Mathematics and related topics

Two good reads.

with one comment

Christmas time is reading time… and I actually read two quite amazing books:

  1. Jacques Hadamard: The Psychology of Invention in the Mathematical Field
    A classic. Very nice introspection and discussion about “how” mathematics is done. In particular it discusses a lot of potential theories of mathematical innovation and invention (as one might have guessed from the title).
  2. Norbert Wiener: I Am a Mathematician
    Part two of his autobiography. A very interesting read with a lot of big names and a lot of interesting insights into various aspects in and around mathematics.  (thanks to Dave Goldberg for the pointer)
