  • Résumé

Euclidean geometry has been profoundly influential for centuries, but its Fifth Postulate (which asserts that two parallel lines will never intersect) eluded all attempts to prove it. This book presents a tale of the 19th-century geniuses who solved this world's oldest unsolved math problem, sparking a disruptive scientific revolution.
