Editorial Review Product Description These lectures represent a pioneering investigation by the author. Basing his research on prior studies by Riemann, Kirchhoff, and Volterra, he extends and improves Volterra's work, applying its theories relating to spherical and cylindrical waves to all normal hyperbolic equations. Topics include the general properties of Cauchy's problem, the fundamental formula and the elementary solution, more. 1923 edition. |

A fascinating biography of a great scientist The chapters about Hadamard's work in mathematical physicscontains a lot of untraditional, interesting and almost unknown material.It is hard to find elsewhere such a complete and clearly written survey ofthe history ofthe disproval of several "obvious" hypotheses. The textis tastefully mixed with illustrations and the occasional anecdote makes ita quite entertaining read. I can higly recommend it to anybody, fromundergraduate students to high-level professionals. ... Read more |

Editorial Review Product Description The roots of creativity for Hadamard lie not in consciousness, but in the long unconscious work of incubation, and in the unconscious aesthetic selection of ideas that thereby pass into consciousness. His discussion of this process comprises a wide range of topics, including the use of mental images or symbols, visualized or auditory words, "meaningless" words, logic, and intuition. Among the important documents collected is a letter from Albert Einstein analyzing his own mechanism of thought. Customer Reviews (3)
The Psychology of Invention in the Mathematical Field
The Psychology of Math The book is short enough that if the subject interests you, it is worth your time. The text is also published under the title "The Psychology of Invention in the Mathematical Field."
A study of the mental workings of some great mathematicians Most of his respondents were mathematicians (and he limited his correspondence to the best minds in the field), but he did get information from several other fields, and cites data about physicists (a letter from Einstein forms another appendix), chemists, physiologists, metaphysicians, and so on.What he is trying to examine is a slippery subject, perhaps best explained by a quote.Here is a discussion of Sidgwick, an economist: "His reasonings on economic questions were almost always accompanied by images, and the images were often curiously arbitrary and sometimes almost undecipherably symbolic.For example, it took him a long time to discover that an odd symbolic image which accompanied the word 'value' was a faint, partial image of a man putting something on a scale." Hadamard gives his own mental images that accompany his following through the steps of Euclid's famous proof of the infinitude of primes.I won't reproduce that here for space reasons, but the contrast with Sidgwick's--and with other reports of mental activity--is fascinating.Many other examples are given, from Mozart to Polya to Galton to Poincare. Hadamard makes it clear that language and thought are not the same thing, contrary to a commonly expressed view among linguists.He cites Max Muller's comments equating thought and language, and acknowledges that for Muller it may be so, but convincingly demonstrates, by quoting numerous other mathematicians, that it is not true for everyone.The further conclusion, that the process of creative thought, while following similar patterns in similar discipline, can vary dramatically, is as far as Hadamard can go with the data he has. One other note: this book was originally titled "The Psychology of Invention in the Mathematical Field" and is available under that title from Amazon, published by Dover Books.It's not immediately clear from the Amazon page that this is so.The Dover edition is substantially cheaper. A fascinating and informative book. ... Read more |
