Description
The roller coaster of romance is notoriously hard to quantify. And yet, mathematics can be a surprisingly useful tool for understanding love, as mathematician and complexity scientist Hannah Fry explained in her popular TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Conference talk. Like changing weather, stock market fluctuations, and the growth of cities, love is full of patterns, notes Fry, and in this entertaining, illustrated discussion she applies intelligent formulas to many questions pertaining to love: What is the chance of finding love, or the probability that it will last? How do online dating algorithms work? Can game theory help us decide who to approach in a bar? And at what point in your dating life should you settle down? From evaluating the best strategies for online dating to defining the nebulous concept of beauty, Fry insightfully and wittily demonstrates just how math can help us negotiate the complicated, often baffling, always interesting mysteries of love.

"A smart, snappy guide to romance that dips into mathematical models.... On-screen and on the page, Fry has a wry, chatty voice that illuminates age-old questions in brainy yet simple language."Washington Post
