A History of Mathematics: An Introduction

Provides a world view of mathematics, balancing ancient, early modern and modern history. Problems are taken from their original sources, enabling students to understand how mathematicians in various times and places solved mathematical problems. In this new edition a more global perspective is taken, integrating more non-Western coverage including contributions from Chinese/Indian, and Islamic mathematics and mathematicians. An additional chapter covers mathematical techniques from other cultures. *Up to date, uses the results of very recent scholarship in the history of mathematics. *Provides summaries of the arguments of all important ideas in the field.
