The Search for Mathematical Roots, 1870-1940 by I. Grattan-Guinness

By I. Grattan-Guinness

Whereas many books were written approximately Bertrand Russell's philosophy and a few on his common sense, I. Grattan-Guinness has written the 1st accomplished background of the mathematical heritage, content material, and influence of the mathematical common sense and philosophy of arithmetic that Russell built with A. N. Whitehead of their Principia mathematica (1910-1913).
This definitive background of a serious interval in arithmetic contains unique bills of the 2 imperative affects upon Russell round 1900: the set idea of Cantor and the mathematical common sense of Peano and his fans. large surveys are supplied of many comparable issues and figures of the overdue 19th century: the principles of mathematical research lower than Weierstrass; the production of algebraic good judgment through De Morgan, Boole, Peirce, Schröder, and Jevons; the contributions of Dedekind and Frege; the phenomenology of Husserl; and the evidence concept of Hilbert. The many-sided tale of the reception is recorded as much as 1940, together with the increase of good judgment in Poland and the impression on Vienna Circle philosophers Carnap and Gödel. a powerful American subject matter runs even though the tale, starting with the mathematician E. H. Moore and the thinker Josiah Royce, and stretching in the course of the emergence of Church and Quine, and the Thirties immigration of Carnap and GödeI.
Grattan-Guinness attracts on round fifty manuscript collections, together with the Russell information, in addition to many unique reports. The bibliography contains round 1,900 goods, bringing to gentle a wealth of fundamental materials.
Written for mathematicians, logicians, historians, and philosophers--especially these drawn to the old interplay among those disciplines--this authoritative account tells a tremendous tale from its such a lot missed standpoint. Whitehead and Russell was hoping to teach that (much of) arithmetic was once expressible inside of their good judgment; they failed in a number of methods, yet no definitive replacement place emerged then or considering.

Structural properties of polylogarithms by Leonard Lewin

By Leonard Lewin

Years in the past, the handful of unusual numerical dilogarithmic identities, identified because the time of Euler and Landen, gave upward push to new discoveries referring to cyclotomic equations and similar polylogarithmic ladders. those discoveries have been made ordinarily via the equipment of classical research, with support from computer computation. in regards to the related time, beginning with Bloch's reviews at the software of the dilogarithm in algebraic $K$-theory and algebraic geometry, many vital discoveries have been made in various parts. This ebook seeks to supply a synthesis of those streams of concept. as well as an account of ladders and their organization with useful equations, the chapters contain purposes to quantity calculations in Lobatchevsky geometry, family to partition conception, connections with Clausen's functionality, new useful equations, and functions to $K$-theory and different branches of summary algebra. This rapidly-expanding box is pointed out so far with appendices, and the booklet concludes with an in depth bibliography of contemporary guides. approximately two-thirds of the cloth is available to mathematicians and scientists in lots of parts, whereas the remaining calls for extra really expert heritage in summary algebra

A history of the mathematical theory of probability : from by Todhunter, I. (Isaac)

By Todhunter, I. (Isaac)

The beneficial reception which has been granted to my historical past of the Calculus of diversifications through the 19th Century has inspired me to adopt one other paintings of an analogous sort. the topic to which I now invite consciousness has excessive claims to attention because of the sophisticated difficulties which it includes, the dear contributions to research which it has produced, its very important functional functions, and the eminence of these who've cultivated it.
