Infinity and Beyond by New Scientist

We live in a mathematical universe. Numbers, data, shapes, motion and change are fundamental to the world around us. Mathematics allows us to describe these things – and so achieve a better understanding of the universe.

But the language of mathematics often gets lost in translation. Infinity and Beyond, the latest issue of New Scientist: The Collection, provides you with your personal key. Come on an exhilarating journey through the mathematical landscape, taking in wonders of numbers from zero to infinity and all points in between, plus the intricacies of probability, statistics and computational complexity, the mathematics hidden in everyday life and the universe’s symmetries. It’s all in service of answering a fundamental question: how exactly does maths connect with reality?

New Scientist: The Collection is a themed compilation of recent articles and special reports from our back catalogue, providing a book-length examination of some of the deepest questions known to humanity. LOVE it or loathe it, there is no escape: mathematics is out there. We live in a world that is in some sense mathematical — although in precisely what sense is still hotly debated by mathematicians, physicists, philosophers and others. We are, as a result, innately mathematical beings. Crossing the road, catching a ball, stacking the dishwasher: in our everyday lives we are constantly, unconsciously, manipulating numbers, assessing shapes, calculating position, geometry and motion.
