"What makes Gardner so attractive is his ease in exploring deep principles . . . and making them obtainable to the yet nontechnical reader. it is a designated expertise and not anyone has ever displayed it relatively in addition to he does." — Los Angeles Times
"Absorbing; enlightening; lucid; witty; creative. An exemplar of technological know-how writing at its very best." — American Mathematical Monthly
A sizeable revision of Martin Gardner's previous recognized paintings on replicate symmetry and asymmetry, The New Ambidextrous Universe takes readers on a rare trip. With Gardner’s counsel, they discover the 2 primary medical discoveries of the previous century: the uneven DNA helix and the overthrow of parity (left-right symmetry) in particle physics. alongside the way in which, scholars will locate soaking up and thought-provoking remedies of a few of the private mysteries in sleek physics.
Author of greater than 60 books, Martin Gardner has prompted and encouraged generations of scientists, students, and different readers, in particular people with an curiosity in arithmetic. He originated Scientific American's well known Mathematical video games column, which he wrote from 1956 till his retirement from the journal 3 a long time later. This republication of his revised version of an prior paintings includes a new appendix of notes and corrections.
