Descripción

¿Qué matemático elaboró un concepto crucial la noche antes de morir en un duelo? ¿Quién financió su carrera de Matemáticas y Medicina a través del juego y el ajedrez? ¿Quién aprendió matemáticas de su fondo de pantalla?

Ian Stewart presenta las vidas extraordinarias y los sorprendentes descubrimientos de veinticinco de los mejores matemáticos de la historia, desde Arquímedes y Liu Hui hasta Benoit Mandelbrot y William Thurston. Sus sujetos son personas inspiradoras que han hecho contribuciones cruciales a las Matemáticas. Incluye las historias de los genios redescubiertos Srinivasa Ramanujan y Emmy Noether, junto a las imponentes figuras de Muhammad al-Khwarizmi (inventor del algoritmo), Pierre de Fermat, Isaac Newton, Carl Friedrich Gauss, Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky, Bernhard Reimann (precursor de Einstein), Henri Poincaré, Ada Lovelace (posiblemente la primera programadora de computadoras), Kurt Gödel y Alan Turing.

Los vívidos relatos de Ian Stewart son fascinantes en sí mismos y, tomados en conjunto, se unen en una apasionante historia de pasos clave en el desarrollo de las Matemáticas.
