Penrose is Great

We have started a reading Roger Penrose: The Road to Reality which so far is a subperp book.  Normally we Skype-meet Tuesday morning AM 6.30 for 60-90 minutes.  We normally cover 20-40 pages per session.  In coming week we will have done 5 chapters:

1 The roots of science

2 An ancient theorem and a modern question

3 Kinds of number in the physical world

4 Magical complex numbers

5 Geometry of logarithms, powers, and roots

In Jotun’s view the book is great balance for formulas, intuitive explanations and historical backgrounds.
