Sloane's Gap... and some books



Haven't featured a video from Numberphile for quite awhile, so I'll remedy that right now… James Grime on the interesting "Sloane's Gap" and the OEIS here:




Meanwhile, the unpredictable Clifford Pickover is out with his latest offering, "The Book of Black" -- who'd-a-thunk-it! an entire book on, well, see for yourself:

More to my interests is a new book entitled "The Outer Limits of Reason" by Noson Yanofsky:
