Gamma: Exploring Euler's Constant
Universities Press (India) Pvt. Limited, 2003 - 292 pages
It could be argued that the two most widely-used approaches to teaching mathematics, at school level and beyond, have themeselves contributed to mathematical illiteracy. There is a promising third way, and this book shows us where to find it.

Pickover's _Calculus and Pizza_ doesn't teach anywhere near enough calculus to be able to fully read this book, let me tell you. Euler's constant is the limit, as N approaches infinity, of 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + ... + 1/N - ln N (approximately 0.5772156). Consulter l'avis complet
