Item Description: Amsterdam :. Bert Bakker, 2002. Paperback. 561. - Uitvoerige biografie van L.E.J. Brouwer (1881-1966), de grootste wiskundige die Nederland in de eerste helft van de twintigste eeuw heeft gekend. Dirk van Dalen, kenner als geen ander van leven en werk van Brouwer, plaatst hem in de wiskundige, academische en algemeen culturele context van zijn tijd. Daarbij komen natuurlijk de topologie en het intuïtionisme, de twee terreinen waarop Brouwer baanbrekend werk heeft verricht, uitvoerig aan bod, maar niet technisch: een leek merkt wel dat hij iets mist, maar dat hindert hem niet om geboeid verder te lezen. Het geheel is een schitterend stuk intellectuele geschiedenis van Nederland, ook al doordat Brouwer zich ook buiten zijn vak manifesteerde en bijvoorbeeld contacten had met kunstenaars als Frederik van Eeden.Dutch text.

Item Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Springer, Berlin | How Mathematics is Rooted in Life | Dutch mathematician and philosopher Luitzen Egbertus Jan Brouwer belonged to a special class of genius and was one of the key players in topology. This book details of the life and work of this complex and often controversial genius. | Dirk van Dalen s biography studies the fascinating life of the famous Dutch mathematician and philosopher Luitzen Egbertus Jan Brouwer. Brouwer belonged to a special class of genius; complex and often controversial and gifted with a deep intuition, he had an unparalleled access to the secrets and intricacies of mathematics. Most mathematicians remember L.E.J. Brouwer from his scientific breakthroughs in the young subject of topology and for the famous Brouwer fixed point theorem. Brouwer s main interest, however, was in the foundation of mathematics which led him to introduce, and then consolidate, constructive methods under the name intuitionism . This made him one of the main protagonists in the foundation crisis of mathematics. As a confirmed internationalist, he also got entangled in the interbellum struggle for the ending of the boycott of German and Austrian scientists. This time during the twentieth century was turbulent; nationalist resentment and friction between formalism and intuitionism led to the Mathematische Annalen conflict ('The war of the frogs and the mice'). It was here that Brouwer played a pivotal role. The present biography is an updated revision of the earlier two volume biography in one single book. It appeals to mathematicians and anybody interested in the history of mathematics in the first half of the twentieth century. | Child and Student.- Mathematics and Mysticism.- The Dissertation.-Cantor-Schoenflies Topology.- The New Topology.- Making a Career.- The War Years.- Mathematics after the War.- Politics and Mathematics.- The Breakthrough.- The Fathers of Dimension.- Progress, Recognition, and Frictions.- From Berlin to Vienna.- The Three Battles.- The Thirties.- War and Occupation.- Post-War Events.- The Restless Emeritus. | Format: Hardback | Language/Sprache: english | 1378 gr | 242x175x38 mm | 875 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9781447146155
