MATHEMATICS: A Curious History


MATHEMATICS: A Curious History

JOEL LEVY    Book Number: 89690    Product format: Paperback

From early number concepts to chaos theory, the book opens new doors to the amazing world of maths, telling the story from an historical perspective. It shows how mathematical science advanced through the discoveries of the Ancient Babylonians, Egyptians and Greeks, the great scholars of medieval Islam and Europe, and the Renaissance and the birth of the Scientific Revolution. From the simplest concepts of numbers and arithmetic, geometry and algebra, trigonometry and calculus, right through to the infinity and chaos theory, in an accessible and non-technical language we meet the extraordinary characters who made great leaps in our understanding of mathematical concepts and theorems. From Pythagoras and Archimedes to Fibonacci and Fermat, Godel and Turing. Very nice layout with hundreds of colour illustrations and diagrams and clear headers and useful glossary. 22 x 18cm softback, 192pp.
