A fascinating look at the math and mystique of prime numbers.
Prime numbers — numbers that are only divisible by one and themselves — have long intrigued mathematicians. This book brings to life the strange attraction of primes, from their current use in codes and cryptography to the Fermat and Fibonacci numbers, Goldbach’ s Conjecture, the Mersenne primes, and the number mysticism of old Pythagoras; from prime records and mathematicians’ ingenious efforts to find primes (including a 200 breakthrough algorithm), all the way to the unproven Riemann Hypothesis and the extraordinary zeta function. Filled with prime curios and profiles of prime-obsessed mathematicians, this book is a treat for math fans everywhere.
