Seller Comments:

8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. First edition, 268 pp. John Casti reveals the remarkable origins of some of the most monumental mathematical discoveries of the last century, and sheds some light on how these revolutionary ideas have reshaped our lives, in this follow-up to his Five Golden Rules. Casti infuses his sometimes intimidating subjects with an infectious energy, illustrating his ideas not only with equations and graphs but with such diverse sources as the work of William Blake, the Greek legend of Gordius, and Paul Revere's lantern signals. From explaining how knot theory contributes to the development of new drugs to revealing how astronomers can predict planetary motions with the Hopf Bifurcation Theorem, Casti offers an invigorating glimpse into the world of 20th-century mathematics and the secrets it has unraveled. In protective mylar cover.
