Eine Liebeserklärung an die Mathematik und eine Autobiographie wie ein großer russischer Roman – der New York Times-Bestseller des brillanten Mathematikers Edward Frenkel

Zwei faszinierende Erzählungen – die eine mathematischer Natur, die andere persönlich – sind in Liebe und Mathematik miteinander verwoben … Geschickt führt Frenkel den Leser … an die Ränder unserer gegenwärtigen Kenntnis. Sein Ziel ist es, die Schönheit der Mathematik für jeden sichtbar zu machen. Nature

Edward Frenkels Buch Liebe und Mathematik ist im Kern eine Liebesgeschichte, die romantische Beschreibung und Liebeserklärung eines Mannes an jene Gefährtin, die ihm das Schicksal zugeteilt hat. Wenn ich das Buch in einem Wort zusammenfassen sollte, dann wäre dieses Wort Leidenschaft. Die romantische, stellenweise poetische Prosa, der breite Bogen tiefer und profunder menschlicher Ideen und der ewige Reigen fundamentaler Fragen, die beständig in neuem Gewand wieder auftauchen, lassen quick unweigerlich an die großen russischen Romane von Dostojewski, Pasternak, Scholochow und all den anderen denken. Keith Devlin, Huffington publish

Liebe und Mathematik ist zugleich eine Autobiographie, ein Eingangstor zum Verständnis der Mathematik, die so oft Furcht einflößt, und der erste allgemein verständliche Bericht über das Langlands-Programm, eines der zentralen schöpferischen Projekte der heutigen Menschheit. In diesem Buch geht es in fundamentaler Weise um unser Wissen von der Realität auf allen Ebenen. Jaron Lanier, Autor von Wem gehört die Zukunft?

Liebe und Mathematik ist nicht etwa ein abgehobener philosophischer Überblick über die Mathematik, sondern ein Bericht direkt aus dem Leben eines praktizierenden Mathematikers an der vordersten entrance der Forschung. Und als solcher ist das Buch kraftvoll, leidenschaftlich und inspirierend. New York occasions

In der Überzeugung, dass manche von uns sich nicht mit der Mathematik einlassen, weil wir sie nicht sehen können, setzt Professor Frenkel sie unermüdlich in Beziehung zu Dingen, die wir sehen können. Ein farbensattes Lob der Zahlen. The parent

Wenn guy dieses Buch liest, fühlt guy den Drang, alles fallen zu lassen und der Mathematik eine neue probability zu geben; teilzuhaben am ultimativ Geheimnisvollen. Chris Carter, Schöpfer von Akte X (The X Files)

Ein atemberaubendes landscape der modernen Mathematik. Mario Livio, Astrophysiker und Autor von Ist Gott ein Mathematiker? und Brilliant Blunders

Sollten Sie kein Mathematiker sein – dieses Buch weckt den Wunsch, einer zu werden. Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Autor von Der schwarze Schwan und Antifragilität

_____

Stellen Sie sich vor, Sie besuchten eine Kunstschule, in der guy Ihnen lediglich beibringt, wie guy einen Gartenzaun streicht. Stellen Sie sich vor, guy hätte Ihnen dort nie die Bilder von Picasso und van Gogh gezeigt, Ihnen noch nicht einmal gesagt, dass es diese Bilder überhaupt gibt. So ungefähr wird an unseren Schulen Mathematik unterrichtet, und es ist daher kein Wunder, dass sie für die meisten von uns als eine zutiefst langweilige geistige Übung erscheint.

In Liebe und Mathematik zeigt uns der berühmtekannte Mathematiker Edward Frenkel eine Seite der Mathematik, die wir noch nie gesehen haben. Hier offenbaren sich die Schönheit und die Eleganz eines großen Kunstwerks. In seinem leidenschaftlichen Buch beweist Frenkel, dass die Mathematik alles andere ist als nur die Nische einiger Spezialisten: Sie rührt vielmehr ans Herz aller Dinge und eint uns über alle Kulturen, Zeiten und Räume hinweg.

Liebe und Mathematik erzählt zwei miteinander verwobene Geschichten: eine von den Wundern der Mathematik und eine von der Reise eines jungen Mannes, der diese career erlernt und sie lebt. Nachdem er ein repressives Ausbildungssystem gemeistert hat, entwickelt er sich zu einem der führenden Mathematiker des 21. Jahunderts. Heute arbeitet Frenkel an einer der größten Ideen, die der Mathematik in den letzten 50 Jahren entsprungen sind: dem Langlands-Programm. Viele sehen darin die große vereinheitlichte Theorie der Mathematik. Das Langlands-Programm ermöglicht es Forschern, ihre Entdeckungen aus einem Gebiet in ein vollkommen anderes zu übertragen und somit Probleme zu lösen, die zuvor als unlösbar galten, wie etwa den Großen Fermat’schen Satz.

Im Kern ist Liebe und Mathematik eine Geschichte über eine andere artwork des Denkens, die unser Leben bereichern und uns in die Lage versetzen kann, die Welt und unseren Platz in ihr besser zu verstehen. Es ist eine Einladung, das geheimnisvolle, verborgene Universum der Mathematik zu entdecken.
