Littlewood's Miscellany

£10.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Littlewood's Miscellany, which includes most of the earlier work as well as much of the material Professor Littlewood collected after the publication of A Mathematician's Miscellany, allows us to see academic life in Cambridge, especially in Trinity College, through the eyes of one of its greatest figures. The joy that Professor Littlewood found in life and mathematics is reflected in the many amusing anecdotes about his contemporaries, written in his pungent, aphoristic style. The general reader should, in most instances, have no trouble following the mathematical passages. For this publication, the new material has been prepared by Bla Bollobs; his foreword is based on a talk he gave to the British Society for the History of Mathematics on the occasion of Littlewood's centenary.

This 1997 copy shows slight signs of wear, including marks at the top of the front cover, ffep and title page. Apart from this the contents are clean and tight with no inscriptions.
