By Ian Stewart

In *The arithmetic of Life*, Ian Stewart offers a desirable evaluate of the important yet little-recognized position arithmetic has performed in pulling again the curtain at the hidden complexities of the ordinary world--and how its contribution may be much more very important within the years forward. In his regularly transparent and wonderful style, Stewart explains how mathematicians and biologists have come to interact on probably the most tricky clinical difficulties that the human race has ever tackled, together with the character and starting place of lifestyles itself.
