520    "Love and Math tells the two intertwined stories of 
       mathematics and the adventure of one man in learning it. 
       The result is a story about how he became one of the 
       twenty-first century's leading mathematicians, working on 
       one of the biggest ideas to come out of mathematics in the
       last 50 years: the Langlands Program. As Frenkel proves, a
       mathematical formula can be as elegant and beautiful as a 
       painting, a poem, or a piece of music. And the process of 
       creating new mathematics is just that, an artistic pursuit
       --a deeply personal experience, which requires passion, 
       dedication, and love. In Love and Math, Frenkel shows 
       readers the aesthetic--and the truly powerful--side of 
       mathematics, and enables appreciation of the field even 
       from those who have long been terrified by it."--
