The Guardian

Games of Chance, by the Irish-Canadian Gerard Beirne (Oberon, Ottawa, no price given), is a collection of poems based on – or should we say entangled with – mathematics… this one is also different. It has a lot to say… It’s more like meditations on several aspects of mathematics – rotation transformations, thermal expansion, probability and Pi. It’s not like any poetry one has seen before and it can be read with appreciation by non-mathematicians.
