"Assuming only what every mathematically inclined freshman should know, this book leads the reader to an understanding of one of the most important conjectures in current number theory--whose proof is one of the Clay Mathematics Institute's million-dollar prize problems. The book is carefully and clearly written, and can be recommended without hesitation."--Peter Swinnerton-Dyer, University of Cambridge
"The Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture is one of the great insights in number theory from the twentieth century, and Ash and Gross write with care and a clear love of the subject. Elliptic Tales will have wide appeal."--Peter Sarnak, Princeton University
This is the only book about elliptic curves that I know of that is accessible to undergraduate math majors. Read morePublished 16 months ago by scoobydoomath
I am not great at analysis, but I love the adventure of math. I love the questions mathematicians ask and appreciate the simplicity of a child's curiosity hidden behind the ornate... Read morePublished 18 months ago by Thomas Adkins
This is an informative book with good numerical examples and which will aid the readers to capture the gist of the Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture.Published 21 months ago by Carlos E. Castro
Best explanation of elliptic curves I have found. Does not assume much in the way of prior knowledge. Provides motivation as well as techchnical development.Published 22 months ago by Michael D. Broido
Great little project full of good info written in nice prose. However, they spend a little too much time on some basics that are hard to imagine anybody who would enjoy this book... Read morePublished 23 months ago by ESAB83
This is a very good book and covers a lot of material including background.
Like many semi-popular math books on a topic, they sometimes explain in detail pretty simple things... Read more
I'm trying to solve this BSD-conjecture, this book gave me some sort of ideas and different points of view of this famous unsolved mathematical problem. A great book.Published on November 10, 2013 by Rodrigo Matus
I have been looking for a book about Mathematics that deals with the topics at the forefront of research of Number Theory for a long time. Read morePublished on October 4, 2013 by Petel
