  • The Universe in Zero Wordsby Dana Mackenzie

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 19.95

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...
