Simon Singh. In his first book since the bestselling Fermat's Enigma, Simon Singh offers the first sweeping history of encryption, tracing its evolution and revealing the dramatic effects codes have had on wars, nations, and individual lives. From Mary, Queen of Scots, trapped by her own code, to the Navajo Code Talkers who helped the Allies win World War II, to the incredible and incredibly simple logisitical breakthrough that made Internet commerce secure, The Code Book tells the story of the most powerful intellectual weapon ever known: secrecy.
Throughout the text are clear technical and mathematical explanations, and portraits of the remarkable personalities who wrote and broke the world's most difficult codes. Accessible, compelling, and remarkably far-reaching, this book will forever alter your view of history and what drives it.
It will also make you wonder how private that e-mail you just sent really is.
That way, even if you miss, you at least had a chance to take aim at the only person able to shoot back. Pierre Fermat turns out to have been quite the prankster, often tweaking professional mathematicians and academics by mailing them problems they knew full well he had already solved.
Just think, were it not for the scrupulous care taken by Fermat's son to go through and publish all of Fermat, Sr. Andrew Wiles published the first and only?

Suffice it to say that I was happy here to read that Taniyama-Shimura get their well-earned due and that modular and elliptical equations can finally be understood to be mathematically analogous whether or not I have any idea what modular equations actually are. Still, all of this leads to what I think is an even more tantalizing problem.
We now know that all of Fermat's conjectures ultimately proved to be solvable and that Fermat's own notes would seem to indicate that he had indeed apparently found ways to solve each of them. But there is no doubt that Fermat's solution could not have relied on the up-to-the-minute maths Wiles employs over pages. So if it was really the limitations of the margin and not of Fermat that inhibited publication… what was Fermat's proof? View all 4 comments.

It gives you an epic scope of the number of minds that it takes to build new ideas.
I doubt if Fermat had actually solved this theorem correctly, but this is impossible to prove. Fermat's theorem however was not impossible to prove! Thanks to the efforts of many men and women! This book has This is the kind of book that we non mathematical minds can easily digest and love.
This book has a lot of wonderful elements, and really exemplifies a love of mathematics. Although if you want to actually understand the theorem this book may not be for you! I can honestly say reading it did not put the theorem in any more digestible light than it started out with.
Perhaps it was to the authors advantage to skip the technicalities and focus on the enjoyment of the journey. I personally loved this approach, but it may not be for everyone, especially if you are actually looking to understand the theorem a massive undertaking that is really not in my repertoire to comment on.
Non poteva che scaturirne una dimostrazione banale. La dimostrazione di quell'equazione banale fece perdere il sonno alle maggiori menti matematiche di tutto il mondo, che per anni si arrovellarono per trovare una soluzione. In matematica si ritiene che un teorema sia dimostrato quando con un procedimento logico se ne fornisce inequivocabilmente e incontestabilmente la correttezza.
Possibile che Fermat avesse trovato una dimostrazione a questo teorema? Ecco, il libro spiega la storia di questa dimostrazione e dei grandi matematici che ci hanno lavorato, spiega la bellezza delle sfide matematiche, l'ostinazione e la determinazione richiesta, l'inventiva necessaria e la potenza di un risultato che diventa "eterno". O si omette la frase, o la si spiega.
Riesce pure a mettere errori di matematica nelle definizioni che, mi dispiace, in un libro di matematica noooooo, proprio non accetto!. Fermat era un buontempone e ci ha preso in giro per anni. Ma senza di lui, oggi le nostre conoscenze matematiche sarebbero certamente inferiori Dec 08, Trevor rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is as interesting as a detective story while being about quite advanced mathematics - as such it is quite a book showing the remarkable skill of its writer to explain complex ideas in ways that are always readable and enjoyable.
A mathematician finds a simple proof to what seems like a deceptively simple problem of mathematics - that pythagoras's theorem only works if the terms are squared, and not if they are any other power up to infinity. Except that the mathematician jo This book is as interesting as a detective story while being about quite advanced mathematics - as such it is quite a book showing the remarkable skill of its writer to explain complex ideas in ways that are always readable and enjoyable.
Except that the mathematician jots down that he has found this proof, but not what the proof is. And for hundredsd of years the greatest minds in mathematics have tried to find this simple proof and been beaten by the problem time and again. This really is a delightful book and one that gives an insight into how mathematicians think about the world. The proof of Pythagoras's theorem given in this book is so simple that the beauty of mathematical proof is made plain to everyone. Just a little knowledge of algebra is needed for this part of the book - the rest requires no maths at all.
I plan to write a glowing book review but this space is too limited to contain it. Na margini svog primerka Diophantusove "Aritmetike" , Fermat je zapisao: Iako je postojao propust u Freyevom postupku, Ribet je Volim nauku, posebno kad je lepo napisana. Axel Thue i Andrew Hodges, Tjuringov biograf nedoslednost u istom redu! Es la vida de personas que significaron algo para que este teorema existiera y para que finalmente fuera solucionado. Oct 04, Campbell Mcaulay rated it it was amazing. What held me back is what will probably put a lot of other potential readers off trying it - the boring old "I'm no good at maths" argument.
Given that this book is about a problem that flummoxed the best mathematical minds in the world for over years you'd be forgiven for putting this back on the shelf and choosing something a little simpler.
