In line with a well-received path designed for philosophy scholars, this publication is an off-the-cuff creation to mathematical considering. The paintings can be worthwhile not just for philosophers keen on mathematical questions but in addition for critical beginner mathematicians with an curiosity within the "frontiers" in addition to the principles of arithmetic. In what could be termed a sampler of the self-discipline, Konrad Jacobs discusses an strangely wide selection of subject matters, together with such goods of up to date curiosity as knot concept, optimization concept, and dynamical platforms. utilizing Euclidean geometry and algebra to introduce the mathematical mode of proposal, the writer then turns to contemporary advancements. within the procedure he bargains what he calls a "Smithsonian of mathematical showpieces": the 5 Platonic Solids, the Mbius Strip, the Cantor Discontinuum, the Peano Curve, Reidemeister's Knot desk, the airplane adorns, Alexander's Horned Sphere, and Antoine's Necklace.
