  • The Universe in Zero Wordsby Dana Mackenzie

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 19.95

    Most popular books about science, and even about mathematics, tiptoe around equations as if they were something to be hidden from the reader's tender eyes. Dana Mackenzie starts from the opposite premise: He celebrates equations. No history of art would be complete without pictures. Why, then, should a history of mathematics--the universal language... more...

  • Taming the Unknownby Victor J. Katz; Karen Hunger Parshall

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 49.50

    What is algebra? For some, it is an abstract language of x?s and y?s. For mathematics majors and professional mathematicians, it is a world of axiomatically defined constructs like groups, rings, and fields. Taming the Unknown considers how these two seemingly different types of algebra evolved and how they relate. Victor Katz and Karen Parshall... more...
