Some brief overview of this book

Sophie Germain overcame gender stigmas and a lack of formal education yet proved, after Euler, that for all prime exponents n less than 100 Fermat's Last Theorem holds. Hidden behind a man's name, her brilliance as mathematician was first discovered by three of the greatest scholars of the eighteenth century¿ Lagrange, Gauss, and Legendre. In Sophie's Diary, Germain comes Sophie Germain overcame gender stigmas and a lack of formal education yet proved, after Euler, that for all prime exponents n less than 100 Fermat's Last Theorem holds.

Hidden behind a man's name, her brilliance as mathematician was first discovered by three of the greatest scholars of the eighteenth century¿ Lagrange, Gauss, and Legendre. In Sophie's Diary, Germain comes to life through a fictionalized journal that intertwines mathematics with historical descriptions of the brutal events that took place in Paris between 1789 and 1793. This format provides a plausible perspective of how a young Sophie could have learned mathematics on her own-both fascinated by numbers and eager to master tough subjects without a teacher's guidance.

Her passion for mathematics is integrated into her personal life as an escape from societal outrage. Sophie's Diary is suitable for a variety of readers¿both young and old, mathematicians and novices¿who will be inspired and enlightened on a field of study made easy as is told through the intellectual and personal struggles of an exceptional young woman.
