A singular mathematical promenade

Published on : February 5, 2018

A stroll in the mathematical world by Etienne Ghys.

A singular mathematical promenade
This is neither an elementary introduction to the theory of singularities, nor a specialized treatise containing many new theorems.

The purpose of this little book is to invite the reader on a mathematical promenade. We pay a visit to Hipparchus, Newton and Gauss, but also to many contemporary mathematicians.

We play with a bit of algebra, topology, geometry, complex analysis, combinatorics, and computer science. Hopefully some motivated undergraduates and some more advanced mathematicians will enjoy some of these panoramas.
