Unknown Quantity: A Real and Imaginary History of Algebra
John Derbyshire (au)
Brings the evolution of mathematical thinking to dramatic life beginning in the time of Abraham and Isaac and moving from Abel’s proof to the higher levels of abstraction developed by Galois and through modern-day advances. Explains how a simple turn of thought from “this plus this equals this” to “this plus what equals this?” gives birth to a whole new way of perceiving the world. Algebraists broke new ground when they discarded the simple search for solutions to equations and concentrated instead on abstract groups, a dramatic shift in thinking that revolutionized mathematics. “Leads readers on an intellectually satisfying and pleasantly challenging journey through the development of abstract mathematical thought.” Illustrations.
