About this deal

Lucid, surprising, and endlessly entertaining, Numbercrunch equips you with a definitive mathematician's toolkit to make sense of your world. I am not quite the intended audience- I have a maths degree- but I would say there is something here for everyone. Not to mention the things much closer to home: ever wondered when the best time is to leave a party?

Absolut empfehlenswert für jeden, der entweder privat oder im Beruf Datenzusammenhänge besser verstehen möchte. The book will be published with Heligo Books, the business and smart-thinking imprint from Bonnier Books UK.However, even in this topic, the good professor stumbles by trying to justify some of the official view points (of which he's a part of). We use Google Analytics to see what pages are most visited, and where in the world visitors are visiting from. Oliver Johnson is Professor of Information Theory and Director of the Institute for Statistical Science in the School of Mathematics.

This is a super fascinating, well-written and amusing guide to how an understanding of numbers can help us make sense of all the data/information around us. With barely an equation in sight, Numbercrunch makes a passionate case for how just a little bit more numeracy could help us all.In our hyper-modern world, we are bombarded with more facts, stats and information than ever before. An excellent, straightforward introduction to usefulness of numbers, which gets to the heart of why maths is so important to all of us. Numbercrunch is aimed at a general audience, and has been published as hardback, eBook and audiobook. Oliver Johnson reveals how mathematical thinking can help us understand the myriad data all around us.

It is a pity that most examples in the book are based on the covid pandemic only, as the title of the does not suggest that. Das Buch greift alltagsnahe Themen auf und zeigt wie mit etwas Systematik und einem praxisrelevanten mathematischen Basisverständnis der Sachverhalt rational erklärt werden kann.

Utilizing equations offers the advantage of invoking a deeper understanding of concepts that might be challenging to convey through words alone. Johnson applies careful analysis and great common sense to an extraordinary range of applications of mathematical ideas, from football to filter bubbles - explaining formal ideas with minimum technicalities, and weighing their relevance to the real world.Johnson applies careful analysis and great common sense to an extraordinary range of applications of mathematical ideas, from football to filter bubbles – explaining formal ideas with minimum technicalities, and weighing their relevance to the real world.
