9780883855461: Sherlock Holmes in Babylon and Other Tales of Mathematical History (Spectrum)

Covering a span of almost 4000 years, from the ancient Babylonians to the eighteenth century, this collection chronicles the enormous changes in mathematical thinking over this time, as viewed by distinguished historians of mathematics from the past and the present. Each of the four sections of the book (Ancient Mathematics, Medieval and Renaissance Mathematics, The Seventeenth Century, The Eighteenth Century) is preceded by a Foreword, in which the articles are put into historical context, and followed by an Afterword, in which they are reviewed in the light of current historical scholarship. In more than one case, two articles on the same topic are included, to show how knowledge and views about the topic changed over the years. This book will be enjoyed by anyone interested in mathematics and its history - and in particular by mathematics teachers at secondary, college, and university levels.

About the Author:

Victor Katz is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of the District of Columbia. He has long been interested in the history of mathematics and its use in teaching. His textbook: "A History of Mathematics: An Introduction" was published in 1993, with a second edition in 1998 and a shorter version to appear in 2004. He has written numerous articles and given many presentations dealing with the history of mathematics and its use in teaching.

Robin Wilson is currently Senior Lecturer in Mathematics at the Open University, U.K., and Fellow in Mathematics at Keble College, Oxford University. He has written and edited about 25 books, in topics ranging from graph theory and combinatorics, via philately and the Gilbert & Sullivan operas, to the history of mathematics puns.

Marlow Anderson is a professor of mathematics at The Colorado College, in Colorado Springs; he has been a member of the mathematics department there since 1982. He studied partially ordered algebra at the University of Kansas and received his Ph.D. in 1978. He has written over 20 research papers. In addition, he is co-author of a book on lattice-ordered groups, and also an undergraduate textbook on abstract algebra.
