Bridges to Infinity: The Human Side of Mathematics
Bridges to Infinity: The Human Side of Mathematics
Most of the reasons that I have written this book can be explained in terms of what reportedly happened one day in the eighteenth century when the great German mathematician Leonhard Euler confronted the eminent French scholar and atheist Denis Diderot with a spurious mathematical proof for the existence of God. Euler, it seems, accepted an...
Quaternions for Computer Graphics
Quaternions for Computer Graphics

More than 50 years ago when I was studying to become an electrical engineer, I came across complex numbers, which were used to represent out-of-phase voltages and currents using the j operator. I believe that the letter j was used, rather than i, because the latter stood for electrical current. So from the very start of my studies I...

But it is not without controversy. Indeed, some...

The Machine Question: Critical Perspectives on AI, Robots, and Ethics
The Machine Question: Critical Perspectives on AI, Robots, and Ethics

One of the enduring concerns of moral philosophy is deciding who or what is deserving of ethical consideration.
