內容簡介

是誰發明了0?
為什麼一分鐘是60秒?
無限大有多大?
平行線在哪裡相交?
蝴蝶的翅膀是否真的能造成世界另一端的風暴?

在《50則非知不可的數學概念》中,湯尼‧克立教授用50篇簡單清楚的文章告訴您50個重要的數學概念,有古老、有現代、有理論、有實用、有日常、有難解,讓我們能輕鬆理解並且具體化周遭的世界。

從零、羅馬數字,經過π、質數和無限大,再到費馬最後定理以及黎曼猜想這樣的超級難題,本書告訴您許多學校沒教的事,包括虛數其實有非常實際的用途!微積分、統計學,以及代數現實上可以做些什麼?書內闡明了相對論、混沌理論、碎形、遺傳學和超空間這些偉大的理論,揭露出數獨、密碼解密、樂透和博奕、理財和複利背後未明說的推理,完美地解釋了這些常常令人怯步,但卻絕對必要的概念。最後,數學將變得再簡單不過!

Who invented zero?
Why 60 seconds in a minute? How big is infinity?
Where do parallel lines meet?

And can a butterfly's wings really cause a storm on the far side of the world? In 50 Maths Ideas You Really Need to Know, Professor Tony Crilly explains in 50 clear and concise essays the mathematical concepts - ancient and modern, theoretical and practical, everyday and esoteric - that allow us to understand and shape the world around us. Packed with diagrams, examples and anecdotes, this book is the perfect overview of this often daunting but always essential subject. For once, mathematics couldn't be simpler. Contents include: Origins of mathematics, from Egyptian fractions to Roman numerals; Pi and primes, Fibonacci numbers and the golden ratio; What calculus, statistics and algebra can actually do; The very real uses of imaginary numbers; The Big Ideas of relativity, Chaos theory, Fractals, Genetics and hyperspace; The reasoning behind Sudoku and code cracking, Lotteries and gambling, Money management and compound interest; Solving of Fermat's last theorem and the million-dollar question of the Riemann hypothesis.
