By John B. Conway
This ebook illustrates connections among a number of classes taken through undergraduate arithmetic majors. As such it may be used as a textual content for a capstone direction. The chapters are basically self sustaining, and the teacher can select the themes that may shape the direction and therefore tailor the syllabus to fit the backgrounds and talents of the scholars. on the finish of one of these path the graduating seniors should still glimpse arithmetic no longer as a sequence of self sustaining classes yet as anything extra like an built-in physique of information. The e-book has various routines and examples in order that the coed has many possibilities to determine the cloth illustrated and fleshed out.

Immanuel Kant's Critique of natural cause is extensively taken to be the start line of the fashionable interval of arithmetic whereas David Hilbert was once the final nice mainstream mathematician to pursue very important 19th century principles. This two-volume paintings presents an outline of this crucial period of mathematical study via a delicately selected collection of articles.
James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) had a comparatively short, yet awesome existence, lived in his liked rural domestic of Glenlair, and variously in Edinburgh, Aberdeen, London and Cambridge. His scholarship additionally ranged huge - protecting all of the significant elements of Victorian usual philosophy. He was once essentially the most very important mathematical physicists of all time, coming basically after Newton and Einstein.
