       Ode to Numbers
       Poems by Sarah Glaz
       Antrim House, 2017
             
       Table of Contents


        Ode to Numbers contains poems written over a quarter of a century and inspired by mathematics and the author's life as a mathematician.
         The poems trace the story of Sarah's life from early childhood in Europe to the forty years long research and teaching career in
         mathematics in the United States. They respond, in turn, to students and topics of the courses Sarah has taught, the colleagues she has
         worked with and the research projects she has been involved in, the joys of professional travel, thepleasures and difficulties facing a
         woman pursuing a career in mathematics, and most of all, Sarah's life-long love of both mathematics and poetry.

 

         From Antrim House Press Release:


        
In Ode to Numbers Sarah Glaz has created a fascinating mixture of poetry and mathematics in which each bespeaks the other. This is
         as passionate a book as it is erudite. Sarah Glaz
moves naturally between the visceral world of strong emotions and the mathematical
         world of Commutative Rings.  Antrim House Press Release (September 20, 2017)
