A Manual of Greek Mathematics
This concise but thorough history encompasses the enduring contributions of the ancient Greek mathematicians whose works form the basis of most modern mathematics. Written by a distinguished scholar and mathematician, the well-written, nontechnical text is geared toward high school, college, and graduate students, teachers, and those seeking a historical perspective on mathematics. Topics include Pythagorean arithmetic, Plato's use and philosophy of mathematics, an in-depth analysis of Euclid's "Elements," the beginnings of Greek algebra and trigonometry, and other mathematical milestones.
