Elementary Mathematics Volume 1 Arithmetic Aby Felix Klein
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:A distinguished mathematician and educator enlivens abstract discussions of arithmetic, algebra, and analysis by means of graphical and geometrically perceptive methods. His threepart treatment begins with topics associated with arithmetic, including calculating with natural numbers, the first extension of the notion of number, special properties of integers, and complex numbers. Algebrarelated subjects constitute the second part, which examines real equations with real unknowns and equations in the field of complex quantities. The final part explores elements of analysis, with discussions of logarithmic and exponential functions, the goniometric functions, and infinitesimal calculus. 1932 edition. 125 figures. Book News Annotation:This work is cited in Books for College Libraries, 3d ed. and is a reprint of the 1932 translation (from German) published by Macmillan. In this companion to Elementary Mathematics from an Advanced Standpoint: Geometry, Klein approaches topics within simple arithmetic, algebra and analysis with the same precision and rigor usually associated with higher mathematics. He begins with arithmetic, including calculating with natural numbers, the first extension of the notion of number, the special properties of integers, and complex numbers. He continues with algebra, including real equations with real unknowns, and equations in the field of complex quantities. He follows this with analysis, including logarithmic and exponential functions and calculus.
