Descript XVI, 435 p. online resource


The authors have been beguiled and entranced by mathematics all of their lives, and both believe it is the highest expression of pure thought and an essential component-one might say the quintessence-of nature. How else can one exยญ plain the remarkable effectiveness of mathematics in describing and predicting the physical world? The projection of the mathematical method onto the subspace of human endeavยญ 1 ors has long been a source of societal progress and commercial technology. The invention of the electronic digital computer (not the mechanical digital computer of Babbage) has made the role of mathematics in civilization even more central by making mathematics active in the operation of products. The writing of this book was intertwined with the development of a start-up company, Aware, Inc. Aware was founded in 1987 by one of the authors (H.L.R.), and the second author (R.O.W.) put his shoulder to the wheel as a consultant soon after
