Mathematics is the art of logical story-telling and its creations exist only in the mind. Yet it's amazing how useful scientists have found these imaginative constructs in trying to understand the material universe. This book will take you on a journey to the extreme regions, just before the point where logic breaks down. It discusses the impossible, the infinite, the unimaginable, the uncomputable and the undecidable. Our motivation will be that of an explorer.
