Howard Eves(
Book
)
8 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Howard Eves has enjoyed a long, distinguished career as a teacher, geometer, writer, editor and historian of mathematics. A renowned teacher and scholar, Eves spent most of his career at the University of Maine at Orono, and more recently at Central Florida University. For twentyfive years he edited the Elementary Problems Section of the American Mathematical Monthly. Long known as a mathematical storyteller, Howard Eves here writes his personal reminiscencesmostly mathematical, some not. The cast of characters includes Albert Einstein, Norbert Wiener, Julian Lowell Coolidge, Maurice Frchet, Nathan AltschillerCourt, G.H. Hardy, and many other interesting figures whom he encountered in a long and active life in mathematics. In Mathematical Reminiscences we read of Eves' famous mathematical museum, with its lock of Einstein's hair, Hardy's scarf, Veblen's bright yellow lead pencil, Wiener's hat, and much, much more
