A History of Mathematical Notations

A History of Mathematical Notations Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. The author's coverage of obsolete notations — and what we can learn from them — is as comprehensive as those which have survived and still enjoy favor. Originally published in 1929 in a two-volume edition, this monumental work is presented here in one volume.

Book News Annotation:

**** A reprint, in one volume, of the work originally published by Open Court Publishing Co., in 1928 and 1929. Cited in BCL3.
