The rainbow from myth to mathematics by
Carl B Boyer(
Book
)
42 editions published between 1959 and 1987 in English and held by 1,005 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Virtually every volume on mythology contains legends connected with the rainbow and practically all modern textbooks of physics include some exposition of the optical principles which account for the bow. Mankind has been thinking, talking and writing about the rainbow for thousands of years. The Rainbow: from Myth to Mathematics gathers material from a great number of primary and secondary sources in the hopes that readers may be tempted to study further some aspects of the history of the theory of the rainbow. Includes information on Aristotle, Francis Bacon, the Christian tradition, color, Rene, Descartes, fogbow, Augustin Fresnel, Galileo Galilei, halo, Islamic tradition, Jesuits, Johann Kepler, nature of light, mirrors, Sir Isaac Newton, Olympiodorus, physics, rainbow breadth, reflection, refraction, Robert Grosseteste, Themo Judoci, Witelo, etc

History of analytic geometry by
Carl B Boyer(
Book
)
29 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Specifically designed as an integrated survey of the development of analytic geometry, this classic study takes a unique approach to the history of ideas. The author, a distinguished historian of mathematics, presents a detailed view of not only the concepts themselves, but also the ways in which they extended the work of each generation, from before the Alexandrian Age through the eras of the great French mathematicians Fermat and Descartes, and on through Newton and Euler to the "Golden Age," from 1789 to 1850. Appropriate as an undergraduate text, this history is accessible to any mathematically inclined reader. 1956 edition. Analytical bibliography. Index
