The authors distill thousands of years of m ...show moreathematics into this fascinating chronicle. From the Greeks to Godel, the mathematics is brilliant; the cast of characters is distinguished; the ebb and flow of ideas is everywhere evident. And, while tracing the development of European mathematics, the authors do not overlook the contributions of Chinese, Indian, and Arabic civilizations. Without doubt, this is, and will long remain, classic one-volume history of mathematics and mathematicians who create it. Updated and expanded, it now offers broadened coverage of 20th century advances in probability and computers, and updated references to further reading. A feature that will be of interest ot every reader is an appendix containing an extensive chronological tale of mathematics and general historical developments. ...show less
