John Allen Paulos cleverly scrutinizes the mathematical structures of jokes, puns, paradoxes, spoonerisms, riddles, and other forms of humor, drawing examples from such sources as Rabelais, Shakespeare, James Beattie, Ren Thom, Lewis Carroll, Arthur Koestler, W C Fields, and Woody Allen Jokes, paradoxes, riddles, and the art of non sequitur are revealed with great percJohn Allen Paulos cleverly scrutinizes the mathematical structures of jokes, puns, paradoxes, spoonerisms, riddles, and other forms of humor, drawing examples from such sources as Rabelais, Shakespeare, James Beattie, Ren Thom, Lewis Carroll, Arthur Koestler, W C Fields, and Woody Allen Jokes, paradoxes, riddles, and the art of non sequitur are revealed with great perception and insight in this illuminating account of the relationship between humor and mathematics Joseph Williams, New York Times Leave your mind alone, said a Thurber cartoon, and a really complete and convincing analysis of what humour is might spoil all jokes forever This book avoids that danger What it does describe broadly several kinds of mathematical theory and apply them to throw sidelights on how many kinds of jokes work New Scientist Many scholars nowadays write seriously about the ludicrous Some merely manage to be dull A few like Paulos are brilliant in an odd endeavor Los Angeles Times Book Review
Mathematical joke A mathematical joke is a form of humor which relies on aspects of mathematics or a stereotype of mathematicians to derive humor The humor may come from a pun, or from a double meaning of a mathematical term, or from a lay person s misunderstanding of a mathematical concept.Mathematician and author John Allen Paulos in his book Mathematics and Humor described several ways that mathematics Mathematics Books Math Books Dover Publications Mathematics Of all the technical areas in which we publish, Dover is most recognized for our magnificent mathematics list We are the home of such world class theorists as Paul J Cohen Set Theory and the Continuum Hypothesis , Alfred Tarski Undecidable Theories , Gary Chartrand Introductory Graph Theory , Hermann Weyl The Concept of a Riemann Surface , Shlomo Sternberg Definitions of mathematics Survey of leading definitions Early definitions Aristotle defined mathematics as The science of quantity. In Aristotle s classification of the sciences, discrete quantities were studied by arithmetic, continuous quantities by geometry. Auguste Comte s definition tried to explain the role of mathematics in coordinating phenomena in all other fields The science of indirect measurement.
