Five Equations that Changed the World: The Power and Poetry of Mathematics

By Michael Guillen

A Publishers Weekly top booklet of 1995!

Dr. Michael Guillen, recognized to hundreds of thousands because the technology editor of ABC's Good Morning America, tells the attention-grabbing tales in the back of 5 mathematical equations.

As a standard contributor to daytime's most well liked morning information exhibit and an teacher at Harvard college, Dr. Michael Guillen has earned the distinction of hundreds of thousands as a transparent and enjoyable advisor to the exhilarating global of technology and arithmetic.

Now Dr. Guillen unravels the equations that experience resulted in the innovations and occasions that symbolize the fashionable global, considered one of which -- Albert Einstein's recognized power equation, E=mc2 -- enabled the construction of the nuclear bomb. additionally published are the mathematical foundations for the moon touchdown, aircraft go back and forth, the electrical generator -- or even existence itself.

Praised through Publishers Weekly as "a entirely obtainable, superbly written exploration of the effective mathematical imagination," and named a top Nonfiction ebook of 1995, the tales at the back of The 5 Equations that modified the World, as instructed through Dr. Guillen, will not be purely chronicles of technology, but in addition gripping dramas of jealousy, repute, battle, and discovery.
