Brand new. We distribute directly for the publisher. Mathematical Apocrypha is a book of stories about mathematicians and the mathematical. It differs from other books of its
kind in that it includes many stories about contemporary mathematicians. Many of these stories are derived from the author's direct or second-hand experience, and have never before appeared in print. The stories are told in a brisk and engaging style, and are enhanced by numerous photographs and illustrations. The theme of the book is strictly mathematical. Some of the stories, however, are about people who adhere to mathematics but cannot strictly be called mathematicians. Included are stories about Bertrand Russell, Alfred North Whitehead, and Albert Einstein, along with stories about mathematicians Erd??s, Doob, Besicovitch, Atiyah, Wiener, Mary Ellen and Walter Rudin, P??lya, Halmos, Littlewood and many, many more legendary mathematicians.
