The Mathematics of Love

Patterns, Proofs, and the Search for the Ultimate Equation

Simon & Schuster, 2015

The roller coaster of romance is hard to quantify; defining how lovers might feel from a set of simple equations is impossible. But that doesn’t mean that maths has nothing to offer.

This book pulls back the curtain to reveal the patterns in love that can be explained through maths and offers  up a valuable new perspective on matters of the heart: What’s the chance of us finding love? What’s the chance that it will last? How does online dating work, exactly? When should you settle down? How can you avoid divorce? When is it right to compromise? Can game theory help us decide whether or not to call?
