User Review - Flag as inappropriate

"Religiously the people who are HINDU fallow the path of zero means indication of the symbol ZERO as they concentrate their mind at centre of that path at TEMPLE and finally spin around himself or herself after that they worship the God by fallowing the path and them self they try to establish the respectable, honourable and try to find relationships around them"
Planets and planatory motion --------> Time as a function of seconds, minits, hours, days, months, years, decades, centuries etc., under some invariance of symbol of zero. Wish to predict the future under this invariance, for example in science and technology the people calling(understand) ANGULAR MOMENTA(the momentum of concerned physical object by angular invariance i.e., Pi, 2Pi, 3Pi etc. )

Review: Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea

User Review  - Bob Byrne - Goodreads

An interesting history of mathematics. Zero is an important number. Seife uses it to introduce the reader to many other interesting numbers. I want to understand non-Euclidean geometry. I want to understand Riemann's geometry and abstract algebra. I guess I need to do more reading. Read full review

Interesting read. Most surprising the representation of complex numbers as points on a globe. The physics part at the end seemed a bit far fetched. Read full review

This is fascinating. The proof that 1=0 is elegant, and a perfect example of "find the error" in algebra. Read full review
