A Gem in Modern Math
A great history book! The most pleasing feature about this book is that it is a fine balance between the mathematical ideas and the lives of the mathematicians. Best of all, it paints a sympathetic history of the times in which the discoveries were made. The use of anecdotes and "little" events in the lives of the men and women really brings to life both the subjects and their work. Although my particular favourite sections are on the achievements of Euler, Gauss, Lagrange, d'Alambert, Ricci, Levi Civita, and Riemann, the book is truly an expansive landscape  there is coverage of virtually all the greats from the 16th century onwards. There are numerous examples from which to learn the basics of the mathematics. For instance, the sections on the history of the calculus are interwoven with simple, yet lucid examples. Equally, the more complex ideas like integral equations and partial differential equations are illustrated by examples drawn from the physical world. All this makes the book worthwhile  it DOES NOT skirt over the Mathematics, but rather, makes an active attempt at imparting knowledge and understanding. This makes the book ideal for both the Maths specialist who is interested in history and for the generalist seeking a broad understanding without being daunted by the Maths. Kramer has done a marvellous job in meeting this tough challenge. If this book has one failing, it is the way it skims over mathematical contributions from nonwestern societies, but it balances this somewhat by not overplaying the "Greek card". Some books do go on about Euclid as if he was the Newton of the ancients! Having said this, it can be excused since the book is quite old and much new knowledge has been gained on contributions from India and China in the last couple of decades. The interested reader may also wish to look up George Joseph's book, "The flight of the Peacock" for this. An ideal book for both history and mathematics. I have had my copy for 20 years and it keeps my interest, still. Thoroughly recommended!
Thirty Years and Still the Best There is a great deal of power in the present era from being ableto recognize the appropriate techniques from a more wide knowledge base, attimes, yes, to synthesize two or more techniques to solve a potent problemor develop an application. Edna Kramers book gave me a great deal, and itis written in a way that could assist people in all occupations and withall interests. It is a fascinating and at times awe inspring overview ofmath.
The best of the Math History books
