Summary
"Love and Math tells the two intertwined stories of mathematics and the adventure of one man in learning it. The result is a story about how he became one of the twenty-first century's leading mathematicians, working on one of the biggest ideas to come out of mathematics in the last 50 years: the Langlands Program. As Frenkel proves, a mathematical formula can be as elegant and beautiful as a painting, a poem, or a piece of music. And the process of creating new mathematics is just that, an artistic pursuit-- a deeply personal experience, which requires passion, dedication, and love. In Love and Math, Frenkel shows readers the aesthetic-- and the truly powerful-- side of mathematics, and enables appreciation of the field even from those who have long been terrified by it."--
