One of the great mysteries of science is that its fundamental laws are written in the language of mathematics. Graham Farmelo’s thrilling new book shows how modern maths has helped physicists to rethink gravity, space, and time.
The Universe Speaks in Numbers takes us on an adventure from the Enlightenment to the present with a vibrant cast of characters, illuminating the most exciting and controversial developments in contemporary thought. Always lively and authoritative, Farmelo navigates the listener through the huge imaginative leaps that are edging us towards a radically new conception of the nature of our universe.
