A Most Elegant Equation

A Most Elegant Equation

A Most Elegant Equation

An award-winning science writer introduces us to mathematics using the extraordinary equation that unites five of mathematics' most important numbers Bertrand Russell wrote that mathematics can exalt "as surely as poetry." This is especially true of one equation: ei(pi) + 1 = 0, the brainchild of Leonhard Euler, the Mozart of mathematics. More than two centuries after Euler's death, it is still regarded as a conceptual diamond of unsurpassed beauty. Called Euler's identity or God's equation, it includes just five numbers but represents an astonishing revelation of hidden connections. It ties together everything from basic arithmetic to compound interest, the circumference of a circle, trigonometry, calculus, and even infinity. In David Stipp's hands, Euler's identity formula becomes a contemplative stroll through the glories of mathematics. The result is an ode to this magical field.

Euler S Gem

Euler S Gem

How a simple equation reshaped mathematics Leonhard Euler’s polyhedron formula describes the structure of many objects—from soccer balls and gemstones to Buckminster Fuller’s buildings and giant all-carbon molecules. Yet Euler’s theorem is so simple it can be explained to a child. From ancient Greek geometry to today’s cutting-edge research, Euler’s Gem celebrates the discovery of Euler’s beloved polyhedron formula and its far-reaching impact on topology, the study of shapes. Using wonderful examples and numerous illustrations, David Richeson presents this mathematical idea’s many elegant and unexpected applications, such as showing why there is always some windless spot on earth, how to measure the acreage of a tree farm by counting trees, and how many crayons are needed to color any map. Filled with a who’s who of brilliant mathematicians who questioned, refined, and contributed to a remarkable theorem’s development, Euler’s Gem will fascinate every mathematics enthusiast. This paperback edition contains a new preface by the author.

Dr Euler S Fabulous Formula

Dr Euler S Fabulous Formula

In the mid-eighteenth century, Swiss-born mathematician Leonhard Euler developed a formula so innovative and complex that it continues to inspire research, discussion, and even the occasional limerick. Dr. Euler's Fabulous Formula shares the fascinating story of this groundbreaking formula—long regarded as the gold standard for mathematical beauty—and shows why it still lies at the heart of complex number theory. In some ways a sequel to Nahin's An Imaginary Tale, this book examines the many applications of complex numbers alongside intriguing stories from the history of mathematics. Dr. Euler's Fabulous Formula is accessible to any reader familiar with calculus and differential equations, and promises to inspire mathematicians for years to come.

The 7 Most Important Equations For Your Retirement

The 800 years of scientific breakthroughs that will help salvageyour retirement plans Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy, Biology; every field has itsintellectual giants who made breakthrough discoveries that changedthe course of history. What about the topic of retirement planning?Is it a science? Or is retirement income planning just a collectionof rules-of-thumb, financial products and sales pitches? In The7 Most Important Equations for Your Retirement...And the StoriesBehind Them Moshe Milevsky argues that twenty first centuryretirement income planning is indeed a science and has itsfoundations in the work of great sages who made conceptual andcontroversial breakthroughs over the last eight centuries. In the book Milevsky highlights the work of sevenscholars—summarized by seven equations—who shaped allmodern retirement calculations. He tells the stories of LeonardoFibonnaci the Italian businessman; Benjamin Gompertz the gentlemanactuary; Edmund Halley the astronomer; Irving Fisher the stockjock; Paul Samuelson the economic guru; Solomon Heubner theinsurance and marketing visionary, and Andrey Kolmogorov theRussian mathematical genius—all giants in their respectivefields who collectively laid the foundations for modern retirementincome planning. With baby boomers starting to hit retirement age, planning forretirement income has become a hot topic across the country Author Moshe Milevsky is an internationally-respected financialexpert with the knowledge you need to assess whether you are readyto retire or not Presents an entertaining, informative narrative approach tofinancial planning Understanding the ideas behind these seven foundationequations—which Moshe Milevsky explains in a manner thateveryone can appreciate—will help baby boomers better preparefor retirement.

The God Equation

The God Equation

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • The epic story of the greatest quest in all of science—the holy grail of physics that would explain the creation of the universe—from renowned theoretical physicist and author of The Future of the Mind and The Future of Humanity When Newton discovered the law of gravity, he unified the rules governing the heavens and the Earth. Since then, physicists have been placing new forces into ever-grander theories. But perhaps the ultimate challenge is achieving a monumental synthesis of the two remaining theories—relativity and the quantum theory. This would be the crowning achievement of science, a profound merging of all the forces of nature into one beautiful, magnificent equation to unlock the deepest mysteries in science: What happened before the Big Bang? What lies on the other side of a black hole? Are there other universes and dimensions? Is time travel possible? Why are we here? Kaku also explains the intense controversy swirling around this theory, with Nobel laureates taking opposite sides on this vital question. It is a captivating, gripping story; what’s at stake is nothing less than our conception of the universe. Written with Kaku’s trademark enthusiasm and clarity, this epic and engaging journey is the story of The God Equation.
