MATHEMATICS A VERY SHORT INTRODUCTION TIMOTHY GOWERS PDF

Jan 29, Nilesh Trivedi rated it really liked it Careful with that title. This book is NOT a tour of current body of mathematical knowledge but instead talks about the way math is done. It talks about abstraction, generalization, proofs with examples of arithmetic, infinity, higher dimensional geometry etc. I would have loved to read this in school to put the textbook content in the proper context.

Jan 24, Dimitrios rated it it was amazing Absolutely great. Let me explain.

Firstly about the level of the book. It is elementary but not basic. There are some concepts and especially some proofs that require some focus to grasp. The amount of equations is minimal, but still some maturity is required to fully appreciate the contents.

I would say that the best audience of the book is a beginning undergrad in a stem program, a motivated and mature high school students with a keen interest on maths or a layman with some maturity of Absolutely great.

I would say that the best audience of the book is a beginning undergrad in a stem program, a motivated and mature high school students with a keen interest on maths or a layman with some maturity of mathematical concepts. I was searching for books to recommend to my students and after finishing that i would highly recommend it. What the book does, is to introduce us to the world of mathematics, what it isall about and how mathematicians approach different ideas and the way Timothy does that is by explaining an array of different ideas from model building, basic arithmetic, formal proofs, complex numbers, number theory, coordinate systems, infinity, higher dimensions, non Eucledian geometries, approximations etc.

In the final chapter there are some comments on common misconceptions about mathematics. There are so many gems in every chapter and the way they are connected makes you understand why mathematicians treat them in that way. From the geometric! The reason of 5 stars is all of the above plus finally understanding why airplanes tend to move towards the poles had to finish my bachelor in physics without ever anyone touching that concept
