### SUMMARY The Poincaré Conjecture In Search of the Shape of the Universe

Henri Poincaré 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 Poincaré conjecture lies at the heart of modern geometry and topology and even pertains to the possible shape of the universe The conjecture My meeting with this book fell considerably short of love at first sight Not saw it on sale yesterday at a Melbourne bookstore and asked if I thought it might be interesting I picked it up glanced at the less than brilliant cover and leafed through it for a minute or two the writing seemed lackluster and the first anecdote I found was one I d seen before I was about to put it back when I reconsidered It cost 10 and was evidently an easy read I d always wondered what the deal was with the mysterious Poincar conjecture Why not find outWell I couldn t have wrong this is a truly excellent book The bare bones of the story are easy to summarize The Poincar conjecture formulated in 1900 by Henri Poincar states cryptically that every simply connected closed 3 manifold is homeomorphic to the 3 sphere It rem The Teams Milking Cow one A Wolfs Desire Reluctant Mates of the greatest mathematicians Via Suez (British): Blue Funnel Line (Merchant Navy Series Book 3) of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century He revolutionized the field Zenith of topology which studies properties A Pale Light in the Black of geometric configurations that are unchanged by stretching Devil Versus Alpha The Millennium Wolves of modern geometry and topology and even pertains to the possible shape Spieserye of the universe The conjecture My meeting with this book fell considerably short Feral of love at first sight Not saw it Krismis van Map Jacobs on sale yesterday at a Melbourne bookstore and asked if I thought it might be interesting I picked it up glanced at the less than brilliant cover and leafed through it for a minute Girls Are Coming Out of the Woods or two the writing seemed lackluster and the first anecdote I found was Crust From Sourdough Spelt and Rye Bread to Ciabatta Bagels and Brioche one I d seen before I was about to put it back when I reconsidered It cost 10 and was evidently an easy read I d always wondered what the deal was with the mysterious Poincar conjecture Why not find Til Death Do Us Part (Vows, outWell I couldn t have wrong this is a truly excellent book The bare bones Mensa Riddles Conundrums of the story are easy to summarize The Poincar conjecture formulated in 1900 by Henri Poincar states cryptically that every simply connected closed 3 manifold is homeomorphic to the 3 sphere It rem

T 2006 He also will almost certainly share a Clay Institute millennium awardIn telling the vibrant story of The Poincaré 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 conjectu The fact is I would need infinitive sets of lifes to read all the books I want and another set of infinitive lifes to put into practice everything I read in all the books I would achieve to read in those other infinite sets of lifes certainly an infinite number of books And yet I would need an infinite memory to recall all the things I learn from them and correct maybe all the infinite sets of mistakes I would make during my infinite learning If infinite books available I might not be able to start anew with the first book but having enough infinite time who knows Life would be infinite even if memory would notI finished this book with a feeling of satisfaction with the great pleasure of having touched albeit with the points of my fingers the fascinating world of topology and geometry and while I want to l

So – the shape of the universe It’s a giant ball right Especially when you think of its beginning in a big bang But that brings up the awkward uestion of what’s outside the ball Space universe is not infinite It’s believed to be finite but without a boundary It becomes easier to understand this if you consider two dimensiona

There was some explanation earlier in the book but later explanation was poor I came away with little understanding of how the Poinc

I've been interested in the Millennium problems since I first read about them several years ago It was exciting to read about the first one to be solved I never took topology in college though so I have to admit that much of this went right over my head If you wanted to know without reading all the math yes the Poincare conjecture turned out

This book was in the 'mathematics' section in the library and I was expecting something mathematics focused Hence I was disappointed by the history lesson this book turned out to be Except for the initial confusio

As a recent grad student in mathematics I found this book incredibly interesting It made me want to go on and get my PhD in manifold theory

The fact is I would need infinitive sets of lifes to read all the books I want and another set of infinitive lifes to put into practice everyth

This was a decent book but a bit of a hard readFirstly the book introduces many concepts by name with some short descriptions and then goes on to discuss them in some ualitative detail; how one concept leads to another; how concepts fail to connect For me at least this was difficult to follow Granted in order to truly understand what is being discussed you would need to understand the mathematics; perhaps this is just an

This book was about as painful as reading the book of Genesis its pages mostly comprise a chronological list of mathematicians and so and so's work begot so and so's thesis interspersed with definitions sans explanation or example a group a ring etc The highlights were the only occasional example of geometry in mathematical physics
