    Originally issued in , this popular Fifth Edition () covers the period from antiquity to the close of World War I, with major emphasis on advanced mathematics and, in particular, the advanced mathematics of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In one concise volume, this unique book presents an interesting and reliable account of mathematics history for those who cannot devote. Many courses on the history of mathematics describe what mathematical results have been discovered, but the student has little chance to explore these discoveries ‘from the inside’. A good source book provides a wide range of original sources (usually in translation and edited as necessary) which enable us to see the problems solved in the.

The century began with a historic convention at the Sorbonne in Paris in the summer of which is largely remembered for a lecture by the young German mathematician David Hilbert in which he set out what he saw as the 23 greatest unsolved mathematical problems of the day. These “Hilbert problems” effectively set the agenda for 20th Century mathematics, and laid down the gauntlet for 5/5(35).

Read this book on Questia. When we consider the increase of interest in the study of mathematics in this country since the yearand the recent achievements in this field, we may be tempted to feel that the subject had no history of any moment before the twentieth century.

The area of study known as the history of mathematics is primarily an investigation into the origin of discoveries in mathematics and, to a lesser extent, an investigation into the mathematical methods and notation of the the modern age and the worldwide spread of knowledge, written examples of new mathematical developments have come to light only in a few locales.

The closest thing to such a book on the recent history of mathematics I could find is Piergiorgio Odifreddi's "Mathematical Century: The 30 Greatest Problems of the Last Years" which is not exactly a history of math book but rather a discussion of specific problems that were discussed or solved in the 20th century.
