About this title


This Source Book contains 75 excerpts from the writings of Western mathematicians from the thirteenth to the end of the eighteenth century. The selection has been confined to pure mathematics or to those fields of applied mathematics that had a direct bearing on the development of pure mathematics. The authors range from Al-Khwarizmi, Viete, and Oresme, to Newton, Euler, and Lagrange. The selections are grouped in chapters on arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and analysis. All the excerpts are translated into English. Some of the translations have been newly made; if a translation was already available it has been used, but in every such case it has been checked against the original and amended or corrected where it seemed necessary. The editor has taken considerable pains to put each selection in context by means of introductory comments and has explained obscure or doubtful points in footnotes wherever necessary. The Source Book should be particularly valuable to historians of science, but all who are concerned with the origins and growth of mathematics will find it interesting and useful.

Store Description

Tiber Books is an internet merchant with over 35 years of bookselling experience -- we've been offering our holdings online for nearly 20 years now. The majority of our inventory is scholarly non-fiction in both the sciences and the humanities, but we also carry an increasing selection of additional material in Americana, Art, History of Science and Technology, Regional U.S. History, Religion, and many other subjects. You can search our inventory by author and/or title. However, we also understand the need to browse by subject matter, and therefore make extensive use of Keywords in listing each of our books. You should have good results if you experiment with Keyword searches of our inventory. We also include a book's ISBN (if it has one), so if you'd like to search by ISBN, please use ABE's Advanced Search menu -- omit the dashes from the number when searching by ISBN. Enjoy browsing!
