If You Think Calculus Is Difficult, Read This Baby,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Fermat's Enigma: The Epic Quest to Solve the World's Greatest Mathematical Problem (Taschenbuch)
A mind boggling trip into the world of number theory and the path that Andrew Wiles incessantly followed for EIGHT whole years in order to solve a 360 year old puzzle: There are no solutions to Pythagora's theorem for powers higher than 2! Sounds simple? Wait until you see the demonstration.
However, one does not have to understand elliptical equations, modular forms, the Taniyama-Shimura conjecture, or Kolyvagin-Flach method to enjoy this captivating exploration of superior mathematics. I personally have had a love hate relationship to mathematics, thanks to "kind" teachers, but now I'm over it. If you feel the same, this book might be the cure or at least the begining in understanding the beauty of the mathematical universe.
