Hilbert by Constance Reid( Book )

80 editions published between 1970 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 1,560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If the life of any 20th century mathematician can be said to be a history of mathematics in his time, it is that of David Hilbert. To the enchanted young mathematicians and physicists who flocked to study with him in Gottingen before and between the World Wars, he seemed mathematics personified, the very air around him "scientifically electric." His remarkably prescient proposal in 1900 of twenty-three problems for the coming century set the course of much subsequent mathematics and remains a feat that no scientist in any field has been able to duplicate. When he died, Nature remarked that there was scarcely a mathematician in the world whose work did not derive from that of Hilbert. Constance Reid's classic biography is a moving, nontechnical account of the passionate scientific life of this man - from the early days in Konigsberg, when his revolutionary work was dismissed as "theology," to the golden years in Gottingen before Hitler came to power and within a few months destroyed the entire Hilbert school. The Copernicus paperback edition makes this book available to new generations of mathematicians who know the name Hilbert, which is everywhere in mathematics, but do not know the man
Courant in Göttingen and New York : the story of an improbable mathematician by Constance Reid( Book )

20 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More mathematical people : contemporary conversations by Donald J Albers( Book )

12 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and held by 877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the tradition of the first volume of Mathematical People comes another collection of interviews and profiles with some of the most prestigious mathematicians of our time. The chapters tell in the mathematicians' own words how they became interested in mathematics, how they chose their speciality, and about their hobbies and personal lives. Each interview has its own colorful character and is full of photographs so personal and lively that they add a new dimension to the reader's perception. -- from dust jacket

Neyman--from life by Constance Reid( Book )

34 editions published between 1982 and 2001 in 5 languages and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jerzy Neyman received the National Medal of Science "for laying the foundations of modern statistics and devising tests and procedures that have become essential parts of the knowledge of every statistician." Until his death in 1981 at the age of 87, Neyman was vigorously involved in the concerns and controversies of the day, a scientist whose personality and activity were integral parts of his contribution to science. Through conversations with Neyman as well as the author's access to his personal and professional letters and papers, this book presents the life story of the statistician

Slacks and calluses : our summer in a bomber factory by Constance Reid( Book )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In 1943 two spirited young teachers decided to do their part for the war effort by spending their summer vacation working the swing shift on a B-24 production line at a San Diego bomber plant. Entering a male-dominated realm of welding torches and bomb bays, they learned to use tools that they had never seen before, live with aluminum shavings in their hair, and get along with supervisors and coworkers from all walks of life. And they learned that wearing their factory slacks on the street caused men to treat them in a way for which their "dignified schoolteacher-hood" hadn't prepared them." "First published in 1944 and illustrated with humorous drawings, Slacks and Calluses is an on-the-spot account of how two women assumed the wartime roles that would change society, coping with traditional attitudes they encountered along the way. Constance Bowman tells of foremen who struggled futilely to enforce a rule requiring all women to wear caps; of young coworkers who wistfully imagined earning their high school diplomas; and of the bruises and cut fingers that she and Clara Marie Allen endured in making final installations to the "Liberator" planes that rolled off the Consolidated Vultee production line." "Bowman and Allen evoke in vivid detail the ambiguities, drama, and comedy of life on the home front during World War II."--Jacket
