  • Closing the Gap
    Closing the Gap (English, Hardback) Vicky Neale

    Mathematicians have recently made dramatic progress on the Twin Primes Conjecture, which asserts that there are infinitely many pairs of prime numbers that differ by 2. This book will describe two stories: that of the recent work on the Twin Primes Conjecture, and in parallel the related ideas from the previous two thousand years of mathematics.

  • Fearless Symmetry
    Fearless Symmetry (English, Paperback) Avner Ash, Robert Gross

    Mathematicians solve equations, or try to. But sometimes the solutions are not as interesting as the beautiful symmetric patterns that lead to them. This book discusses these elegant and mysterious patterns and the ingenious techniques mathematicians use to uncover them. It addresses representation theory and reciprocity laws.
