    MSC: Primary 01;

    Vladimir Arnold, an eminent mathematician of our time, is known both for his mathematical results, which are many and prominent, and for his strong opinions, often expressed in an uncompromising and provoking manner. His dictum that “Mathematics is a part of physics where experiments are cheap” is well known.

    This book consists of two parts: selected articles by and an interview with Vladimir Arnold, and a collection of articles about him written by his friends, colleagues, and students. The book is generously illustrated by a large collection of photographs, some never before published. The book presents many a facet of this extraordinary mathematician and man, from his mathematical discoveries to his daredevil outdoor adventures.

    Readership

    Mathematicians of all levels: teachers, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students, and other scientists interested in the recent history and ideology of mathematics.
