A mind-bending excursion to the limits of science and mathematics Are some scientific problems insoluble? In Beyond Reason, internationally acclaimed math and science author A

A

Dewdney answers this question by examining eight insurmountable mathematical and scientific roadblocks that have stumped thinkers across the centuries, from ancient mathematical conundrums such as squaring the circle, first attempted by the Pythagoreans, to G del's vexing theorem, from perpetual motion to the upredictable behavior of chaotic systems such as the weather

Dewdney, PhD Ontario, Canada , was the author of Scientific American's Computer Recreations column for eight years

He has written several critically acclaimed popular math and science books, including A Mathematical Mystery Tour 0-471-40734-8 Yes, We Have No Neutrons 0-471-29586-8 and 200 of Nothing 0-471-14574-2 .
