Henri Poincar Was One Of The Greatest Mathematicians Of The Late Nineteenth And Early Twentieth Century He Revolutionized The Field Of Topology, Which Studies Properties Of Geometric Configurations That Are Unchanged By Stretching Or Twisting The Poincar Conjecture Lies At The Heart Of Modern Geometry And Topology, And Even Pertains To The Possible Shape Of The Universe The Conjecture States That There Is Only One Shape Possible For A Finite Universe In Which Every Loop Can Be Contracted To A Single Point.Poincar S Conjecture Is One Of The Seven Millennium Problems That Bring A One Million Dollar Award For A Solution Grigory Perelman, A Russian Mathematician, Has Offered A Proof That Is Likely To Win The Fields Medal, The Mathematical Equivalent Of A Nobel Prize, In August 2006 He Also Will Almost Certainly Share A Clay Institute Millennium Award.In Telling The Vibrant Story Of The Poincar Conjecture, Donal O Shea Makes Accessible To General Readers For The First Time The Meaning Of The Conjecture, And Brings Alive The Field Of Mathematics And The Achievements Of Generations Of Mathematicians Whose Work Have Led To Perelman S Proof Of This Famous Conjecture.
Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Poincaré Conjecture book, this is one of the most wanted Donal O'Shea author readers around the world.
