The overall conclusion is simple: Not only giving the background necessary to pursue the matter, but doing it in such a way that a healthy ‘hands-on experience’is generated in the process. Review quote From the reviews: Gouvea has succeeded admirably in taking a topic that is not standard in the undergraduate mathematics curriculum and writing a book accessible to undergraduates that allows its reader to play with some intriguing mathematics and explore a topic which is both fun and important.
