Details

Beginning by attempting to explain what infinity is – and why it is ‘easy to think about but hard to pin down’ – this approachable guide uses carefully chosen analogies and classic thought experiments such as Hilbert's Hotel to help illuminate complex ideas. Eugenia Cheng presents mathematics as an exciting journey of discovery, and uses practical examples to help us understand the abstract concept of infinity in the context of our daily lives.
