Whether you are a student at Princeton University, MIT, or just an enthusiastic science fiction reader trying to get some more information on Wikipedia, you might be interested in the famous Riemann Hypothesis. Well, this book may give you everything you want. Not only because it deals with this mathematical mystery. It also tells you about things like cars, music, time traveling, higher dimensional spaces, and much more. For more than a century scientists have tried to solve the mystery behind the Riemann Hypothesis. But up to today nobody has been able to come up with a definitive proof. This is bad news since large parts of mathematics seem to be built on quicksand as long as the proof of the Riemann Hypothesis is still hanging in the air. A mathematics institute in the US even offers a million dollars to the one solving the mystery. In this book someone actually proves the Riemann Hypothesis. In a completely new graphical way. Believe me; the guys in this story are getting really... More > rich.< Less

    "Great but unusual stories" This is an unusual book. First of all, I like this type of science fiction. It has nothing to do with softy creatures like elves, trolls and so on. No, these are real people. They work, they have fun and they need more money. So, a little bit like ourselves. That's even true for that two-dimensional guy trying to break open his flat universe by using mathematics. So, yes, I like these stories. However, as a science fiction reader you should keep one thing in mind. Be aware of that story dealing with The Riemann Hypothesis called: Juggling with the Zeta function. If you're not at least a student mathematics, don't try to understand everything in it. Just try to get an idea by looking at the pictures. Why? Well there are some formulas and equations included in this story. Compared to the usual publications on this topic, the mathematical statements are relatively simple. But they may be too much for the average reader. Then, why would a story like... More > this still be interesting? Well, don't forget it deals with one of the greatest mysteries of our time. The need to solve this mystery is so urgent that an US mathematics institute even offers a price of one million dollars to the person able to solve this. The advantage of this story is that it approaches the topic in an unusual and graphical way. Therefore, even normal people like you and me, can get an idea of the nature of this mystery. It has at least given me some new ideas on how one may tackle the problem. There is one additional thing however. Every book on this subject mentions the relation of the Hypothesis with other events in our universe. Well, the guys in this story for the first time make use of these side-effects. And I can assure you, with good results. By the way, after reading this tough story you may relax again by reading: Just a matter of timing. This one gives you an escape to the fifties. Well, at least if you like big Cadillac convertibles, Elvis, Chuck and Jerry Lee. Or you may read: The man who cut himself, which you already partly can do using the preview of the book on the website. Have fun.< Less
