". . . not anything lower than a huge contribution to the medical tradition of this world." — The big apple instances ebook Review
This significant survey of arithmetic, that includes the paintings of 18 extraordinary Russian mathematicians and together with fabric on either user-friendly and complicated degrees, encompasses 20 leading topic parts in arithmetic when it comes to their basic origins and their next subtle developement. As Professor Morris Kline of  ny college famous, "This distinctive paintings offers the superb landscape of  arithmetic right. it's the most sensible resolution in print to what arithmetic comprises either at the basic and complicated levels."
Beginning with an outline and research of arithmetic, the 1st of 3 significant divisions of the e-book progresses to an exploration of analytic geometry, algebra, and usual differential equations. the second one half introduces partial differential equations, besides theories of curves and surfaces, the calculus of diversifications, and capabilities of a posh variable. It furthur examines top numbers, the speculation of likelihood, approximations, and the position of pcs in arithmetic. the speculation of capabilities of a true variable opens the ultimate part, through discussions of linear algebra and nonEuclidian geometry, topology, practical  research, and teams and different algebraic systems.
Thorough, coherent factors of every subject are extra augumented via a variety of illustrative figures, and each bankruptcy concludes with a recommended interpreting checklist. previously issued as a three-volume set, this mathematical masterpiece is now to be had in a handy and modestly priced one-volume version, excellent for learn or reference.
"This is a masterful English translation of a good looking and bold mathematical masterpiece . . ." — Social Science
