Mathematics

Mathematics is a subject we are all exposed to in our daily lives, but one that many of us fear. Timothy Gowers’s entertaining overview of the topic explains the differences between what we learn at school and advanced mathematics, and helps the math phobic emerge with a clearer understanding of such paradoxical-sounding concepts as “infinity,” “curved space,” and “imaginary numbers.” From basic ideas to philosophical queries to common sociological questions about the mathematical community, this book unravels the mysteries of space and numbers.

A matemática é algo a que todos estamos expostos nas nossas vidas quotidianas, mas que muitos temem Nesta introdução eminentemente acessível e divertida, Timothy Gowers explica as diferenças fundamentais, essencialmente filosóficas, entre a matemática avançada e aquela que aprendemos na escola Ao fazê-lo, proporciona-nos uma compreensão clara de conceitos só aparentemente paradoxais, como «infinito», «espaço curvo» e «números imaginários» De ideias básicas a questões sociológicas sobre a comunidade matemática, passando por explorações filosóficas, este livro esclarece de forma cativante alguns mistérios do espaço e dos números

Matemáticas: una breve introducción

Apesar de estar rodeados en nuestra vida cotidiana de una constante manifestación de las matemáticas, su conocimiento como ciencia despierta algunas resistencias. Con la finalidad de hacerlas más accesibles y comprensibles, TIMOTHY GOWERS nos muestra, a partir de distintos planteamientos filosóficos, cuáles son las diferencias más notables entre las matemáticas más avanzadas y las que aprendemos en la escuela. En el prólogo de MATEMÁTICAS. UNA INTRODUCCIÓN, su autor indica que el principal cometido del libro es «que la gente aprenda a pensar en abstracto, porque al hacerlo desaparecen muchas dificultades filosóficas», lo que supone comprender con mayor claridad conceptos como «infinito», «espacio curvo» o «números racionales» e «irracionales». El libro concluye con un capítulo dedicado a quienes se dedican a las matemáticas, planteando cuestiones filosóficas y sociológicas, cuyas respuestas nos sirven para desentrañar algunos de los misterios del espacio y de los números.
