Professor at Johns Hopkins, Columbia University, and the University of Maryland, mathematician Tobias Dantzig wrote two books - Number: The Language of Science (1930) and Aspects of Science (1937). In this book he explains the foundations of mathematics with ease, and eloquently explores deeper philosophical questions that arise along the way. He describes the properties of all kinds of numbers - integers, primes, irrationals, transcendentals, and more. He explains the significance of zero, and shows that its invention has revolutionary consequences for arithmetic. He shows how the invention of symbols for use in algebra. Tobias Dantzig is the father of George Dantzig, a key figure in the development of linear programming. Cloth binding third edition. Size: 6" - 8½" 0.0. Bookseller Inventory # 272580
