Description

The aim of this book is to explain, carefully but not technically, the differences between advanced, research-level mathematics, and the sort of mathematics we learn at school. The most fundamental differences are philosophical, and readers of this bookwill emerge with a clearer understanding of paradoxical-sounding concepts such as infinity, curved space, and imaginary numbers.
