Dr. Murphy constructs a solid foundation on the basic concepts of geometrical optics, light, and color, and then provides excellent introductory reviews of important topics in light microscopy, including contrast-enhancing techniques and advanced methodology.   Mathematics broadly interpreted is a more general microscope. It can reveal otherwise invisible worlds in all kinds of data, not only optical. For example, computed tomography can reveal a cross-section of a human head from the density of X-ray beams without ever opening the head, by using the Radon transform to infer the densities of materials at each location within the head (Hsieh ).Cited by:

But "Mathematics under microscope" is aimed not for mathematic professionals, but for people with base mathematical background and with interest to cognitive science and mathematics.

This book consists of many questions and only a few answers. These are the exciting questions about structure of mathematical concepts, basis of mathematical intuition and how mathematics reflects itself in mathematical "memes" (genes of culture).

This is very "private" by:   It is an unusual book that casts new and paradoxical light on the nature of mathematics. This book will be interesting—perhaps for different reasons—to school teachers of mathematics, to math majors at universities, to graduate students in mathematics and computer science, to research mathematicians and computer scientists, to philosophers and historians of mathematics, and to.

The next principal feature of the book is that I center my discussion of mathematics as a whole—in all its astonishing unity—around the thesis, due to Davis and Hersh [19], that mathematics is the study of mental objects with reproducible properties. In the book, the Davis–Hersh thesis.

Mathematics under the Microscope by Alexandre V. Borovik is a new book looking at mathematics, how it works, what happens in the brain when it does mathematics and, using this knowledge, discusses how it should be taught. It is the last part that particularly interests me since so little is understood in this country about mathematical education.
