9780816054275: Mathematics Frontiers: 1950 to the Present (Pioneers in Mathematics)

Tracing the development of mathematics from a biographical standpoint, Mathematics Frontiers: 1950 to the Present profiles innovators from the second half of the 20th century who made significant discoveries in both pure and applied mathematics. From John H. Conway, who helped complete the classification of all finite groups (and invented The Game of Life board game), to Stephen Hawking, who established the mathematical basis for black holes, to Fan Chung, who developed an encoding and decoding algorithm for cell phone calls, this lively survey of contemporary minds behind the math is ideal for middle and high school students seeking resources for research or general interest.

About the Author:

Michael J. Bradley est psychologue et travaille aupres d'enfants, d'adolescents et de leurs familles dans des centres de detention, dans des agences de services sociaux et a son cabinet prive.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up–Each of these volumes covers the lives and contributions of 10 mathematicians arranged chronologically. Short biography are followed by in-depth explanations of their contributions to the field and a brief conclusion. Each entry also includes a bibliography and Web sites specific to the subject. Black-and-white reproductions, diagrams and equations, drawings, reproductions of documents, and a specialized glossary aid in understanding. Volumes include both well- and lesser known individuals from Pythagoras and Hypatia to Omar Khayyám, and John von Neumann. Tucker McElroy's A to Z of Mathematicians (Facts On File, 2005) includes 150 mathematicians but without the depth of coverage found here. Leonard C. Bruno's Math & Mathematicians (Gale, 1999) contains the biographies of 50 mathematicians and 35 articles describing mathematical principles and concepts. The Pioneers in Mathematics series contains fewer individuals but gives ample information for reports.–Ann Joslin, Fort LeBoef School District, Waterford, PA
