Is anything truly random? Does infinity actually exist? Could we ever see into other dimensions?

In this delightful journey of discovery, David Darling and extraordinary child prodigy Agnijo Banerjee draw connections between the cutting edge of modern maths and life as we understand it, delving into the strange — would we like alien music? — and venturing out on quests to consider the existence of free will  and the fantastical future of quantum computers. Packed with puzzles and paradoxes, mind-bending concepts and surprising solutions, this is for anyone who wants life’s questions answered — even those you never thought to ask.

Go down deep enough in anything and you will find mathematics.
may struggle to grasp the true appearance of a four-dimensional cube or ‘tesseract’, though, as we’ll see, we can try to represent it in two or three dimensions. But it’s straightforward to describe the progression from square to cube to tesseract: a square has 4 vertices (corners) and 4 edges; a cube has 8 vertices, 12 edges, and 6 faces; a tesseract has 16 vertices, 32
Quantum computers, like most new upstart technologies, bring both hope and headaches. Among the latter is the possibility of cracking codes that were previously thought to be highly secure, mainly because, despite decades of research, no one has found any polynomial-time method of cracking them.
