Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is a collection of inter-connected topics in areas of mathematics which particularly interest the author, ranging over the two millennia from the work of Archimedes, who died in the year 212 BC, to the "Werke" of Gauss, who was born in 1777. The book is intended for those who love mathematics, including undergraduate students of mathematics, more experienced students and the vast unseen host of amateur mathematicians. It will also be a useful source of material for those who teach mathematics. The author, George Phillips, is a Scot who has lectured and researched in mathematics, mainly at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, but also in many other universities in the UK, the USA, Canada, Brazil, Portugal, Italy, the Czech Republic, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Israel, Malaysia, Singapore, China, and Australia.
