Excursions in Modern Mathematics: Pearson New International Edition Book Review:

Excursions in Modern Mathematics introduces non-math majors to the power of math by exploring applications like social choice and management science, showing that math is more than a set of formulas. Ideal for an applied liberal arts math course, Tannenbaum’s text is known for its clear, accessible writing style and its unique exercise sets that build in complexity from basic to more challenging. The Eighth Edition offers more real data and applications to connect with today’s students, expanded coverage of applications like growth, and revised exercise sets. MyMathLab exercise sets are expanded and the new Ready To Go MyMathLab course makes course set-up even easier.

When Einstein Walked with Gödel Book Review:

From Jim Holt, the New York Times bestselling author of Why Does the World Exist?, comes an entertaining and accessible guide to the most profound scientific and mathematical ideas of recent centuries in When Einstein Walked with Gödel: Excursions to the Edge of Thought. Does time exist? What is infinity? Why do mirrors reverse left and right but not up and down? In this scintillating collection, Holt explores the human mind, the cosmos, and the thinkers who’ve tried to encompass the latter with the former. With his trademark clarity and humor, Holt probes the mysteries of quantum mechanics, the quest for the foundations of mathematics, and the nature of logic and truth. Along the way, he offers intimate biographical sketches of celebrated and neglected thinkers, from the physicist Emmy Noether to the computing pioneer Alan Turing and the discoverer of fractals, Benoit Mandelbrot. Holt offers a painless and playful introduction to many of our most beautiful but least understood ideas, from Einsteinian relativity to string theory, and also invites us to consider why the greatest logician of the twentieth century believed the U.S. Constitution contained a terrible contradiction—and whether the universe truly has a future.
