The Language of Mathematics : A brilliant exploration of an often woefully misunderstood subject The Language of Mathematics celebrates the simplicity, the precision, the purity, and the elegance of mathematics. Taking the reader on a wondrous journey through the invisible universe that surrounds us - a universe made visible by mathematics - Devlin shows us what keeps a jumbo jet in the air, explains how we can see and hear a football game on TV, allows us to predict the weather, the behavior of the stock market, and the outcome of elections. Microwave ovens, telephone cables, children's toys, pacemakers, automobiles, and computers - all operate on mathematical principles. Far from a dry and esoteric subject, mathematics is a rich and living part of our culture.
