Book Description
A fascinating look at the math and mystique of prime numbers
Prime numbers-numbers that are only divisible by one and themselves-have long intrigued mathematicians. This book brings to life the strange attraction of primes, from their current use in codes and cryptography to the Fermat and Fibonacci numbers, Goldbach’s Conjecture, the Mersenne primes, and the number mysticism of old Pythagoras; from prime records and mathematicians’ ingenious efforts to find primes (including a 2002 breakthrough algorithm), all the way to the unproven Riemann Hypothesis and the extraordinary zeta function. Filled with prime curios and profiles of prime-obsessed mathematicians, this book is a treat for math fans everywhere.
