### Mathematics and Its History by John Stillwell

By John Stillwell

From the studies of the second one edition:

"This e-book covers many attention-grabbing issues now not frequently lined in a gift day undergraduate direction, in addition to convinced easy themes resembling the advance of the calculus and the answer of polynomial equations. the truth that the subjects are brought of their historic contexts will allow scholars to raised savour and comprehend the mathematical rules involved...If one constructs an inventory of subject matters imperative to a heritage path, then they'd heavily resemble these selected here."

(David Parrott, Australian Mathematical Society)

"The book...is awarded in a full of life sort with no pointless aspect. it's very stimulating and should be preferred not just by means of scholars. a lot cognizance is paid to difficulties and to the advance of arithmetic earlier than the top of the 19th century... This ebook brings to the non-specialist attracted to arithmetic many fascinating effects. it may be prompt for seminars and may be loved by way of the wide mathematical community."

(European Mathematical Society)

"Since Stillwell treats many issues, so much mathematicians will research much from this publication in addition to they're going to locate friendly and quite transparent expositions of customized fabrics. The e-book is offered to scholars that experience already skilled calculus, algebra and geometry and should supply them a superb account of ways different branches of arithmetic interact."

(Denis Bonheure, Bulletin of the Belgian Society)

This 3rd version comprises new chapters on basic teams and combinatorics, and new sections on a number of subject matters, together with the Poincare conjecture. The publication has additionally been enriched by means of further exercises.
