“Makes the reader feel the inspiration that comes from listening to a great mathematician.”—Bulletin, American Mathematical Society A distinguished mathematician and educator enlivens abstract discussions of arithmetic, algebra, and analysis by means of graphical and geometrically perceptive methods. His three-part treatment begins with topics associated with arithmetic, including calculating with natural numbers, the first extension of the notion of number, special properties of integers, and complex numbers. Algebra-related subjects constitute the second part, which examines real equations with real unknowns and equations in the field of complex quantities. The final part explores elements of analysis, with discussions of logarithmic and exponential functions, the goniometric functions, and infinitesimal calculus. 1932 ed. 125 figures.
