About the Author

The author is the Chancellor's Professor of Mathematics at Brown University. In his spare time, he likes to write comic books which, like this one, have nothing to do with mathematics.

More About the Author

Richard Schwartz grew up in Los Angeles. He wore only blue clothes between the ages of 7 and 11. He spent his youth obsessively playing tennis until video games distracted him. He majored in math at UCLA, got a PhD in math from Princeton, and is currently the Chancellor's Professor of Mathematics at Brown University. His research interests lie in geometry and dynamics. He likes to do mathematical experiments on the computer and then find proofs for the results he discovers.

Rich was an Invited Speaker at the 2002 International Congress of Mathematicians, a Guggenheim Fellow in 2003, a Clay Research Scholar in 2009, and Simons Fellow in 2012. He is the author of a number of books, including Spherical CR Geometry and Dehn Surgery, Outer Billiards on Kites, You Can Count on Monsters, Man Versus Dog, Unnecessary Surgery, and The Extra Toaster. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Barrington, Rhode Island. In his spare time, he listens to music, writes comic books, cycles on the bike path near his house, walks on the beach, or spends time with his family.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In "Der Mann Ohne Eigenschaften", Robert Musil spent over 2000 pages capturing the Zeitgeist of turn-of-the century Vienna. Schwartz delineates the same for our era in less than 50 pages, drawing a straight line, and a narrative arc, from our own elliptical ambivalence to its multi-sided, multi-faceted sources.
