D URING HIS LONG and adventurous life Courant achieved many things in mathematics: in research and the applications of research, in the exposition of mathematics and the education of students, and in administrative and organizational matters. To understand how he, essentially an outsider both in Germany and the United States, accomplished these things we have to examine his personality as well as his scientific works. Courant was born on January 8, , in the small town of Lublinitz in Upper Silesia, now part of Poland but then of Germany. His father, Siegmund, was an unsuccessful businessman. The family moved to Breslau, and soon the precocious Richard was beginning to support himself by tutoring.

In this book, Professor Tony Crilly explains in 50 clear and concise essays the mathematical concepts - ancient and modern, theoretical and practical, everyday and esoteric - that allow us to understand and shape the world around us. Packed with diagrams, examples and anecdotes, this book is the perfect overview of this often daunting but always essential subject. For once, mathematics couldn't be simpler. Main menu Search.

He takes up subjects ranging from the philosophical to the practical-what mathematics is and why it's worth doing, the relationship between logic and proof, the role of beauty in mathematical thinking, the future of mathematics, how to deal with the peculiarities of the mathematical community, and many others.

For more than two thousand years a familiarity with mathematics has been regarded as an indispensable part of the intellectual equipment of every cultured person. Today, unfortunately, the traditional place of mathematics in education is in grave danger. The teaching and learning of mathematics has degenerated into the realm of rote memorization, the outcome of which leads to satisfactory formal ability but does not lead to real understanding or to greater intellectual independence. This new edition of Richard Courant's and Herbert Robbins's classic work seeks to address this problem. Its goal is to put the meaning back into mathematics. Written for beginners and scholars, for students and teachers, for philosophers and engineers, What is Mathematics? Covering everything from natural numbers and the number system to geometrical constructions and projective geometry, from topology and calculus to matters of principle and the Continuum Hypothesis, this fascinating survey allows readers to delve into mathematics as an organic whole rather than an empty drill in problem solving.

Oh no, there's been an error

 - Это не ребро или палец, как в церквях Галиции. Вам и в самом деле стоило бы задержаться и посмотреть. - Может быть, я так и сделаю. - Mala suerte, - вздохнул лейтенант.

Ничего более абсурдного Сьюзан слышать еще не доводилось. Цифровая крепость - не поддающийся взлому код, он погубит агентство. - Если бы я сумел слегка модифицировать этот код, - продолжал Стратмор, - до его выхода в свет… - Он посмотрел на нее с хитрой улыбкой.

Увы, теперь, несмотря на силу рук, он не мог подтянуться, чтобы влезть обратно.

An Elementary Approach to Ideas and Methods

Да, подумал он, время еще. Он огляделся - кругом царил хаос. Наверху включились огнетушители. ТРАНСТЕКСТ стонал. Выли сирены.

Пилот сказал вполне определенно: У меня приказ оставаться здесь до вашего возвращения. Трудно даже поверить, подумал Беккер, что после всех выпавших на его долю злоключений он вернулся туда, откуда начал поиски. Чего же он ждет. Он засмеялся. Ведь пилот может радировать Стратмору. Усмехнувшись, Беккер еще раз посмотрелся в зеркало и поправил узел галстука.

 Я знаю. Коммандер медленно поднял голову. - Файл, который я скачал из Интернета… это был… Сьюзан постаралась сохранить спокойствие. Все элементы игры поменялись местами. Невскрываемого алгоритма никогда не существовало, как не существовало и Цифровой крепости. Файл, который Танкадо разместил в Интернете, представлял собой зашифрованный вирус, вероятно, встроенный в шифровальный алгоритм массового использования, достаточно сильный, чтобы он не смог причинить вреда никому - никому, кроме АНБ.

Длинное одноэтажное здание с огромными окнами и ветхое крыло, прилепившееся сзади.

Сьюзан и Соши занялись поисками во Всемирной паутине. - Лаборатория вне закона? - спросила Сьюзан.  - Это что за фрукт. Соши пожала плечами.

Но за два дня до окончания третьего боевого дежурства в его будущем произошел резкий зигзаг. В пьяной драке Хейл случайно убил сослуживца.
