about this item

Recreational mathematics may sound like an oxymoron, but millions play Sudoku every day. The 28 chapters of Puzzles, Numbers and Infinity are self-contained, letting the reader dip in and out of its intriguing puzzles and surprising facts. Learn about the fundamental constant of music, a number that most musicians don't even know nothing about. There follow puzzles involving golf, tennis and cricket; descriptions of unexpected lotto results; the so-called German Tank Problem; and Einstein's most famous equation. Perhaps the greatest surprise for many readers will come in the book's last chapter - that there is a number bigger than infinity, and a number that's bigger than that, and another.
