Manufacturer Description

Why do card methods function? Just how can magicians do amazing tasks of mathematics psychologically? Why do stage "mind-reading" methods function? Generally, we merely accept these methods and also "magic" without recognizing that they are actually presentations of stringent laws based upon possibility, sets, number theory, topology, and also other branches of mathematics.
This is the very first book-length research study of this fascinating branch of leisure mathematics. Composed by one of the primary specialists on mathematical magic, it employs considerable historical information to recap all previous operate in this field. It is likewise an innovative examination of laws and also their exemplification, with ratings of brand-new methods, understandings, and also presentations. Lots of topological methods are detailed, and also loads of adjustment methods are aligned with mathematical legislation.
Nontechnical, detailed, and also clear, this volume contains 115 parts going over methods with cards, dice, coins, and so on; topological methods with hankies, cards, and so on; geometric vanishing impacts; presentations with pure numbers; and also loads of other subjects. You will certainly learn exactly how a Moebius strip works and also exactly how a Curry square could "verify" that the entire is not equivalent to the sum of its components.
No skill at sleight of hand is had to execute the greater than 500 methods explained considering that mathematics guarantees their success. Comprehensive examination of laws and also their application permits you to produce your own problems and also impacts.
