PROFESSOR STEWART'S CASEBOOK OF MATHEMATICAL MYSTERIES

IAN STEWART    Book Number: 86589    Product format: Paperback

An enticing collection of 150 mathematical curios and conundrums with a new puzzle on each page including geomagic squares, digital cubes, narcissistic numbers, mathematical Haiku, the puzzle of the purloined papers, Fermat's last limerick, polygons forever, dates (such as Pi day) and more. Written with Professor Stewart's trademark humour and numerous illustrations, here are fascinating formulae and thrilling theorems. We follow the adventures of the not-so-great Detective Hemlock Soames and his sidekick Dr John Wotsup who by coincidence live at 222B Baker Street, just across the road from their more illustrious neighbour. A typical item is 'The Case of the Face-Down Aces', a mathematical magic trick of quite devilish cunning. Ranging from one-liners to four page investigations from the frontiers of mathematical research written by Britain's most brilliant prolific populariser of maths. He can dart randomly from digital cubes to the hairy ball theorem with playful curiosity! 307pp in paperback.
