9781582340678: Uncle Petros & Goldbach's Conjecture
Rezension:

"A mathematical conjecture unsolved for two centuries; a mathematical genius uncle driven mad trying to solve it; an ambiguous relation with a mathematically-minded nephew; and acute human observation all come together in "Uncle Petros" to make a very funny, tender, charming and, to my mind, irresistible novel." --Oliver Sacks, M.D."The most dramatic book I've read all year, with ambition, betrayal and greedy self-sacrifice to rival anything you'd find in an opera." --"Newsday""A fascinating, captivating, intellectual joy ride..." --"Miami Herald"

Vom Verlag:

In the tradition of"Fermat's Last Theorem" and "Einstein's Dreams," a novel about mathematical obsession. Petros Papachristos devotes the early part of his life trying to prove one of the greatest mathematical challenges of all time: Goldbach's Conjecture, the deceptively simple claim that every even number greater than two is the sum of two primes. Against a tableau of famous historical figures-among them G.H. Hardy, the self-taught Indian genius Srinivasa Ramanujan, and a young Kurt Godel-Petros works furiously to prove the notoriously difficult conjecture. Decades later, his ambitious young nephew drives the defeated mathematician back into the hunt to prove Goldbach's Conjecture. . . but at the cost of the old man's sanity, and perhaps even his life.
