An Episodic History of Mathematics delivers a series of snapshots of the history of mathematics from ancient times to the twentieth century. The intent is not to provide an encyclopaedic history of mathematics, but to give the reader a sense of mathematical culture and history. The book also acquaints the reader with the nature and techniques of mathematics through its exercises. The book introduces the genesis of many mathematical ideas. Useful for history of mathematics or senior capstone courses.
Highly recommended. It is exactly what the title promises it to be. It is a history of mathematics that teaches the student what mathematics is about through problem solving. Through biographical data and anecdotes the reader gets a feeling for the historical dimension of mathematics while at the same time the well chosen subjects and the exercises bring across the exciting character of mathematics and its development.
