Math's unlimited secrets unfold in this paperback edition of the bestselling TheMath Book. Starting millions of years ago with ancient "ant odometers" and moving through time to our modern-day pursuit for brand-new dimensions, respected polymath Clifford Pickover covers 250 milestones in mathematical history. Amongst the many concepts readers will encounter as they dip into this welcoming anthology: cicada-generated prime numbers, magic squares, and the butterfly impact. Each subject exists in an extravagantly illustrated spread, including solutions and real-world applications of the theorems.
