Clifford-A Pickover

If we actually received messages from the stars, what would we do with them ? Who were the five strangest mathematicians in history ? What are the ten most interesting numbers ? Who is the Number King ? Jam-packed with thought-provoking mathematical mysteries, puzzles, and games - as well as the answers to all of the above questions - Wonders of Numbers will enchant even the most left-brained of readers. Hosted by the quirky Dr. Googol-who occasionally collaborates with Clifford Pickover - 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 the extraneous, convoluted history of it. Want to know about undulating numbers ? Turn to Chapter 52 and in just a few pages youll have a quick challenge. Interested in Fibonacci numbers ? Turn to Chapter 71 for the same. Peppered throughout with illustrations that clarify many of the problems, Wonders of Numbers also includes fascinating math gossip. How would we use numbers to communicate with aliens ? Check out Chapter 30. What are the five saddest mathematical scandals ? Youll find them in Chapter 34. Did you know that there is a Numerical Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder ? There is, and its in Chapter 45. Indeed, each chapter in Wonders of Numbers is a paradox and a mystery. From the beautiful formula of Indias most famous mathematician to the Leviathan number so big it makes a trillion look small, Dr. Googols witty, disarming, and straightforward approach to numbers will entice students, educators, and scientists alike to pick up a pencil and work a problem.
