Weird Maths is a lively, accessible, fun book about mathematics, the maths that is all around us, that defines us, our intelligence, our curiosity. David Darling and Agnijo Banerjee explore the cutting edge of modern maths and delve into some fascinating questions: Is anything truly random? Does infinity actually exist? Can maths help us understand chaos? Can chess be solved with maths? If there are aliens and if they play music, would we like it? Packed with puzzles and paradoxes, mind-bending concepts and surprising solutions, Weird Maths is a book for anyone who is interested in maths or in popular science.
Weird Maths: At the Edge of Infinity and Beyond will be followed in 2019 by a sequel, Weirder Maths.
