Textul de pe ultima copertă

In 1859, German mathematician Bernhard Riemann presented a paper to the Berlin Academy that would forever change mathematics. The subject was the mystery of prime numbers. At the heart of the presentation was an idea that Riemann had not yet proved—one that baffles mathematicians to this day.
Solving the Riemann Hypothesis could change the way we do business, since prime numbers are the lynchpin for security in banking and e-commerce. It would also have a profound impact on the cutting edge of science, affecting quantum mechanics, chaos theory, and the future of computing. Leaders in math and science are trying to crack the elusive code, and a prize of $1 million has been offered to the winner. In this engaging book, Marcus du Sautoy reveals the extraordinary history behind the holy grail of mathematics and the ongoing quest to capture it.


“An amazing book! Hugely enjoyable. Du Sautoy provides a stunning journey into the wonderful world of primes.”
“This fascinating account, decoding the inscrutable language of the mathematical priesthood, is written like the purest poetry.”
“This is a wonderful book about one of the greatest remaining mysteries in mathematics.”
“No matter what your mathematical IQ, you will enjoy reading The Music of the Primes.”
“Exceptional. ... A book that will draw readers normally indifferent to the subject deep into the adventure of mathematics.”
“[A] lively history. . . . A must for math buffs.”
