Geometry of Grief
In this profound and hopeful book, a mathematician and celebrated teacher shows how mathematics may help all of us-even the math-averse-to understand and cope with grief. We all know the euphoria of intellectual epiphany-the thrill of sudden understanding. But coupled with that excitement is a sense of loss: a moment of epiphany can never be repeated. In 'Geometry of Grief', mathematician Michael Frame draws on a career's worth of insight-including his work with pioneer of fractal geometry Benoit Mandelbrot-and a gift for rendering the complex accessible as he delves into this twinning of understanding and loss.
