|The prize-winning essays in this
book address the fascinating but sometimes uncomfortable relationship between
physics and mathematics. Is
mathematics merely another natural science? Or is it the result of human
creativity? Does physics simply wear mathematics like a costume, or is math the
lifeblood of physical reality?
The nineteen wide-ranging, highly imaginative and often
entertaining essays are enhanced versions of the prize-winning entries to the
FQXi essay competition "Trick or Truth", which attracted over 200 submissions.
