Description: What is a modular form? What is the point of symplectic geometry? This one-of-a-kind reference illuminates modern pure mathematics in all its diversity. More than 200 articles, organized thematically and written by many of the world's leading mathematicians, explain the major ideas and branches of mathematics in a clear, accessible style. Presenting not only definitions but also motivation and context for concepts, methods, theorems, and other topics of mathematical study, this is an indispensable resource for everyone with a serious interest in the field. 1. What is Mathematics? Introduces the language and grammar of mathematics fundamental definitions general goals of mathematical research the subject matter of mathematics 2. The Fundamental Ideas of Mathematics Explores algebra algorithms geometry how analysis became rigorous numbers the crisis in the foundations of mathematics the development of the idea of proof 3. Mathematical Objects Defines and explains more than 75 mathematical objects, concepts, and buzzwords, fromaxiom of choicetozeta function 4. Branches of Mathematics Includes detailed coverage of algebra algebraic geometry analysis combinatorics computation geometry logic and set theory number theory probability 5. Mathematicians Profiles 70 mathematicians, from Apollonius to Weyl, who influenced the field 6. Theorems and Problems Discusses notable theorems and open problems, from the four-color theorem to the Reimann hypothesis 7. The Influence of Mathematics Covers the intellectual and practical influence of mathematics on other disciplines such as analytic philosophy, art, biology, chemistry, economics, finance, and music 8.
