SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2017 ROYAL SOCIETY SCIENCE BOOK PRIZE Even small children know there are infinitely many whole numbers - start counting and you'll never reach the end. But there are also infinitely many decimal numbers between zero and one. Are these two types of infinity the same? Are they larger or smaller than each other? Can we even talk about 'larger' and 'smaller' when we talk about infinity? In Beyond Infinity, international maths sensation Eugenia Cheng reveals the inner workings of infinity. What happens when a new guest arrives at your infinite hotel - but you already have an infinite number of guests? How does infinity give Zeno's tortoise the edge in a paradoxical foot-race with Achilles? And can we really make an infinite number of cookies from a finite amount of cookie dough? Wielding an armoury of inventive, intuitive metaphor, Cheng draws beginners and enthusiasts alike into the heart of this mysterious, powerful concept to reveal fundamental truths about mathematics, all the way from the infinitely large down to the infinitely small.

This poetry book is a realm of dreams and thoughts unheard over the noise of modern time enemies like ego, anger, greed, ignorance, and lust for money and all the material things. This book is about the hard temptation of breaking chains from the dragged career and became free to dream beyond everything and strike like a humongous lightning bolt and burn down all this enemy to ashes of new begging. Poem of Dream- a visionary unshakable mind to defeat. When the failure comes in, the dope of the dreams kicks in. Poem of love - the conqueror of the unclaimed island called the heart, the cold fire which creates a beauty instead of burn. And there are many more poems which revolve around the words like winter, hope, infinite loop; redemption, time and death (live before leave). Origin of these poems is the childish question and imagination of childhood which is lacking in adults right now. All are just trapped in the mechanism of virtual success, but what about success for the soul. Here are some of my childish questions: 1.what is the colors of our dream? 2. What is at the end of the rainbow? 3. What will you say if I ask you what is the shape of the smile? 4. Do you ever think of how much distance there is between two heartbeats? I am answering these questions through my poems. And many more feelings and emotions are equally poured by thunderbolts of words. All these poems are just trying to capture my transcendence feeling into simple words.

Im 17. Jahrhundert war es höchste Zeit, dass ein Genie auftauchte und Schneisen ins Dickicht des Unwissens schlug. Isaac Newton war dieses Genie. Und ein Arschloch. Science Buster Florian Freistetter zeigt, wie intrigant und hinterhältig Newton wirklich war und dass sein Hass auf Robert Hooke und Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz keine Grenzen kannte. Gleichzeitig beweist er, dass Newton die Physik niemals revolutioniert hätte, wenn er nicht solch ein Kotzbrocken gewesen wäre. Wenn Genialität auf Streitsucht trifft – und dabei ein kosmisches Arschloch herauskommt, davon erzählt Freistetters Buch mit schonungslosem Humor.

Eli Maor examines the role of infinity in mathematics and geometry and its cultural impact on the arts and sciences. He evokes the profound intellectual impact the infinite has exercised on the human mind--from the "horror infiniti" of the Greeks to the works of M. C. Escher; from the ornamental designs of the Moslems, to the sage Giordano Bruno, whose belief in an infinite universe led to his death at the hands of the Inquisition. But above all, the book describes the mathematician's fascination with infinity--a fascination mingled with puzzlement. "Maor explores the idea of infinity in mathematics and in art and argues that this is the point of contact between the two, best exemplified by the work of the Dutch artist M. C. Escher, six of whose works are shown here in beautiful color plates."--Los Angeles Times "[Eli Maor's] enthusiasm for the topic carries the reader through a rich panorama."--Choice "Fascinating and enjoyable.... places the ideas of infinity in a cultural context and shows how they have been espoused and molded by mathematics."--Science

Armchair Fiction presents extra-large editions of classic science fiction double novels with original illustrations. The first novel is an amazing science fiction tale titled "Beyond Infinity" by Robert S. Carr. Professor Pritchard Leigh had been considered a brilliant scientist until his ill-fated attempt to conquer the speed of light had resulted in a fatal rocket launching. He was then shunned by the scientific community at large. But two elderly world-renowned scholars, Martin and Martha Madison, still had faith in him. Together, at a secret mountain laboratory called "Meteor Mountain," the three of them undertook a project to discover the secret of eternal youth. The plan involved Martha and Martin traveling in a spaceship past Saturn and back again. Their speeds would be in excess of the speed of light. But to correct the problems of his earlier failure, Professor Leigh had to employ the help of a cranky old scientist named Burgess Wood--a man who stilled pined for the lost love of his youth--Martha Madison herself. And as the countdown commenced, Burgess Wood knew that the woman he still loved might be moments away from eternal youth, or a rocket ride to death... The second novel is "Monsters of the Ray" by A. Hyatt Verrill. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, author, explorer, zoologist, and inventor A. Hyatt Verrill was a regular contributor to Experimenter Publication's two science fiction magazines, Amazing Stories and Amazing Stories Quarterly. "Monsters of the Ray," which appeared in the summer 1929 issue of Amazing Stories Quarterly, is considered one of Verrill's best tales and was lauded over by his editor, T. O'Conor Sloane. The story involves two scientists in the wilds of the Andes Mountains who stumble upon an ancient Incan secret--an incredible ray machine that not only can cut through solid rock, but can also serve as a platform to peer into the distant past. Indeed, the incredible climax of "Monsters of the Ray" seems like a ride on a runaway roller coaster that leaves its tracks and heads straight into outer space.

Winner of a CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title Award for 2011! This book offers an introduction to modern ideas about infinity and their implications for mathematics. It unifies ideas from set theory and mathematical logic, and traces their effects on mainstream mathematical topics of today, such as number theory and combinatorics. The treatment is historical and partly informal, but with due attention to the subtleties of the subject. Ideas are shown to evolve from natural mathematical questions about the nature of infinity and the nature of proof, set against a background of broader questions and developments in mathematics. A particular aim of the book is to acknowledge some important but neglected figures in the history of infinity, such as Post and Gentzen, alongside the recognized giants Cantor and Gödel.
