Yearning for the Impossible: The Surprising Truths of Mathematics

Yearning for the Impossible: The Surprising Truths of Mathematics by John C. Stillwell
A K Peters/CRC Press | May 23, 2006 | English | ISBN: 156881254X | 230 pages | PDF | 15 MB

This book explores the history of mathematics from the perspective of the creative tension between common sense and the "impossible" as the author follows the discovery or invention of new concepts that have marked mathematical progress: - Irrational and Imaginary Numbers - The Fourth Dimension - Curved Space - Infinity and others The author puts these creations into a broader context involving related "impossibilities" from art, literature, philosophy, and physics.
Riemann Surfaces (Oxford Graduate Texts in Mathematics, Book 22)

Riemann Surfaces (Oxford Graduate Texts in Mathematics, Book 22) by Simon Donaldson
English | 2011 | ISBN: 0198526393 , 0199606749 | 256 pages | PDF | 1,3 MB

The theory of Riemann surfaces occupies a very special place in mathematics. It is a culmination of much of traditional calculus, making surprising connections with geometry and arithmetic. It is an extremely useful part of mathematics, knowledge of which is needed by specialists in many other fields.
Here's Looking at Euclid: A Surprising Excursion Through the Astonishing World of Math (repost)

Alex Bellos, "Here's Looking at Euclid: A Surprising Excursion Through the Astonishing World of Math"
English | ISBN: 1416588256 | 2011 | epub | 336 pages | 5,1 MB

Too often math gets a bad rap, characterized as dry and difficult. But, Alex Bellos says, "math can be inspiring and brilliantly creative. Mathematical thought is one of the great achievements of the human race, and arguably the foundation of all human progress. The world of mathematics is a remarkable place.
