Finding Zero: A Mathematician's Odyssey to Uncover the Origins of Numbers

By Amir D. Aczel

The invention of numerals may be the best abstraction the human brain has ever created. nearly every little thing in our lives is electronic, numerical, or quantified. the tale of the way and the place we acquired those numerals, which we so depend upon, has for millions of years been shrouded in secret. Finding Zero is an event crammed saga of Amir Aczel's lifelong obsession: to discover the unique assets of our numerals. Aczel has doggedly crisscrossed the traditional global, scouring dusty, moldy texts, move analyzing so-called students who provided wildly differing units of proof, and finally penetrating deep right into a Cambodian jungle to discover a definitive evidence. the following, he's taking the reader alongside for the trip.

The background starts with the early Babylonian cuneiform numbers, via the later Greek and Roman letter numerals. Then Aczel asks the most important query: the place do the numbers we use this day, the so-called Hindu-Arabic numerals, come from? it's this seek that leads him to discover uncharted territory, to move on a grand quest into India, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and eventually into the wilds of Cambodia. There he's blown away to discover the earliest zero―the keystone of our whole approach of numbers―on a crumbling, vine-covered wall of a seventh-century temple embellished with eaten-away erotic sculptures. whereas in this odyssey, Aczel meets a number of interesting characters: teachers looking for fact, jungle trekkers trying to find experience, unusually sincere politicians, shameless smugglers, and treacherous archaeological thieves―who ultimately display the place our numbers come from.
