Piccola ma pure sempre rilevante la parte dedicata a matematici non occidentali cinesi, arabi e indiani May 11, Jason rated it it was ok.
The book is, after all, a history book, and was definitely meant to relate history, not math itself. IL Boyer, il libro perfetto per chiunque si voglia avvicinare alla Storia della Matematica.
The upside is, makes me want to look into the archaeology of math, and if there isn’t such a field already, one should invent it. I really wish I was better at that, but I am working on it. Those without a math background can enjoy this quite well, but the more math background the better. Throughout the book, it matemaitca quadratics and how the ancients thought stoia them and goes on through the founding of Calculus and Analysis.

Mathematical knowledge up to and including differential and integral calculus helps! But it isn’t a book whose aim is to teach ztoria, and any problems encountered can be simply passed over; or, nowadays, one can Google the term of confusion and find lots of additional info to help one get past a road block.
