  "Readers of the books [Fearless Symmetry and Elliptic Tales] will not need this review to be talked into buying 'Summing it Up by the same authors, Avner Ash and Robert Gross Like the other volumes it takes the readers on a guided tour through parts of modern number theory by starting with very elementary notions."/5(10). Fearless Symmetry Exposing the Hidden Patterns of Numbers (Book): Ash, Avner: Mathematicians solve equations, or try to. But sometimes the solutions are not as interesting as the beautiful symmetric patterns that lead to them.

But sometimes the solutions are not as interesting as the beautiful symmetric patterns that lead to them. Written in a friendly style for a general. It makes the 'fearful' symmetry simple and accessible, and the burning tigers lively and human. An excellent rendition and an outstanding achievement."—T. D. Lee, Nobel Prize–winning physicist "To a layman like myself, totally unversed in modern theoretical physics, Zee's book comes as an illumination.

The best by far was Ash and Gross' "Fearless Symmetry". This book is very beautiful. It sustains a nice level of rigor while being approachable by those who aren't professionals. Additionally, it weaves the tale of one of the most beautiful recent stories in mathematics. Everyone I know of who have read the book have found it wonderful. Fearless Symmetry. By Chan, Paul.

Fearless Symmetry is a book about detecting hidden patterns, about finding definitions that clarify, about the study of numbers that has entranced some of our great thinkers for thousands of years.

It is a book that takes on number theory in a way that a nonmathematician can follow-systematically but without a barrage of technicalities/5(36).

Written in a friendly style for a general audience, Fearless Symmetry is the first popular math book to discuss these elegant and mysterious patterns and the ingenious techniques mathematicians use to uncover them.

It is a book that takes on number theory in a way that a nonmathematician can follow-systematically but without a barrage of technicalities. The first popular book to address representation theory and reciprocity laws, Fearless Symmetry focuses on how mathematicians solve equations and prove theorems.

It discusses rules of math and why they are just as important as those in any games one might play. Written in a friendly style for a general audience, Fearless Symmetry is the first popular math book to discuss these elegant and mysterious patterns and the ingenious techniques mathematicians use to uncover them.

Hidden symmetries were first discovered nearly two hundred years ago by 5/5(1). Fearless Symmetry "began as an expository article for professional mathematicians about the proof of Fermat's Last Theorem" but is, as its back-cover blurb claims, "written in a friendly style for a general audience".

This seems like a contradiction, and indeed Fearless Symmetry is somewhat unbalanced. The book, Fearless Symmetry: Exposing the Hidden Patterns of Numbers by Avner Ash and Robert Gross, showed up in the mail several days later, and I read it very quickly.

That was three weeks ago, and I still am not sure what I think of the book. Unlike most math books, Fearless symmetry is well written. Key concepts from prior chapters are reemphasized in subsequent chapters so readers are less likely to get lost.
