The Language of Mathematics
Making the Invisible VisibleeBook - 1998
Keith Devlin reveals the role mathematics plays in our eternal quest to understand who we are and the world we live in. More than just the study of numbers, mathematics provides us with the eyes to recognise and describe the hidden patterns of life. Supported with a variety of examples including - what keeps a jumbo jet in the air, how we forecast the weather and predict changes in the stock market, Devlin shows how mathematics can be used to describe and explain the world about us.
