James Clerk Maxwell : perspectives on his life and work by Raymond Flood( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) had a relatively brief, but remarkable life, lived in his beloved rural home of Glenlair, and variously in Edinburgh, Aberdeen, London and Cambridge. His scholarship also ranged wide--covering all the major aspects of Victorian natural philosophy. He is regarded as one of the most important mathematical physicists of all time, coming only after Newton and Einstein. In scientific terms his immortality is enshrined in electromagnetism and Maxwell's equations, but as this book shows, there was much more to Maxwell than electromagnetism, both in terms of his science and his wider life. Maxwell's life and contributions to science are so rich that they demand the expertise of a range of academics--physicists, mathematicians, and historians of science and literature--to do him justice."--Jacket
Mathematicians and their Gods : interactions between mathematics and religious beliefs by Snezana Lawrence( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To open a newspaper or turn on the television it would appear that science and religion are polar opposites - mutually exclusive bedfellows competing for hearts and minds. There is little indication of the rich interaction between religion and science throughout history, much of which continues today. From ancient to modern times, mathematicians have played a key role in this interaction. This is a book on the relationship between mathematics and religious beliefs. It aims to show that, throughout scientific history, mathematics has been used to make sense of the 'big' questions of life, and theism is rich in both culture and character. Chapters cover a fascinating range of topics including the Sect of the Pythagoreans, Newton's views on the Apocalypse, Charles Dodgson's Anglican faith and Godel's proof of the existence of God.--
Physicists of Ireland : passion and precision by Mark McCartney( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a collection of essays on leading figures from the history of physics in Ireland. It includes physicists born outside Ireland who carried out significant work in Ireland, and also those whose work was carried out mainly outside Ireland provided they had strong Irish roots. The book is well illustrated with diagrams and photos of historical interest and rounded off with useful suggestions for further reading. Taken as a whole Physicists of Ireland demonstrates the strength of the tradition in Ireland. It might also come as a surprise to many that several leading 'English' physicists are actually from Ireland."

History of mathematics in the higher education curriculum( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Mathematics is usually, and of course correctly, presented 'ready-made' to students, with techniques and applications presented systematically and in logical order. However, like any other academic subject, mathematics has a history which is rich in astonishing breakthroughs, false starts, misattributions, confusions and dead-ends. This history gives a narrative and human context which adds colour and context to the discipline. Setting historical context can motivate and enthuse learning, but it also enriches the curriculum, shows connections between different branches of the subject, and helps to produce students with a greater sense of the breadth and, what might be termed, the creative life of mathematics as a discipline. This report seeks to give examples of how history has been integrated into undergraduate mathematics teaching in higher education through case studies."--Back cover
