    The book covers fundamental issues such as the origins and function of sexual reproduction, mating behavior, human mate choice, patterns of violence in families, altruistic behavior, the evolution of brain size and the origins of language, the modular mind, and the relationship between genes and culture. Koshy's survey book Fibonacci and Lucas Numbers with Applications has a chapter on determinantal identities. Cassini's identity can be used to generate Curry's paradox invented by Curry in , a dissection of $8×8$ square "rearranged" into a $5×13$ rectangle despite $64\neq65$.
