What if you had to take an art class in which you were taught only how to paint a fence, but were never shown the paintings of van Gogh or Picasso? Alas, this is how math is taught, and so for most of us it becomes the intellectual equivalent of watching paint dry. Mathematics, he writes, directs the flow of the universe, lurks behind its shapes and curves, holds the reins of everything from tiny atoms to the biggest stars. It is an invitation to discover the hidden magic universe of mathematics. It has been published in 19 languages.
Along the way, there are lots of different things going on in the book, all of them quite interesting. He explains how he fell in love with mathematics, his struggles with the grotesque anti-Semitism of the Soviet system of that time this chapter of the story was published earlier, available here , his experiences with Gelfand and others, and how he came to the US and ended up beginning a successful academic career in the West at Harvard. I remember fairly well the upheaval in the mathematics research community of that era, as the collapse of the Soviet system brought a flood of brilliant mathematicians from Russia to the West. Russia at the time had a vibrant mathematical culture, but one isolated from and quite different than that of the West. Many of its most talented members had rather marginal positions in official academia, and their community was driven much more by a passion for the subject than any sort of careerism.
DOI: Edward Frenkel. Basic Books, Last April the distinguished biologist Edward O. Wilson published an essay in the Wall Street Journal arguing that knowledge of mathematics is not necessary or even particularly helpful in most of the sciences. The champion who stepped forward from the ranks of mathematicians to contest this claim was not an elder statesman like Wilson but a Russian American mathematician in his 40s: Edward Frenkel of the University of California, Berkeley. Frenkel countered that math is indeed a useful tool, and more.

Edward Frenkel: Love and Math —The Heart of Hidden Reality
He is a professor of mathematics at University of California, Berkeley , member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences ,  and author of the bestselling book Love and Math. His father is of Jewish descent and his mother is Russian. After receiving his degree in , he was first invited to Harvard University as a visiting professor, and a year later he enrolled as a graduate student at Harvard.
Most of us are unaware of the hidden world of mathematics. Mathematics directs the flow of the universe, lurks behind its shapes and curves, holds the reins of everything from tiny atoms to the biggest stars. Frenkel, who became a professor at Harvard at twenty-one, now teaches at Berkeley.
Не было ни страха, ни ощущения своей значимости - исчезло. Он остался нагим - лишь плоть и кости перед лицом Господа. Я человек, - подумал. И с ироничной усмешкой вспомнил: - Без воска.
Она решила включить громкую связь. - Слушаю, Джабба. Металлический голос Джаббы заполнил комнату: - Мидж, я в главном банке данных. У нас тут творятся довольно странные вещи. Я хотел спросить… - Черт тебя дери, Джабба! - воскликнула Мидж.
Пора переходить к решительным действиям. Немец рывком открыл дверь и собрался было закричать, но Беккер его опередил. Помахав карточкой теннисного клуба Мериленда, он рявкнул: - Полиция. После чего вошел в номер и включил свет. Немец не ожидал такого оборота.
Demasiado temperano. Слишком рано. Слишком рано. Беккер беззвучно выругался.
В голосе Беккера слышались извиняющиеся нотки: - Простите, но это определенно осмысленные слова.
