Augen, so heißt es, sind das Fenster zur Seele. Doch wenn Jem in fremde Augen blickt, sieht sie eine Zahl. Und die ist unauslöschlich. Denn die Zahl ist ein Datum. Der Tag, an dem ihr Gegenüber sterben wird. Diese Gewissheit hat Jem seit dem Tod ihrer Mutter. Deshalb meidet sie Menschen. Ist am liebsten allein. Bis sie Spinne kennenlernt - und mit ihm das Leben. Jem ist glücklich, zum ersten Mal. Doch als die beiden zum Riesenrad, dem London Eye fahren, passiert es - um sie herum haben alle dieselbe Zahl. Jem weiß: Etwas Furchtbares wird passieren. Heute. Hier. Fluchtartig verlassen Spinne und sie das Gelände. Und lösen damit eine Kettenreaktion aus. Spinne und Jem werden zu Gejagten. Von der Polizei, den Medien, den Menschen. Und Spinnes Todestag rückt näher und näher ...
A book about numbers sounds rather dull. This one is not. Instead it is a lively story about one thread of mathematics-the concept of "number" told by eight authors and organized into a historical narrative that leads the reader from ancient Egypt to the late twentieth century. It is a story that begins with some of the simplest ideas of mathematics and ends with some of the most complex. It is a story that mathematicians, both amateur and professional, ought to know. Why write about numbers? Mathematicians have always found it diffi cult to develop broad perspective about their subject. While we each view our specialty as having roots in the past, and sometimes having connec tions to other specialties in the present, we seldom see the panorama of mathematical development over thousands of years. Numbers attempts to give that broad perspective, from hieroglyphs to K-theory, from Dedekind cuts to nonstandard analysis.

Author: Origen,,Thomas P. Scheck,Christopher A. Hall
Publisher: InterVarsity Press
Origen was one of the most influential pre-Nicene church fathers, whose exegetical method shaped much of subsequent interpretation of the Old Testament. Some of his theological speculations were condemned in the 6th century, but his influence as a Christian scholar and Old Testament exegete remain undiminished. This book offers a fresh, contemporary translation of Origen's 28 homilies on the book of Numbers.
Very little in our human experience is truly comparable to the immensely crowded and bustling interior of a cell. Biological numeracy provides a new kind of understanding of the cellular world. This book brings together up-to-date quantitative data from the vast biological literature and uses the powerful tool of "back of the envelope" estimates to reveal fresh perspectives and insights from numbers commonly encountered in cell biology. Readers gain a feeling for the sizes, concentrations, energies, and rates that characterize the lives of cellsÑ thereby shedding new light on the microscopic realm.

Under the guidelines of the FOTL series, the primary task of this commentary is not to reconstruct the historical growth of the book of Numbers itself. In this commentary, the growth process is presupposed in principle, but referred to in specifics with restraint. The form-critical interpretation reveals the active involvement of many generations of Israelite narrators and writers in the ongoing adaptation of their most important ancient story, and their conceptualization of its significance for their own and for future generations. - Publisher.
Ashley's study on the book of Numbers is part of The New International Commentary on the Old Testament. Like its companion series on the New Testament, this commentary devotes considerable care to achieving a balance between technical information and homiletic-devotional interpretation.
Numbers, Information and Complexity is a collection of about 50 articles in honour of Rudolf Ahlswede. His main areas of research are represented in the three sections, `Numbers and Combinations', `Information Theory (Channels and Networks, Combinatorial and Algebraic Coding, Cryptology, with the related fields Data Compression, Entropy Theory, Symbolic Dynamics, Probability and Statistics)', and `Complexity'. Special attention was paid to the interplay between the fields. Surveys on topics of current interest are included as well as new research results. The book features surveys on Combinatorics about topics such as intersection theorems, which are not yet covered in textbooks, several contributions by leading experts in data compression, and relations to Natural Sciences are discussed.
How to Excel at Math and Science (Even If You Flunked Algebra)
Author: Barbara Oakley
The companion book to COURSERA®'s wildly popular massive open online course "Learning How to Learn" Whether you are a student struggling to fulfill a math or science requirement, or you are embarking on a career change that requires a new skill set, A Mind for Numbers offers the tools you need to get a better grasp of that intimidating material. Engineering professor Barbara Oakley knows firsthand how it feels to struggle with math. She flunked her way through high school math and science courses, before enlisting in the army immediately after graduation. When she saw how her lack of mathematical and technical savvy severely limited her options—both to rise in the military and to explore other careers—she returned to school with a newfound determination to re-tool her brain to master the very subjects that had given her so much trouble throughout her entire life. In A Mind for Numbers, Dr. Oakley lets us in on the secrets to learning effectively—secrets that even dedicated and successful students wish they’d known earlier. Contrary to popular belief, math requires creative, as well as analytical, thinking. Most people think that there’s only one way to do a problem, when in actuality, there are often a number of different solutions—you just need the creativity to see them. For example, there are more than three hundred different known proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem. In short, studying a problem in a laser-focused way until you reach a solution is not an effective way to learn. Rather, it involves taking the time to step away from a problem and allow the more relaxed and creative part of the brain to take over. The learning strategies in this book apply not only to math and science, but to any subject in which we struggle. We all have what it takes to excel in areas that don't seem to come naturally to us at first, and learning them does not have to be as painful as we might think! From the Trade Paperback edition.
