"The assortment, drawn from mathematics, algebra, natural and algebraic geometry and astronomy, is awfully fascinating and attractive." — Mathematical Gazette
This uncommonly fascinating quantity covers a hundred of the main recognized old difficulties of undemanding arithmetic. not just does the e-book undergo witness to the intense ingenuity of a few of the best mathematical minds of heritage — Archimedes, Isaac Newton, Leonhard Euler, Augustin Cauchy, Pierre Fermat, Carl Friedrich Gauss, Gaspard Monge, Jakob Steiner, and so on — however it offers infrequent perception and concept to any reader, from highschool math pupil to expert mathematician. this is often certainly an strange and uniquely priceless book.
The 100 difficulties are offered in six different types: 26 arithmetical difficulties, 15 planimetric difficulties, 25 vintage difficulties relating conic sections and cycloids, 10 stereometric difficulties, 12 nautical and astronomical difficulties, and 12 maxima and minima difficulties. as well as defining the issues and giving complete suggestions and proofs, the writer recounts their origins and background and discusses personalities linked to them. usually he supplies no longer the unique answer, yet one or less complicated or extra attention-grabbing demonstrations. in just or 3 cases does the answer suppose whatever greater than an information of theorems of common arithmetic; consequently, it is a ebook with an incredibly large appeal.
Some of the main celebrated and interesting goods are: Archimedes' "Problema Bovinum," Euler's challenge of polygon department, Omar Khayyam's binomial growth, the Euler quantity, Newton's exponential sequence, the sine and cosine sequence, Mercator's logarithmic sequence, the Fermat-Euler best quantity theorem, the Feuerbach circle, the tangency challenge of Apollonius, Archimedes' selection of pi, Pascal's hexagon theorem, Desargues' involution theorem, the 5 normal solids, the Mercator projection, the Kepler equation, decision of the placement of a boat at sea, Lambert's comet challenge, and Steiner's ellipse, circle, and sphere problems.
This translation, ready specially for Dover by means of David Antin, brings Dörrie's "Triumph der Mathematik" to the English-language viewers for the 1st time.
