Introducing Infinity : A Graphic Guide, Paperback / softback Book

Introducing Infinity : A Graphic Guide Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Oliver Pugh

Part of the Graphic Guides series

Paperback / softback

Description

Infinity is a profoundly counter-intuitive and brain-twisting subject that has inspired some great thinkers - and provoked and shocked others. The ancient Greeks were so horrified by the implications of an endless number that they drowned the man who gave away the secret. And a German mathematician was driven mad by the repercussions of his discovery of transfinite numbers. Brian Clegg and Oliver Pugh's brilliant graphic tour of infinity features a cast of characters ranging from Archimedes and Pythagoras to al-Khwarizmi, Fibonacci, Galileo, Newton, Leibniz, Cantor, Venn, Goedel and Mandelbrot, and shows how infinity has challenged the finest minds of science and mathematics.

Prepare to enter a world of paradox.
