbers. Whether it is a visualization of the Catalan numbers or an explanation of how the Fibonacci numbers occur in nature, there is something in here to delight everyone. The diagrams and pictures, many of which are in color, make this book particularly appealing and fun. A few of the discussions may be confusing to those who are not adept mathematicians; those who are may be irked that certain facts are mentioned without an accompanying proof. Nonetheless, The Book of Numbers will succeed in infecting any reader with an enthusiasm for numbers., 13983, Probability & Statistics, 226699, Applied, 13884, Mathematics, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13961, Number Systems, 13884, Mathematics, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13963, Number Theory, 226698, Pure Mathematics, 13884, Mathematics, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 468218, Mathematics, 491542, Algebra & Trigonometry, 491544, Calculus, 491546, Geometry, 491548, Statistics, 468216, Science & Mathematics, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books

In THE BOOK OF NUMBERS, two famous mathematicians fascinated by beautiful and intriguing number patterns share their insights and discoveries with each other and with readers. John Conway is the showman, master of mathematical games and flamboyant presentations; Richard Guy is the encyclopedist, always on top of problems waiting to be solved. Together they show us why patterns and properties of numbers have captivated mathematicians and non-mathematicians alike for centuries. THE BOOK OF NUMBERS features Conway and Guy´s favorite stories about all the kinds of numbers any of us is likely to encounter, and many others besides. ´´Our aim,´´ the authors write, ´´is to bring to the inquisitive reader. . .an explanation of the many ways the word ´number´ is used.´´ They explore patterns that emerge in arithmetic, algebra, and geometry, describe these pattern´ relevance both inside and outside mathematics, and introduce the strange worlds of complex, transcendental, and surreal numbers. This unique book brings together facts, pictures and stories about numbers in a way that no one but an extraordinarily talented pair of mathematician/writers could do.
