Florian Cajori, "A History of Mathematical Notations: Vol. II"
English | 2007-06-01 | ISBN: 1602067139 | 396 pages | PDF | 34.6 mb
Described even today as "unsurpassed," this history of mathematical notation stretching back to the Babylonians and Egyptians is one of the most comprehensive written. In two impressive volumes-first published in 1928-9-distinguished mathematician Florian Cajori shows the origin, evolution, and dissemination of each symbol and the competition it faced in its rise to popularity or fall into obscurity.
