I was fascinated to see a mathematician’s attitude towards real life applica I got to know prof. But such intrinsic value is not arbitrary. Hir aesthetic is likely to attract those with a talent to employ it creatively. Apologia di un matematico, di G. And while they end up only tangentially relating to his thesis, the first few chapters, in which GH discusses the nature of ambition, ability, growth, etc. Paradoxically, this is what makes an aesthetic so powerful: The prospect of leaving some mark so enduring is certainly catering to ambition which Hardy encouragesbut this is incompatible with failing to capture beauty, and so it is that one cannot stand without the other.

So, a few months into a Maths A-level, I took this out of Southampton Central Library, and I didn’t give it back for nearly a I nearly studied bie at university, because of this book.

It sounds maybe a little bit matematikinib but I realised that any knowledge, even though we cannot forsee it’s application clearly or at all, is information that can be useful in any other field. Pattern-seeing rather than pattern-making is the essential mathematical skill.

Every matematikniin often I come back to it and I get exactly the same feelings and they push me forward again. Those who renounce the pursuit of worldly accomplishment often do so with other more comfortably nebulous goals in mind: When it is, it develops an uncanny power. Hardy, like many poets and artists as well as other mathematicians, is hesitant about his exposition of the aesthetics of mathematics.

### A Mathematician’s Apology by G.H. Hardy

GH has a real inferiority complex with respect to his love, mathematics, and his writing ability about it. Perhaps people of his era then, or his profession now are aware of these gentlemen he refers to, and of what they said, but I could only read one side of the discussion- the author’s, and so again, this book isn’t written for a general audience. It is not worth an intelligent man’s time to be in the majority. Arrivi nuovi di zecca! The intro is almost as long as the actual Hardy part.

His apology and the intro by C. To him, beautiful math combines simplicity with depth- connecting previously unconnected branches of mathematics and revealing new solutions to unsolvable problems- as well as new problems to be solved. I’ve never read anything else that excludes women so thoroughly.

Hardy is acutely aware that an aesthetic, that is, a specific criterion or set of criteria, is that which is valuable for itself, and for no other reason. This is a book written by a Grand Master Mathematician telling the story about his Apprentice, the young genius Ramanujan, and about the wonderful creativity and the internal urge that, although rare, exist in some people on Earth making them search for the harmony and beauty of the Universe.

He started off by saying that serious mathematicians do math, don’t write stuff about math. Dec 18, Ben rated it really liked it.

## Godfrey Harold Hardy

This memoir from G. I only gave it a 4 instead of 5 because some of the discussion of pure or real Math was over my head. But this book has amplified the person that I might have been into the person that I am, and every so often it does it again, and GH Hardy feels like one of my best friends even though this is all of his work that I know, and I am an non-Oxbridge-educated matemafikinin so if we’d met I would have bored him to tears.

I often have the feeling that scientists should get involved with humanistics more and then they would appreciate more their work outside of their own fields, plus, better decisions can be taken. Mathematicians could care less about their reputations outside of mathematics. It was inspired by the collaboration during the s between two of the most remarkable pure mathematicians of the twentieth century, Srinivasa Ramanujan from India, and the Cambridge University don G.

According to Hardy, first-rate minds care only for creation. I was expecting some self-important manifesto with little information. A short and famous book that’s still relevant today. That cracked me up.

Savvunmas has gotten to a point in his life at which he feels creatively useless, and only then does he look back on his life and attempt to justify it by assessing pure mathematics as a career.

I may be neglecting avenues for achievement that are better suited to me. Hardy has been famous for his brilliance in mathematics and eccentric character at zavunmas same time. I appreciate where we are academically now with this insight.

I may read this book again in the future, but simply due to point one, and as a text. I give five stars relative to my expectation – I was totally surprised how much I liked this book. I’ve spent a non-trivial amount of around mathematicians. At the end of his career, with his health failing, he seems to have abandoned all hope.

Mar 17, Nicolle rated it it was amazing Shelves: If his patterns are more permanent than theirs, it is because they are made with ideas. There’re even a few jokes in it, though these are mainly meant for people who’ve studied at least Calculus. There is efficiency and sweeping elegance in a great result, but too a contribution to that progression of ideas which makes mathematics so enduring.

Indeed, this book is often considered one of the best insights into the mind of a working mathematician written for the layman. On the other hand I think it’s bad for people to read it who don’t have their own strong, fully formed ideas about math.

Though often sounds like he has no interaction with the world outside of mathematics, he’s pretty honest. In his introduction, C. You will see that Mathematics is an art, poetry, emotions – a deep and fantastic connection with another world, that is, with the powerful World of Ideas.
