Concepito per principianti e scienziati, per studenti e insegnanti, per filosofi e ingegneri, Che cos’è la matematica? offre una illustrazione brillante e accessibile del mondo matematico. Scritto in ordine sistematico, il libro può essere letto anche per gruppi di capitoli a seconda delle esigenze conoscitive e didattiche, e in ogni caso l’esposizione gradua sempre opportunamente le difficoltà.
In questa edizione interamente riveduta, Ian Stewart ha aggiunto commenti e integrazioni in vari luoghi del testo e un intero nuovo capitolo dedicato ai recenti sviluppi della matematica.

This is the ideal book to read during the last years at school, or early in an undergraduate degree. School maths is often about understanding mathematical concepts intuitively via rote learning, repetition and visualization. This book teaches you how mathematical knowledge is arrived at by looking
"The difficulty is that it is easy to prove a problem is easy, but hard to prove that it is hard!" I'm probably not unique in that I made it through a lot of math without ever really understanding what I was doing, just flipping equations around until an answer poured out. I had a trigonometry profes Leggi tutto
Wow, that was absolutely beautiful! Thanks for the heads-up, Alex! I really, really wish I'd have had this book back as a senior or junior in high school; I'd have been able to plan out my math classes early on much better (why on earth did I take Dynamics and Bifurcations?!?! and how did I avoid ta Leggi tutto
در دوران خستگی و دلزدگی از کنکور و سوالات مسخرهٔ مشتق و انتگرالش، دوستداشتیترین کتابم بود. در سیستمی که دو سال آخر مدرسه رو کلا از هر معنایی تهی کرده، کمکی بود برام تا سرکی بکشم به مبانی ریاضیات و با مفاهیم جالبی آشنا بشم و مطمئن بشم که ریاضی، به همین مسخرگی و آبدوخیاریای که معلمهای مدرسه و ریا Leggi tutto

This is a book which changed my life. I originally read it when I was 17, and it was the book which confirmed to me that I wanted to study mathematics at university. Re-reading it now, it is a clear and inspiring look at a wide range of interesting mathematics, presenting an elementary view of how i Leggi tutto
A very good philosophically inclined text offering lots of inticing tidbits about lots of topics. Lots of context on varied topics, including differencial calculus, topology, numbers, geoometry, etc. Definitely worth a read for anyone willing to either brush up on stuff or review or just have some c Leggi tutto
In another life, many many moons ago, I received this book as a gift from an English math professor I met on a plane. It was not a completely haphazard encounter: we were both on our way back from the Hong Kong IMO. I was a contestant (not a really successful one), and he was an elderly member of th Leggi tutto
This is one of the best high school level extensions in mathematics. Originally called - Mathematics for Lori - it was written for his daughter.
