A History of Mathematical Notations, Volumes 1-2

Voorkant
Courier Corporation, 1928 - 818 pagina's
2 Recensies
This classic study notes the first appearance of a mathematical symbol and its origin, the competition it encountered, its spread among writers in different countries, its rise to popularity, its eventual decline or ultimate survival.

Originally published in 1929 in a two-volume edition, this monumental work is presented here in one volume.
