Each chapter of this portrait of the evolution of mathematics examines the work of an individual - Archimedes, Descartes, Fermat, Pascal, Newton, Einstein, and others - to explore the mathematics of his era. Rather than a series of biographical profiles, readers encounter an accessible chronology of pioneering developments in mathematics. 1989 edition.
