Edge of the Universe by Deanna Haunsperger
Book DescriptionMath Horizons celebrates the people and ideas that are mathematics. Containing the editors' selection from the first ten years of the magazine's existence, this volume features exquisite expositions of mathematics accessible at the level of an undergraduate or advanced school student. Broad and appealing, the coverage also includes fiction with mathematical themes; literary, theatrical, and cinematic criticism; humour; history; and social history. Mathematics is shown as a human endeavour through biographies and interviews of mathematicians and users of mathematics including artists, writers, and scientists. The puzzles, games, and activities throughout make it a valuable resource for student maths clubs. Though especially appealing to undergraduate math majors, academics in mathematics, and school teachers and their students, anyone with an interest in mathematics will delight in engaging this volume. Like the magazine from which it is drawn, this collection is an eclectic and wide-ranging look at the culture of mathematics.
