Symmetry and the Monster [PDF]

by Mark Ronan
I loved this book!I tried to explain to a class I was teaching on Symmetry that I could not put it down.It was almost like a detective novel!The fact that it was probably the seventh or eighth book on symmetry I had read by then makes this all the more surprising and shows how well the author does his job.

The book describes how the largest ever mathematical proof was solved by hundreds of mathematicians over many, many pages of proofs.Sounds dry?It's not!This history goes back to the beginnings of group theory, and runs all the way through to quite recent times.It includes some very interesting discussions of the personalities involved.

Highly recommended!
