Mit Beginn des Börsenbooms in den 80er Jahren begann der große Traum der Elite-Absolventen renommierter Universitäten: sich im Händlerraum einer großen Investmentgesellschaft der Wall Street vom "Geek" - einem der unterbezahlten, ausgebeuteten Laufburschen - zum bewunderten Star-Händler hochzuarbeiten. Michael Lewis hat die hektische Atmosphäre eines modernen Goldrausches miterlebt. Niemals zuvor haben so viele so unerfahrene 24-Jährige in so kurzer Zeit so viel Geld verdient, wie Lewis und seine Kollegen in den 80er Jahren in New York und London. Niemals zuvor gab es zu dem Marktgesetz, dass jemand nicht mehr herausbekommen wird, als er hineingibt, derart phantastische Ausnahmen. Michael Lewis, ehemaliger Wall-Street-Insider, gewährt in einer authentischen Story tiefe Einblicke hinter die Kulissen des Börsengeschehens. Ein bis zur letzten Seite packendes Buch, das nichts von seiner Aktualität eingebüßt hat.

Eine Reise durch die aufregende Welt der Mathematik

Author: Alex Bellos

Publisher: eBook Berlin Verlag

ISBN: 3827078083

Category: Mathematics

Page: 480

Erinnern wir uns nicht alle mit Schrecken an die ratlosen Momente vor der Tafel im Matheunterricht? Mit Kurvendiskussionen und Dreisatz dürften jedenfalls nur wenige Spaß und Spannung verbinden... Bis jetzt! Denn nun wagt sich Alex Bellos in den Kaninchenbau der Mathematik: in das Reich von Geometrie und Algebra, von Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung, Statistik und logischen Paradoxa. Auf der anderen Seite des Erdballs, am Amazonas, zählen die Mitglieder des Indianerstammes der Munduruku nur bis fünf und halten die Vorstellung, dass dies nicht genügen solle, für reichlich lächerlich. Bei uns in Deutschland dagegen finden jährlich die Meisterschaften der besten Kopfrechner der Welt statt - 2010 wurde in Magdeburg eine elfjährige Inderin zur Nummer eins unter den "Mathleten" gekürt. Die Mathe-Weltmeisterin unter den Tieren ist hingegen die Schimpansin Ai, die Alex Bellos im japanischen Inuyama aufspürt und über deren Rechenkünste er nur staunen kann. Auch wenn er von den bahnbrechenden Überlegungen Euklids erzählt oder erklärt, warum man in Japan seine Visitenkarten keinesfalls zu Dodekaedern falten sollte - Bellos führt uns durch das wahrhaft erstaunliche Reich der Zahlen und bringt uns eine komplexe Wissenschaft spielerisch nahe. Mit seiner Mischung aus spannender Reportage, Wissenschaftsgeschichte und mathematischen Kabinettstückchen erbringt er souverän den Beweis, dass die Gleichung Mathematik = Langeweile eindeutig nicht wahr ist. Quod erat demonstrandum.
