Good condition, sunning to front board, inside excellent.
The editorial board for the History of Mathematics series has selected for this volume a series of translations from two Russian publications, Kolmogorov in Remembrance and Mathematics and its Historical Development.
This book, Kolmogorov in Perspective, includes articles written by Kolmogorov's students and colleagues and his personal accounts of shared experiences and lifelong mathematical friendships. Specifically, the article, "Andrei Nikolaevich Kolmogorov. A Biographical Sketch of His Life and Creative Paths" by A. N. Shiryaev, gives an excellent personal and scientific biography of Kolmogorov.
The volume also includes the following articles: "On A. N. Kolmogorov" by V. I. Arnol'd, "In Memory of A. N. Kolmogorov" by S. M. Nikol'skii?, "Remembrances of A. N. Kolmogorov" by Ya. G.

Kolmogorov, "Newton and Contemporary Mathematical Thought" by A. N. Kolmogorov, and an extensive bibliography with the complete list of Kolmogorov's works-including the articles written for encyclopedias and newspapers. The book is illustrated with photographs and includes quotations from Kolmogorov's letters and conversations, uniquely reflecting his mathematical tastes and opinions. Co-published with the London Mathematical Society. Members of the LMS may order directly from the AMS at the AMS member price.
