What Is Mathematics? An Elementary Approach to Ideas and Methods

For greater than thousand years a familiarity with arithmetic has been considered as an vital a part of the highbrow gear of each cultured individual. at the present time, regrettably, the normal position of arithmetic in schooling is in grave threat. The instructing and studying of arithmetic has degenerated into the world of rote memorization, the result of which ends up in passable formal skill yet doesn't result in actual figuring out or to larger highbrow independence. This new version of Richard Courant's and Herbert Robbins's vintage paintings seeks to deal with this challenge. Its target is to place the meaning again into arithmetic.

Written for rookies and students, for college students and academics, for philosophers and engineers, What is Mathematics?, moment Edition is a gleaming number of mathematical gemstones that gives an interesting and obtainable portrait of the mathematical international. masking every thing from normal numbers and the quantity procedure to geometrical structures and projective geometry, from topology and calculus to issues of precept and the Continuum speculation, this attention-grabbing survey permits readers to delve into arithmetic as an natural complete instead of an empty drill in challenge fixing. With chapters mostly autonomous of each other and sections that lead upward from simple to extra complex discussions, readers can simply decide and select components of specific curiosity with out impairing their realizing of next components.

Brought modern with a brand new bankruptcy through Ian Stewart, What is Mathematics?, moment Edition bargains new insights into contemporary mathematical advancements and describes proofs of the Four-Color Theorem and Fermat's final Theorem, difficulties that have been nonetheless open whilst Courant and Robbins wrote this masterpiece, yet ones that experience on the grounds that been solved.

Formal arithmetic is like spelling and grammar--a topic of the right kind software of neighborhood principles. significant arithmetic is like journalism--it tells an enticing tale. yet not like a few journalism, the tale needs to be real. the simplest arithmetic is like literature--it brings a narrative to lifestyles sooner than your eyes and consists of you in it, intellectually and emotionally. What is Mathematics is sort of a positive piece of literature--it opens a window onto the realm of arithmetic for somebody to view.
