Professor Ian Stewart has just released his latest book 17 Equations That Changed The World with Profile Books.
Like all of his books it is simply superb. Take it as an engaging historical romp through all the amazing equations and what they have brought us and what they promise to bring in the future.
Or learn all the things that were missed in school and now seem so simple when he explains them with such clarity, enthusiasm and passion.
These 17 equations lie at the root of all our understanding and production of all the technologies and scientific advances that we now almost take for granted.
Yves de Contades interviewed the popular science legend and author and you can see the videos here.
