PYTHAGORAS: HIS LIFE, TEACHING & INFLUENCE. Christoph Riedwegs book is an engaging introduction to the fundamental contributions of Pythagoras to the establishment of European culture. Riedweg not only examines the written record but also considers Pythagoras within the cultural, intellectual, & spiritual context of his times. The result is an overview of the life & teachings of a crucial Greek thinker.

WHEN STRAIGHT LINES CURVE: NON-EUCLIDIAN GEOMETRY. Since the time of Euclid, more than 2000 years ago, there seemed to be only one kind of geometry. However, new developments in mathematics have put forward alternative geometries in which worlds curve in a dizzying fashion. It may seem crazy, but these worlds exist and we live in them all simultaneously.

CODING & ENCRYPTION. The safety and confidentiality of communication in the digital world depends on a complex code designed by mathematics. This book offers a stimulating journey through the arithmetic of security and secrecy, introduces you to the encryptors and decryptors who determined the destiny of nations and uncovers the language through which computers communicate.

PRIME NUMBERS: AN UNPREDICTABLE SERIES. Most numbers behave according to simple, clear rules. However, prime numbers are a real anomaly: they appear wherever they want to, without prior warning, in an apparently chaotic fashion and without following any pattern. And the worst of it is that they cannot be ignored - they are essential to arithmetic and, to a certain extent, all mathematics.

BEAUTY of FRACTALS: COMPLEX DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS. A total of 184 illustrations - including 88 full-colour pictures of Julia sets. However, the invited contributions which round off the book lend the text the required formality. Benoit Mandelbrot gives a very personal account, in his idiosyncratic self-centred style, of his discovery of the fractals named after him and Adrien Douady explains the solved and unsolved problems relating to this amusingly complex set.
