By Florian Cajori

Defined even this day as "unsurpassed," this background of mathematical notation stretching again to the Babylonians and Egyptians is likely one of the such a lot accomplished written. In remarkable volumes-first released in 1928-9-distinguished mathematician Florian Cajori exhibits the starting place, evolution, and dissemination of every image and the contest it confronted in its upward thrust to recognition or fall into obscurity. Illustrated with greater than 100 diagrams and figures, this "mirror of prior and current stipulations in arithmetic" will supply scholars and historians an entire new appreciation for "1 + 1 = 2. Swiss-American writer, educator, and mathematician FLORIAN CAJORI (1859-1930) was once one of many world's such a lot unusual mathematical historians. Appointed to a especially created chair within the historical past of arithmetic on the collage of California, Berkeley, he additionally wrote An creation to the idea of Equations, A heritage of straight forward arithmetic, and The Chequered occupation of Ferdinand Rudolph Hassler.
