Description

Chaotic Fishponds and Mirror Universes explains how mathematics determines every aspect of our lives-right down to the foundations of our bodies. Math is everywhere, whether we are aware of it or not. What can we learn from fish in a pond? How do social networks connect the world? How can artificial intelligences learn? How can math make you a better liar? Exploring math through 35 of its odd and often unexpected applications, this book provides an insight into the 'hidden wiring' that governs our world.
