A Comprehensive Textbook of Classical Mathematics: A Contemporary Interpretation

£19.99

Product description

This book is in generally good condition. The spine demonstrates creasing along its length, and there is staining visible on the bottom of the pages when the book is closed. The front and rear covers, both of which are laminated, are in good condition, with minimal creasing.

The aim is this book is to assist those who wish to cross the gulf between eighteenth century mathematics and the outlook of contemporary mathematicians. The book assumes that the reader has a knowledge of elementary classical mathematics, including calculus, arithmetic, algebra, and analytical geometry, all of which are expressed in a unified language of sets and functions before leading the reader on to more advanced ideas.

The approach of the authors ensures that, when an idea is complex, it is met several times and in different ways. One of their main purposes is to encourage originality of thought, and in doing this, they raise questions of opinion which are not traditionally regarded as part of mathematical instruction.
