About the Author:

Colin Beveridge cannot understand why mathematics is not the most popular subject on the planet and he spends his life trying to make it so. After a PhD from St. Andrews in Scotland, he worked on NASA's Living With a Star program before returning to the UK in 2008, where he writes, teaches and gives talks about mathematics.
