Numbers by Denis Guedj
Book DescriptionThis volume describes, in words and with artworks, the basic principles of numbers - arithmetic, whole numbers, natural numbers and the concepts of zero and infinity. It examines: how old numbers are and how they were developed; who invented algebra, geometry and calculus; how these ideas affect our daily lives; and the ways in which numbers have been used in art, music and other disciplines.

On June 24, 1792, two large travelling coaches left the Tuileries, one for Dunkirk and the other for Barcelona. Their passengers, Pierre Mechain and Jean-Baptiste Delambre, were astronomers charged by the French revolutionary government with devising one universal unit of measure.
