The Universe and the Teacup: The Mathematics of Truth and Beauty

By K.C. Cole
In a poetic and passionate book that reveals how mathematics leads to fundamental truths of the universe, noted science writer K.C. Cole demystifies mathematics, relating it to such commonplace occurrences as the O.J. Simpson verdict, the voting theories that kept Lani Guinier out of office, and the errors that undermine the Bell Curve. If you saw her well-attended panel at Fall Camp 1997, you had a preview. Harcourt Brace, 1998.
