"In this book, the author explores the singular imagination of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson - known to millions around the world as Lewis Carroll - the creator of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Lewis Carroll in Numberland shows how this incredible mind was not limited to the exuberant fantasy and wordplay of his children's books, which also brim with mathematical allusions - arithmetical, geometrical, logical and mechanical." "Robin Wilson's celebration of Dodgson's mathematical achievements reveals that his work in numbers went far beyond the purely academic. We are taken inside the mind of a man who turned his mathematical genius to the study of voting patterns, to the design of tennis tournaments and even to the prolific creation and popularization of imaginative numerical puzzles."--BOOK JACKET.
