Wonders of Numbers

Adventures in Mathematics, Mind, and Meaning

Clifford A. Pickover

Who were the five strangest mathematicians in history? What are the ten most interesting numbers? Jam-packed with thought-provoking mathematical mysteries, puzzles, and games, and peppered throughout with illustrations that clarify the problems, Wonders of Numbers focuses on creativity and the delight of discovery. Here is a potpourri of common and unusual number theory problems of varying difficulty--each presented in brief chapters that convey to readers the essence of the problem rather than its extraneous history.
