Über dieses Buch

This visionary and engaging book provides a mathematical perspective on the fundamental ideas of numbers, space, life, evolution, the brain and the mind. The author suggests how a development of mathematical concepts in the spirit of category theory may lead to unravelling the mystery of the human mind and the design of universal learning algorithms.

The book is divided into two parts, the first of which describes the ideas of great mathematicians and scientists, those who saw sparks of light in the dark sea of unknown. The second part, Memorandum Ergo, reflects on how mathematics can contribute to the understanding of the mystery of thought. It argues that the core of the human mind is a structurally elaborated object that needs a creation of a broad mathematical context for its understanding. Readers will discover the main properties of the expected mathematical objects within this context, called ERGO-SYSTEMS, and readers will see how these “systems” may serve as prototypes for design of universal learning computer programs.

This is a work of great, poetical insight and is richly illustrated. It is a highly attractive read for all those who welcome a mathematical and scientific way of thinking about the world.

Über die Autor*innen

Mikhail Leonidovich Gromov is a French–Russian mathematician. He is a Professor at the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques and New York University.

He is a prolific author with more than 150 scientific publications including 8 books.

Stimmen zum Buch

“The book presents a wealth of knowledge with many fascinating quotes and stories illustrated by beautiful pictures. It gives as such a lot of inspiration and explores the kind of mathematics needed to understand ergo brains. If you expect an entertaining and educating, but also technical book on modern science and mathematics, in particular in understanding the mind then this book fills the bill.” (Manfred Kerber, zbMATH 1433.00004, 2020)
