About the Authors
  • V. I. Arnold reveals some unexpected connections between such apparently unrelated theories as Galois fields, dynamical systems, ergodic theory, statistics, chaos and the geometry of projective structures on finite sets. The author blends experimental results with examples and geometrical explorations to make these findings accessible to a broad range of mathematicians, from undergraduate students to experienced researchers.

    • Written by one of the greatest mathematicians of our age
    • Provides a general overview suitable for mathematicians at all levels
    • Examples and explanations may be used in all applications of Galois field theory
