Elements of Mathematics (共9册), 这套丛书还有 《Elements of Mathematics》,《Functions of a Real Variable》,《Theory of Sets》,《Lie Groups and Lie Algebras》,《Elements of Mathematics》 等。Author: Nicolas Bourbaki. Euclid's Elements (sometimes: The Elements, Greek: Στοιχεῖα Stoicheia) is a large set of math books about geometry, written by the ancient Greek mathematician known as Euclid (c BC– BC) in Alexandria (Egypt) circa BC. The set has 13 volumes, or sections, and has been printed often as 13 physical books (numbered I-XIII), rather than one large book. Euclid (/ ˈ juː k l ɪ d /; Ancient Greek: Εὐκλείδης – Eukleídēs, pronounced [ː.dɛːs]; fl. BC), sometimes called Euclid of Alexandria to distinguish him from Euclid of Megara, was a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the "founder of geometry" or the "father of geometry". He was active in Alexandria during the reign of Ptolemy I (– BC).Fields: Mathematics. Morris Kline, Mathematics: The Loss of Certainty Kline traces the development of mathematics from its origins when mathematics tolerated a certain amount of hand waving and inexactitude in its proofs, to its search for ultimate logical rigor to t.

The field of mathematics today represents an ongoing global effort, spanning both countries and centuries. While some developments emerged in multiple cultures, independent of each other, others involved an extensive exchange of ideas among individuals around the world. Through this in-depth narrative, students will learn how major mathematical concepts were first derived, as . The main Story of Mathematics is supplemented by a List of Important Mathematicians and their achievements, and by an alphabetical Glossary of Mathematical Terms. You can also make use of the search facility at the top of each page to search for individual mathematicians, theorems, developments, periods in history, etc. Each volume of Nicolas Bourbakis well-known work, The Elements of Mathematics, contains a section or chapter devoted to the history of the subject. This book collects together those historical segments with an emphasis on the emergence, development, and interaction of the leading ideas of the mathematical theories presented in the Elements. In particular, the book . The Project Gutenberg EBook of A Short Account of the History of Mathematics, by W. W. Rouse Ball This eBook is for the use of anyone anywhere at no cost and with almost no restrictions whatsoever. You may copy it, give it away or The Elements as a text-book of geometry 44 The Elements as a text-book of the theory of numbers.

Cambridge Elements are a new concept in academic publishing and scholarly communication, combining the best features of books and journals. They consist of original, concise, authoritative, and peer-reviewed scholarly and scientific research, organised into focused series edited by leading scholars, and provide comprehensive coverage of the key. This is a sub-article to Calculus and History of mathematics. History of Calculus is part of the history of mathematics focused on limits, functions, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series. The subject, known historically as infinitesimal calculus, constitutes a major part of modern mathematics education. It has two major.
