Mathematics: A Very Short Introduction

Timothy Gowers

Very Short Introductions

  • A concise explanation of the differences between advanced mathematics and what we learn at school
  • Offers the reader an insight into such seemingly paradoxical concepts as infinity, the square root of minus one, and curved space
  • Tackles the sociological questions that arise regarding the mathematical community - e.g. 'Do mathematicians burn out at the age of 25?'
  • Clear and non-technical language throughout
