What Einstein Got Wrong
 By: Dan Hooper, The Great Courses
 Narrated by: Dan Hooper
 Length: 5 hrs and 42 mins
 Original Recording

Overall

Performance

Story
These 12 halfhour lectures are about what Einstein got wrong. He may have kindled a scientific revolution with his famous theory of relativity and his proof that atoms and light quanta exist, but he balked at accepting the most startling implications of these theories  such as the existence of black holes, the big bang, gravity waves, and mindbendingly strange phenomena in the quantum realm. This course by research physicist Dan Hooper of the University of Chicago assumes no background in science and uses very little math.

A Most Elegant Equation
 Euler’s Formula and the Beauty of Mathematics

 Narrated by: Sean Pratt
 Length: 5 hrs and 2 mins

Performance

Story
Bertrand Russell wrote that mathematics can exalt "as surely as poetry". This is especially true of one equation: ei(pi) + 1 = 0, the brainchild of Leonhard Euler, the Mozart of mathematics. More than two centuries after Euler's death, it is still regarded as a conceptual diamond of unsurpassed beauty. Called Euler's identity, or God's equation, it includes just five numbers but represents an astonishing revelation of hidden connections.

Einstein's Relativity and the Quantum Revolution: Modern Physics for NonScientists, 2nd Edition
 By: Richard Wolfson, The Great Courses
 Narrated by: Richard Wolfson
 Length: 12 hrs and 20 mins

Overall

Performance

Story
"It doesn't take an Einstein to understand modern physics," says Professor Wolfson at the outset of these 24 lectures on what may be the most important subjects in the universe: relativity and quantum physics. Both have reputations for complexity. But the basic ideas behind them are, in fact, simple and comprehensible by anyone. These dynamic and illuminating lectures begin with a brief overview of theories of physical reality starting with Aristotle and culminating in Newtonian or "classical" physics.

The Golden Ratio
 The Story of Phi, the World's Most Astonishing Number
 By: Mario Livio
 Narrated by: Mel Foster
 Length: 10 hrs and 13 mins
 Unabridged

Overall

Performance

Story
Throughout history, thinkers from mathematicians to theologians have pondered the mysterious relationship between numbers and the nature of reality. In this fascinating book, Mario Livio tells the tale of a number at the heart of that mystery: phi, or 1.6180339887.... This curious mathematical relationship, widely known as "The Golden Ratio", was discovered by Euclid more than 2,000 years ago. Since then it has shown a propensity to appear in the most astonishing variety of places.

The Modern Scholar: Mathematics Is Power
 By: Professor William Bloch
 Narrated by: Professor William Bloch
 Length: 4 hrs and 56 mins
 Original Recording

Overall

Performance

Story
William Goldbloom Bloch is a respected professor of mathematics at Wheaton College. This intriguing lecture series, Mathematics Is Power, delves into both the history of mathematics and its impact on people’s everyday lives from a nonmathematician’s perspective. Bloch first examines the history of mathematics and ageold questions pertaining to logic, truth, and paradoxes. Moving on to a discussion of how mathematics impacts the modern world, Bloch also explores abstract permutations such as game theory, cryptography, and voting theory.

Mysticism and Mathematics
 By: Bertrand Russell
 Narrated by: Jim Raposa
 Length: 1 hr and 38 mins

Overall

Performance

Story
Although Bertrand Russell did most of his early work (along with his mentor and colleague Alfred North Whitehead) in mathematics, he had an enormously wide range of interests  from politics to sex education for the young. The following two essays  "Mysticism and Logic" and "Mathematics and the Metaphysicians"  provide listeners with a glimpse into Russell's thinking and, in turn, illuminates us about these deep subjects.

Overflowing With Needless Examples & Anecdotes
 By Richard on 042217
Publisher's Summary
Number theory is an important branch of pure mathematics because it contains many basic concepts that are used to build up complex concepts of pure mathematics. One who is looking for a breakthrough in broad term mathematics is suggested to start from this theory. It will clear up basic concepts so it will be surprisingly easy to understand complex concepts. This book describes all the basic concepts without going in too deep. So one can use this basic knowledge to understand complex concepts easily and effectively.
