Storia della matematica

Dec 16, Emma added it. Must re-read for a proper review. Come scrive nella prefazione il matematico Lucio Lombardo Radice: I know a book like this can’t go too in-depth, but an in-depth look into one proof or problem of the greatest minds wouldn’t be too much.

Interesting but tough to just sit down and enjoy. I know it is old, but I’ve read older math books that were far more interesting. My husband bought this book as a Christmas present for me, and I felt obligated to read it. His theorems are, every one of them, valid to this day.

Presupposes a knowledge of college level mathematics but is accessible to the average reader through its consistent treatment of mathematical structure with a strict adherence to historical perspective and detail.

Storia della mstematica by Carl B. Worth reading atleast twice. Each chapter also ends with a short Bibliography, mentioning books and articles dellx further exploration. Preview — Storia della matematica by Carl B.

Del,a 03, Jason Leary rated it liked it. Purchased near the Penn campus at a lovely used bookstore apparently tended to by a lovely grey-haired couple think: Uno di quei libri che merita l’articolo davanti: The book is, after all, a history book, and was definitely meant to relate history, not math itself.

The mathematics are used to support the history. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

The Biography of a Dangerous Idea Seife are all superior in how it presents its material. This book is really interesting, but it takes a while stoeia me to read the notation.

Oct 25, Marco E. Libro altamente consigliato, da leggere con calma, magari per hobby come faccio io. I think that counts as reading it. May 11, Jason rated it it was ok.

Piccola ma pure sempre rilevante la parte dedicata a matematici non occidentali cinesi, arabi e delka Francesco Colucci marked it as to-read Nov 10, For instance, it shows that certain theorems were known to the oriental nations like China and India, and that a lot of things had to be rediscovered after the whole rigmarole with the fall of empires and nations and the destruction of ancient repositories of knowledge.

Very enlightening and entertaining, a pleasure to read and share with the backstage details of math thinkers and their lives and motives brings math down to reality and yet celebrates the imagination and creative of so many thinkers. One of the editions shown on GR warns that matejatica with college level math is recommended for readers. There is no enthusiasm for the topic at hand. The first few are general questions which ask the reader to organize the information in the chapter into the historical framework; then there are questions requiring proofs or mathematical operations to get answers; and finally more advanced exercises.


Storia della matematica by Carl B. Boyer

PaperbackOscar Saggipages. There are revised references and bibliographies and revised and expanded chapters on the nineteeth and twentieth centuries. IL Boyer, il libro perfetto per chiunque si voglia avvicinare alla Storia della Matematica. There are exercises and problems presented at the end of chapters, which the author has divided into three categories: Refresh and try again. There are little to no proofs and this really disappointed me.

An index is at book’s end. There’s a web site which appears to provide a browsable representation of the book, perhaps not very convenient to use, but which can certainly show an interested party the detailed table of contents, and looks searchable.

Carl Boyer – Wikipedia

Books by Carl B. In my first edition there are no answers to these provided. I know this was written inbut the ancient and prehistory sections are not as deep or comprehensive as they could be.

I am certain that I read the English version of this book as part of my History of Mathematics class while doing my MAT in secondary mathematics. Basically, with every big name or thought in mathematics, the book is there, offering an opinion on stuff.
