Title:Leonid Isaakovich Mandelstam [electronic resource] : Research, Teaching, Life
Author(s): Alexander Pechenkin
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This biography of the famous Soviet physicist Leonid Isaakovich Mandelstam (1889-1944), who became a Professor at Moscow State University in 1925, describes his contributions to both physics and technology, as well as discussingthe scientific communi ty which formed around him, usually called the Mandelstam school. Mandelstams life story is thereby placed in its proper cultural context. The following more general issues are taken under consideration: theimpact of German scientific culture on Russian s cience the problems and fates of Russian intellectuals during the revolutionary and post-revolutionary years the formation of the Soviet Academy of Sciences and transformation of thesystem of higher education in the USSR during the 1920's and 1930's.The a uthor shows that Mandelstams fundamental writings and his lectures notes allow to reconstruct his philosophy of science and his approach to the social andethical functions of science and science education. That reconstruction is enhanced through extensive use of hitherto unpublished archival material as well as the transcripts of personal interviews conducted by the author

Title:Henri Poincar [electronic resource] : Impatient Genius
Author(s): Ferdinand Verhulst
Date:2012
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book describes the life and work of Henri Poincar, detailing most of his unique achievements in mathematics and physics. It is divided into two partsthe first on Poincars life, and the second on his contributionsto the mathematical sciences. Apa rt from biographical details, attention is given to Poincars results on automorphic functions differential equations and dynamical systems celestial mechanics mathematical physics, in particularthe theory of the electron and relativity and topology (analy sis situs). A chapter on philosophy explains Poincars conventionalism in mathematics and his view of conventionalism in physics. The book shows how Poincar reachedhis fundamentally new results in many different fields, how he thought about problems, and h ow one should read his work. Simultaneously, it is made clear how analysis and geometry are intertwined in Poincars thinking and work. Indynamical systems, this becomes clear in his description of invariant manifolds, his association of differential equat ion flow with mappings, and his fixed-point theory. There is no comparable book on Poincar presenting such arelatively complete vision of his life and the working of his very original mind. Scientists and engineers as well as general readers interested in the history of science will find this book of interest. Reviews of this book:Thetitle of this biography is particularly well chosen : Henri Poincar was a true genius, and he was impatient. It gives a fair picture of both the man and the scientist, comple ted by particularly well chosen illustrations. Jean Mawhin,Universit Catholique de Louvain, Belgium Ferdinand Verhulst has written a true scientific biography, introducing Poincar the man, his cultural milieu, and his mathematics. This book shows why, a c entury after his death,Poincar's ideas still shape a substantial part of the mathematical sciences. Philip J Holmes, Princeton University, USA

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Winner of the 1983National Book Award, The Mathematical Experience presented a highlyinsightful overview of mathematics that effectively conveyed its power and beauty to a largeaudience of mathematicians andnon-mathematicians alike. The study edition of the work followed about a decade later, supplementing the original material of the book with exercises to provide a self-contained treatment usable for the classroom. This softcoverversion reproduces the study edition andincludes epilogues by the thre e original authors to reflect on the book's content 15 years after its publication, and to demonstrate its continued applicability to the classroom.Moreover,The Companion Guide to the Mathematical Experienceoriginally published and sold separatelyis freel y available online to instructors who use the work, further enhancingits pedagogicalvalue and making itanexceptionally usefuland accessible resource for a wide range oflower-level courses inmathematics and mathematics education. A wealth of customizable o nline course materials for the bookcan be obtainedfrom Elena AnneMarchisotto (elena.marchisotto@csun.edu) upon request. Reviews [The authors] have tried to provide a book usable in a course for liberal arts students and for future secondary teachers. They have done much more! This course shouldbe required of every undergraduate major employing the mathematical sciences. It differs from the mathematics appreciation coursescourses that are merely a collection of amusing puzzles and toy problems giving an il lusion ofa mathematical encounterpresently found in many institutions. Students of this course are introduced to the context in which mathematics exists and the incredible magnitude of words devoted to communicating mathematics (hundredsof thousands of th eorems each year). How much mathematics can there be? they are asked. Instructors in a Mathematical Experience course must be prepared t

Title:Patterns of Change [electronic resource] : Linguistic Innovations in the Development of Classical Mathematics
Author(s): Ladislav Kvasz
Date:2008
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book offers a reconstruction of linguistic innovations in the history of mathematics innovations which changed the ways in which mathematics was done, understood and philosophically interpreted. It argues that there are atleast three ways in whi ch the language of mathematics has been changed throughout its history, thus determining the lines of development that mathematics has followed. One of these patterns of change, called a re-coding, generates twodevelopmental lines. The first of them conne cting arithmetic, algebra, differential and integral calculus and predicate calculus led to a gradual increase of the power of our calculating tools, turning difficult problems of the pastinto easy exercises. The second developmental line connecting synth etic geometry, analytic geometry, fractal geometry, and set theory led to a sophistication of the ways we construct geometrical objects, altering our perception of formand increasing our sensitivity to complex visual patterns. Another important pattern of change, called relativization, is illustrated by the development of synthetic geometry, connecting Euclids geometry, projective geometry,non-Euclidean geometry, and Kleins Erlanger Programm up to Hilberts Grundlagen der Geometrie. In this development the notions of space and geometric object underwent deep and radical changes culminating in the liberation ofobjects from the supremacy of space and so bringing to existence geometric objects which space would never tolerate. The book offers tools of analysi s by means of which scholars and students of the history and philosophy of mathematicscan 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 thedevelopment of mathematical thought

Title:Mathematics and the Historians Craft [electronic resource] : The Kenneth O. May Lectures
Author(s): Glen Brummelen
Michael Kinyon
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Kenneth Ownsworth May (1915-1977) was a brilliant and influential mathematician, historian, and educator who founded the journal Historia Mathematica as well as the Canadian Society for the History and Philosophy of Mathematics.He viewed the practice of the history of mathematics as a unique melding of the crafts of mathematician and historian. This entails sensitivity to the mathematical content of the subject and to the various contexts in which it can beunderstood. Mathematical practitioners, for pedagogical reasons or to contextualize their own work, tend to focus on finding the antecedents for current mathematical theories in a search for how particular subdisciplines and resultscame to be as they are today. On the other hand, historians of math ematics bypass the current state of affairs, and are more interested in questions that bear on the changing nature of the discipline itself. The papers contained inthis volume exhibit 12 outstanding examples of historians approaching their craft in distin ct ways, yet consistent with Kenneth May's vision. Each paper is based on a keynote address, known as the Kenneth O. May Lecture, delivered atthe annual meeting of the Canadian Society for the History and Philosophy of Mathematics. This volume includes th e following contributions: * Ivor Grattan-Guinness, History or Heritage? An Important Distinction in Mathematics and forMathematics Education * Alexander Jones, Ptolemy's Mathematical Models and their Meaning * Jim Bennett, Mathematics, Instruments and Na vigation, 1600-1800 * Judith Grabiner, Was Newton's Calculus a Dead End? The Continental Influenceof MacLaurin's Treatise of Fluxions * Rdiger Thiele, The Mathematics and Science of Leonhard Euler (1707-1783) * Thomas Archibald and Louis Charbonneau, Math ematics in Canada before 1945: A Preliminary Survey * Karen Parshall, TheEmergence of the American Mathematical Research Community * Volker Peckhaus, 19th-Century Logic Between Philosophy and Mathemat
