Amir D. Aczel is the bestselling author of ten books, including Entanglement, The Riddle of the Compass, The Mystery of the Aleph, and Fermat's Last Theorem. He lives in Brookline, Massachusetts. Till I started to read this book from Amir Aczel. This is mathematics in another way. Not too much equations, formulas, integrals, etc. No, this is mathematics one may do by just sitting in a comfortable chair and playing with the thoughts bubbling up inside the brain. This is almost about what Georg Cantor did. Besides describing many great scientist of his time, as Weierstrass, Riemann, Dedekind and others, the book describes thoroughly the life and work of Cantor.

Aczel also has an interesting hint - which he also mentions in his book Finding Zero - about the relationship between Kabbalah and mathematics - essentially that they challenge . I'll be sure to read all the other books by Amir D. Aczel.

Amir D. Aczel was born in Haifa, Israel. This inspired Aczel's book The Riddle of the Compass.

The Mystery of the Aleph tells the story of Georg Cantor (1845-1918), a Russian-born German who created set theory, the concept of infinite numbers, and the "continuum hypothesis," which challenged the very foundations of mathematics. Aczel has appeared on more than 30 television programs. ore about Amir D. Category: Audiobooks.

God’s Equation: Einstein, Relativity, and the Expanding. Aczel, P., is the author of FERMAT'S LAST THEOREM, GOD'S EQUATION, EINSTEIN'S RELATIVITY AND THE EXPANDING UNIVERSE and several other books. His work has been translated into Turkish, Hebrew, French, German, Italian, Chinese and Spanish. An internationally known mathematician, he lives in Waltham Massachusetts.

Описание: Finding Zero is an adventure-filled saga of Amir Aczel& lifelong obsession: to find the original sources of our numerals.

In the late 19th century, a brilliant mathematician languished in an asylum. His greatest accomplishment, the result of a series of leaps of insight, was his pioneering understanding of the nature of infinity. This is the story of Georg Cantor: how he came to his theories and the reverberations of his work, the consequences of which shape our world. Cantor's theory of the infinite is famous for its many seeming contradictions: for example, we can prove there are as many points on a line one inch long as on a line one mile long; we can also prove that in all time there are as many years as there are days. According to Cantor, infinite sets are equal. The mind-twisting, deeply philosophical work of Cantor has its roots in ancient Greek mathematics and Jewish numerology as found in the mystical work known as the Kabbalah. Cantor used the term aleph-the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, with all its attendant divine associations-to refer to the mysterious number which is the sum of positive integers. It is not the last positive number, because . . . there is no last. It is the ultimate number that is always being approached: just as, for example, there is no last fraction before the number 1.
