Schon lange bevor die Schrift entwickelt wurde, hat der Mensch geometrische Strukturen wahrgenommen und systematisch verwendet. So entstehen beim Weben und Flechten einfache zweidimensionale Muster und ohne dreidimensionale Körper wie Quader, Würfel oder Pyramide ist keine Bautätigkeit denkbar. Das vorliegende Buch gibt einen faszinierenden Überblick über die geometrischen Vorstellungen und Erkenntnisse der Menschen von der Urgesellschaft bis hin zu den komplexen mathematischen wie auch künstlerischen Ideen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Neben vielen Abbildungen wird jede Epoche mit einer Tabelle zeit- und kulturgeschichtlicher Daten eingeleitet und mit einer tabellarischen Darstellung der wesentlichen Inhalte der Geometrie dieser Zeit abgeschlossen. Aufgaben am Ende jeden Kapitels laden den Leser ein, sich an den Problemen der alten Meister selber zu versuchen. Ein Buch für alle, die der Lebendigkeit und Entwicklung der Geometrie als erste "Anwendungswissenschaft" nachspüren wollen. Für die 2. Auflage wurde ein Kapitel über geometrischen Vorstellungen amerikanischer Frühkulturen hinzugefügt und im ersten Kapitel neuste Forschungsergebnisse eingearbeitet

5000 years of geometry : mathematics in history and culture by Christoph J Scriba( Book )

15 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume provides a fascinating overview of geometrical ideas and perceptions from the earliest cultures to the mathematical and artistic concepts of the 20th century. It is the English translation of the 3rd edition of the well received German book "5000 Jahre Geometrie," in which geometry is presented as a chain of developments in cultural history and their interaction with architecture, the visual arts, philosophy, science, and engineering. Geometry originated in the ancient cultures along the Indus and Nile Rivers and in Mesopotamia, experiencing its first "Goldon Age" in Ancient Greece. Inspired by the Greek mathematics, a new germ of geometry blossomed in the Islamic civilizations. Through the Oriental influence on Spain, this knowledge later spread to Western Europe. Here, as part of the medieval Quadrivium, the understanding of geometry was deepened, leading to a revival during the Renaissance. Together with parallel achievements in India, China, Japan and the ancient American cultures, the European approaches formed the ideas and branches of geometry we know in the modern age: coordinate methods, analytical geometry, descriptive and projective geometry in the 17th and 18th centuries, axiom systems, geometry as a theory with multiple structures, and geometry in computer sciences in the 19th and 20th centuries. Each chapter of the book starts with a table of key historical and cultural dates and ends with a summary of essential contents of geometry in the respective era. Compelling examples invite the reader to further explore the problems of geometry in ancient and modern times.--Back cover
