In geometry, if I calculate the mean of a set of points, I'll find the center. This is useful. What happens if I calculate the median and are the results useful?

the median assumes that there is a ordering to all of it but there are various different ways one could order all 3D points leading to different medians.

How do you even define the median of a set of points?
You could compute the medians in each coordinate, but I'm pretty sure that will be different in different coordinate systems, so it's not very geometrically meaningful.

In the book "Hyperspace" by Michio Kaku, Kaku discusses Bernhard Riemann, number Theory, and Adrien-Marie Legendre and his book "Theory of Numbers". Does anyone know where I can find this book, or perhaps have a copy?

Recently i started Problems in Mathematical Analysis 1: Real Numbers, Sequences and Series by Kaczor Nowak. Its problems are very tough. So i need some books which have a huge amount of hard problems on sequence and series in the examples. Do you know any
