Review: The World of Mathematics Set

Användarrecension  - Hugh Chatfield - Goodreads

Not something you read cover to cover. You can dip in and out just about anywhere, First discovered this set in the local library and later purchased my own copy. Great reading in mathematics. You do't need advanced mathematics to enjoy this trio of books. Läs hela recensionen

Review: The World of Mathematics Set

Användarrecension  - Jerzy - Goodreads

Sounds like a collection of papers and articles by the original historical developers or discoverers of various bits of math? Nice idea -- "read the masters, not their students" as they say, which would be easier if they made collections like these easier to find! Läs hela recensionen
