A thorough review of mathematical notations, I know of no other tome that covers this material in the depth that this book uses. However, there are three improvements that come readily to mind. 1) This book is stodgy, written in a high scholarly style of the late 's/5(12). Appointed to a specially created chair in the history of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, he also wrote An Introduction to the Theory of Equations, A History of Mathematical Notations, and The Chequered Career of Ferdinand Rudolph Hassler.5/5(2). Swiss-American author, educator, and mathematician FLORIAN CAJORI () was one of the world's most distinguished mathematical historians. Appointed to a specially created chair in the history of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, he also wrote An Introduction to the Theory of Equations, A History of Mathematical Notations, and The 5/5(1). The author's coverage of obsolete notations — and what we can learn from them — is as comprehensive as those which have survived and still enjoy favor. Originally published in in a /5(2).
