Leonhard Euler by Emil A Fellmann( )

35 editions published between 1975 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Euler was not only by far the most productive mathematician in the history of mankind, but also one of the greatest scholars of all time. He attained, like only a few scholars, a degree of popularity and fame which may well be compared with that of Galilei, Newton, or Einstein. Moreover he was a cosmopolitan in the truest sense of the word; he lived during his first twenty years in Basel, was active altogether for more than thirty years in Petersburg and for a quarter of a century in Berlin. Leonhard Eulerâ??s unusually rich life and broadly

Patterns of change : linguistic innovations in the development of classical mathematics by Ladislav Kvasz( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a reconstruction of linguistic innovations in the history of mathematics; innovations which changed the ways in which mathematics was clone, understood and philosophically interpreted. It argues that there are at least three ways in which the language of mathematics has been changed throughout its history, thus determining the lines of development that mathematics has followed." "The book offers tools of analysis by means of which scholars and students of the history and philosophy of mathematics can attain better understanding of the various changes, which the subject of their study underwent in the course of history. The book brings also important insights for mathematics education connecting growth of language with the development of mathematical thought."--Jacket

The world as a mathematical game : John von Neumann and twentieth century science by Giorgio Israel( )

2 editions published in 2009 in German and English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galileo and Newton's work towards the mathematisation of the physical world; Leibniz's universal logical calculus; the Enlightenment's mathématique sociale. John von Neumann inherited all these aims and philosophical intuitions, together with an idea that grew up around the Vienna Circle of an ethics in the form of an exact science capable of guiding individuals to make correct decisions. With the help of his boundless mathematical capacity, von Neumann developed a conception of the world as a mathematical game, a world globally governed by a universal logic in which individual consciousness moved following different strategies: his vision guided him from set theory to quantum mechanics, to economics and to his theory of automata (anticipating artificial intelligence and cognitive science). Von Neumann became a true legend in twentieth century science; but he was also a controversial figure, because of the decisive role he played in determining US military policy and strategic atomic equilibrium - which he viewed as an application of game theory. The Cold War is over; the age of nuclear physics and big science has been superseded by our age of biotechnology and postacademic science. From the life of John von Neumann emerge important insights to understand the cultural and technological landscape that we have inherited from the past century. This book provides the first comprehensive scientific and intellectual biography of John von Neumann, a man who perhaps more than any other is representative of twentieth century science. There are hundreds of metaphors for life: Life is a vale of tears, a dream, a joke. In As You Like It, Shakespeare says that life is a stage. What was von Neumann's metaphor? ... it was that life is a game. Sensitive to the double-edged sword of knowledge and the idiocy of mankind, von Neumann's main legacy might be the deepening of the ancient dilemma of Prometheus.

The moon that wasn't : the saga of Venus' spurious satellite by Helge Kragh( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book details the history of one of astronomy's many spurious objects, the satellite of Venus. First spotted in 1645, the non-existing moon was "observed" more than a dozen times until the late eighteenth century. Although few astronomers believed in the existence of such an object after about 1770, it continued to attract attention for at least another century. However, it has largely disappeared from the history of astronomy, and the rich historical sources have never been exploited. The story of the enigmatic satellite in its proper historical context demonstrates that it was much more than a mere curiosity in the annals of astronomy. Frederick II of Prussia was familiar with it, and so were Bonnet, Kant and Voltaire. The painstaking attempts to either prove or disprove its existence led to the development of many new perspectives both practical and philosophical. The satellite of Venus belongs to the same category as other fictitious celestial bodies (such as the planet Vulcan), yet it had its own life and fascinating historical trajectory. By following this trajectory, the history of planetary astronomy is addressed in a novel way."--book jacket

XIV bilden den Grundstein des vorliegenden Buches; sie wurden verbessert, erweitert und mit neuen Beitragen zu einem einheitlichen Ganzen verschmolzen. Ich glaube, daB das Buch manchem Leser auch einige Uberraschungen bereiten wird. So wird u. a. dokumentiert, daB - im Gegensatz zu den tiblichen historischen Bemer kungen - NEWTON das tiberall nach ihm benannte Gesetz {laquo}Kraft gleich Masse mal Beschleunigung{raquo} nirgends und niemals, nicht in Worten und erst recht nicht in mathe matischer Formulierung niedergeschrieben hat. Es wird auch dargelegt, daB D'ALEM BERT weder den Streit urn {laquo}das wahre KraftmaB{raquo} entschieden noch das nach ihm be nannte {laquo}Paradoxon{raquo} nachgewiesen hat. Auch sein kinetisches Prinzip hatte gewich tige Vorbilder und geht -insbesondere in der heutigen Form -auf LAGRANGE zurtick. Ebenso ist die Benennung der stationaren Stromfadengleichung nach DANIEL BER NOULLI nicht zutreffend: sein Vater JOHANN hatte sie sogar fUr den instationaren Fall auf die heute tibliche Form gebracht. Die Navier-Stokesschen Bewegungsgleichungen miiBten nach NAVIER und DE SAINT-VENANT benannt werden. Es diirfte auch kaum bekannt sein, daB schon bei DANIEL BERNOULLI eine Art von {laquo}Rayleigh-Quotient{raquo} vorkommt
