Men of Mathematics, Paperback

Men of Mathematics Paperback



Here is the classic, much-read introduction to the craft and history of mathematics by E.T.

Bell, a leading figure in mathematics in America for half a century. "Men of Mathematics" accessibly explains the major mathematics, from the geometry of the Greeks through Newton's calculus and on to the laws of probability, symbolic logic, and the fourth dimension.

In addition, the book goes beyond pure mathematics to present a series of engrossing biographies of the great mathematicians -- an extraordinary number of whom lived bizarre or unusual lives.

Finally, "Men of Mathematics" is also a history of ideas, tracing the majestic development of mathematical thought from ancient times to the twentieth century.

This enduring work's clear, often humorous way of dealing with complex ideas makes it an ideal book for the non-mathematician.
