Praise for "The Poincare Conjecture"


"A layman's guide to this mathematical odyssey is long overdue, and this one will appeal to math whizzes and interested novices alike."--"Discover "magazine


"O'Shea shows that, just like chasing 'sensual passions, ' the single-minded, relentless pursuit of proof can be a creative process."--"Chicago Tribune


""O'Shea tells the whole story in this book, neatly interweaving his main theme with the history of ideas about our planet and universe. There is good coverage of all the main personalities involved, each one set in the social and academic context of his time."--"New York Sun"

There is good coverage of all the main personalities involved, each one set in the social and academic context of his time."--"New York Sun" "Donal O'Shea has written a truly marvelous book. Not only does he explain the long-unsolved, beautiful Poincare conjecture, he also makes clear how the Russian mathematician Grigory Perelman finally solved it. Around this drama O'Shea weaves a tapestry of elementary topology and astonishing concepts, such as the Ricci flow, that have contributed to Perelman's brilliant achievement. One can't read "The Poincare Conjecture" without an overwhelming awe at the infinite depths and richness of a mathematical realm not made by us."--Martin Gardner, author of "The Annotated Alice" and "Aha! Insight"
"The history of the Poincare conjecture is the story of one of the most important areas of modern mathematics. Donal O'Shea tells that story in a delightful and informative way--the concepts, the issues, and the people who made everything happen. I recommend it highly."--Keith Devlin, Stanford University, author of "The Millennium Problems"
"In "The Poincare Conjecture," Mr. O'Shea tells the fascinating story of this mathematical mystery and its solution bythe eccentric Mr. Perelman . . . Mr. O'Shea does a good job of explaining the mathematics involved in solving the conjecture . . . [He] avoids cliche (we're spared the usual reference to coffee cups turning into doughnuts as an explanation of how surfaces might stretch without closing holes), and he tries to keep things lively."--Amir D. Aczel, "The Wall Street Journal"

Synopsis

This is an unsolved mystery, a reclusive Russian genius and a race to win a million dollars ...For over a century, the Poincare Conjecture was one of the world's most confounding puzzles. Formulated by a French mathematician, Henri Poincare, over a hundred years ago, it was a theory that had the potential to describe the very shape of the universe. It remained unproved, however, and in 2000 the Clay Mathematics Institute identified it as one of the seven great and essential unsolved conundrums of the new millennium - and offered a one-million-dollar prize for its solution. Six years later, the conjecture appears to have been solved by a remarkable and reclusive Russian mathematician, Grigory Perelman. "The Poincare Conjecture" brings alive the human drama behind the most important mathematical breakthrough of the twenty-first century, and in doing so provides a lens through which to view the history of mathematics and the achievements of those whose personalities and genius have transformed the field over the years.

In its dramatic finale, O'Shea's book chronicles the extraordinary events and media sensation at the 2006 International Mathematical Union conference in Madrid, where the eccentric Perelman was awarded a Fields Medal - the mathematical equivalent to the Nobel Prize - only to turn it down, claiming he had no interest in the spotlight. "The Poincare Conjecture" is a remarkable story of human endeavour, intellectual brilliance and the thrill of discovery. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.
