The Norton history of the mathematical sciences : the rainbow of mathematics by I Grattan-Guinness( Book )
6 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Beginning with the Babylonian and Egyptian mathematicians of antiquity, The Norton History of the Mathematical Sciences charts the growth of mathematics, through its refinement by ancient Greeks and medieval Arabs, to its systematic development by Europeans from the Middle Ages to the early twentieth century. The traditions of the Far East are also examined. The book describes the evolution of all the major aspects of the discipline: arithmetic and geometry; trigonometry and algebra; the interplay between mathematics, physics, and mathematical astronomy; and "new" branches such as probability, statistics, and mathematical economics
The search for mathematical roots, 1870-1940 logics, set theories and the foundations of mathematics from Cantor through Russell to Gödel by I Grattan-Guinness( )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While many books have been written about Bertrand Russell's philosophy and some on his logic, I. Grattan-Guinness has written the first comprehensive history of the mathematical background, content, and impact of the mathematical logic and philosophy of mathematics that Russell developed with A.N. Whitehead in their Principia mathematica (1910-1913). This definitive history of a critical period in mathematics includes detailed accounts of the two principal influences upon Russell around 1900: the set theory of Cantor and the mathematical logic of Peano and his followers. Substantial surveys ar

Pierre-Simon Laplace, 1749-1827 : a life in exact science by Charles Coulston Gillispie( Book )
14 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pierre-Simon Laplace was among the most influential scientists in history. Often referred to as the lawgiver of French science, he is known for his technical contributions to exact science, for the philosophical point of view he developed in the presentation of his work, and for the leading part he took in forming the modern discipline of mathematical physics. His two most famous treatises were the five-volume Traite de mecanique celeste (1799-1825) and Theorie analytique des probabilites (1812). In the former, he demonstrated mathematically the stability of the solar system in accordance with the universal Newtonian law of gravity. In the latter, he developed probability from a set of miscellaneous problems concerning games, averages, mortality, and insurance risks. These estimates of error and statistical inferences could be applied to social, medical, and legal matters, as well as to the physical sciences. This book traces the development of Laplace's research program and of his participation in the Academy of Science during the last decades of the Old Regime into the early years of the French Revolution
Routes of learning : highways, pathways, and byways in the history of mathematics by I Grattan-Guinness( Book )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These essays ponder the intellectual underpinnings of the field, examine the major topics in the history of mathematics, and recount the bizarre history of pseudomath. The author explores how people understand mathematics, the routes of learning they take as they make important discoveries and study mathematical concepts and theories.--[book cover]
George Boole : selected manuscripts on logic and its philosophy by George Boole( Book )
13 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and German and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
George Boole (1815-1864) is well known to mathematicians for his research and textbooks on the calculus, but his name has spread world-wide for his innovations in symbolic logic and the development and applications made since his day. The utility of "Boolean algebra" in computing has greatly increased curiosity in the nature and extent of his achievements. His work is most accessible in his two books on logic, "A mathematical analysis of logic" (1947) and "An investigation of the laws of thought" (1954). But at various times he wrote manuscript essays, especially after the publication of the second book; several were intended for a non-technical work, "The Philosophy of logic", which he was not able to complete. This volume contains an edited selection which not only relates them to Boole's publications and the historical context of his time, but also describes their strange history of family, followers and scholars have treid to confect an edition. The book will appeal to logicians, mathematicians and philosophers, and those interested in the histories of the corresponding subjects; and also students of the early Victorian Britain in which they were written
