David Darling and Agnijo Banerjee reveal the mathematics at the farthest reaches of our world – from its role in the plots of novels to how animals employ numerical skills to survive. Along the way they explore what makes a genius, why a seemingly simple problem can confound the best and brightest for decades, and what might be the great discovery of the twenty-first century. As Bertrand Russell once said, ‘mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty’. Banerjee and Darling make sure we see it right again.
Agnijo Banerjee is one of the world’s most outstanding young mathematicians and a former student of Darling’s. At the age of thirteen he attained the highest possible score on Mensa’s IQ test and in 2018 he came joint first in the International Mathematical Olympiad, becoming the first person from the UK to obtain a perfect score in 24 years. He was born in Kolkata, India, but has spent most of his life in Scotland. He is now continuing his studies at Trinity College, Cambridge.
