1 Kaplan, Robert; Kaplan, Ellen The Art of the Infinite: the Pleasures of Mathematics
019514743X / 9780195147438; NEW - The Kaplans take us on a witty, literate and accessible tour of the world of mathematics. This book looks at infinity, in its countless guises, as a touchstone for understanding mathematical thinking. Tracing a path rom Pythagoras, whose great Theorem led inexorably to a discovery that his followers tried to keep secret (the existence of irrational numbers) ; through Descartes and Leibniz; to the brilliant, haunted Georg Cantor, who proved that infinity can come in different sizes, the Kaplans show how the attempt to grasp the ungraspable embodies the essence of mathematics. This volume shows us someof the ways that Man has grappled with All, and reveals mathematics as one of the most exhilirating expressions of the human imagination. 324 pages including an index and appendix. Binding is quarter cloth. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
