Description : SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2017 ROYAL SOCIETY SCIENCE BOOK PRIZE Even small children know there are infinitely many whole numbers - start counting and you'll never reach the end. But there are also infinitely many decimal numbers between zero and one. Are these two types of infinity the same? Are they larger or smaller than each other? Can we even talk about 'larger' and 'smaller' when we talk about infinity? In Beyond Infinity, international maths sensation Eugenia Cheng reveals the inner workings of infinity. What happens when a new guest arrives at your infinite hotel - but you already have an infinite number of guests? How does infinity give Zeno's tortoise the edge in a paradoxical foot-race with Achilles? And can we really make an infinite number of cookies from a finite amount of cookie dough? Wielding an armoury of inventive, intuitive metaphor, Cheng draws beginners and enthusiasts alike into the heart of this mysterious, powerful concept to reveal fundamental truths about mathematics, all the way from the infinitely large down to the infinitely small.

Description : This poetry book is a realm of dreams and thoughts unheard over the noise of modern time enemies like ego, anger, greed, ignorance, and lust for money and all the material things. This book is about the hard temptation of breaking chains from the dragged career and became free to dream beyond everything and strike like a humongous lightning bolt and burn down all this enemy to ashes of new begging. Poem of Dream- a visionary unshakable mind to defeat. When the failure comes in, the dope of the dreams kicks in. Poem of love - the conqueror of the unclaimed island called the heart, the cold fire which creates a beauty instead of burn. And there are many more poems which revolve around the words like winter, hope, infinite loop; redemption, time and death (live before leave). Origin of these poems is the childish question and imagination of childhood which is lacking in adults right now. All are just trapped in the mechanism of virtual success, but what about success for the soul. Here are some of my childish questions: 1.what is the colors of our dream? 2. What is at the end of the rainbow? 3. What will you say if I ask you what is the shape of the smile? 4. Do you ever think of how much distance there is between two heartbeats? I am answering these questions through my poems. And many more feelings and emotions are equally poured by thunderbolts of words. All these poems are just trying to capture my transcendence feeling into simple words.

Description : Eli Maor examines the role of infinity in mathematics and geometry and its cultural impact on the arts and sciences. He evokes the profound intellectual impact the infinite has exercised on the human mind--from the "horror infiniti" of the Greeks to the works of M. C. Escher; from the ornamental designs of the Moslems, to the sage Giordano Bruno, whose belief in an infinite universe led to his death at the hands of the Inquisition. But above all, the book describes the mathematician's fascination with infinity--a fascination mingled with puzzlement. "Maor explores the idea of infinity in mathematics and in art and argues that this is the point of contact between the two, best exemplified by the work of the Dutch artist M. C. Escher, six of whose works are shown here in beautiful color plates."--Los Angeles Times "[Eli Maor's] enthusiasm for the topic carries the reader through a rich panorama."--Choice "Fascinating and enjoyable.... places the ideas of infinity in a cultural context and shows how they have been espoused and molded by mathematics."--Science
