Eugenia Cheng: ‘How To Bake Pi’

Town Hall Seattle says
From dividing a cake between siblings and baking custard to the science behind vegan brownies and lasagna, mathematics is everywhere in the kitchen. Math professor Eugenia Cheng’s How to Bake Pi explores basic math concepts — then takes it to the next level by connecting these common equations to overall category theories of the subject. Called a “charming new book” (How Not to Be Wrong author Jordan Ellenberg), her work expertly explains the ways math is designed to make the hard things in life a piece of cake–sometimes literally. She’ll open the world of math for everyday use, exploring what it is, how it works, and why everyone should care about it.
