  • Infinite Series in a History of Analysisby Hans-Heinrich Körle

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 42.00

    "Higher mathematics" once pointed towards the involvement of infinity. This we label analysis. The ancient Greeks had helped it to a first high point when they mastered the infinite.

  • Mathematics: All That Mattersby Mike Askew

    Hodder & Stoughton 2015; US$ 10.99

    Mathematics often gets a bad press. Describing someone as 'calculating' or 'rational' is hardly as flattering as being labelled 'artistic' or 'creative' and mathematicians in movies or novels are often portrayed as social misfits who rarely get the guy or girl. No wonder some folks say 'oh I don't care for mathematics, I was never any good at it'... more...
