From

From the Milestones in Discovery and Invention series, this volume presents 10 mathematicians, all male, and the ideas they developed. Apart from the thirteenth-century discovery of Fibonacci numbers and Pearson's late nineteenth-century development of statistical tools, the concepts discussed represent the work of mathematicians who are currently working or were active during the twentieth century, including John Nash and Edward Lorenz. Illustrated with a picture of the mathematician and other pictures or diagrams, each chapter can be read independently and concludes with its own chronology and briefly annotated lists of books, articles, and Web sites. Offering insights into personalities, the biographical accounts are often engaging. The sections pertaining to mathematical theories are usually clearly written, although the concepts are sometimes challenging, particularly in the later chapters. Appendixes include a broad chronology, a glossary, and lists of books, Internet resources, and math journals, societies, and organizations. Given the emphasis on modern discoveries, this book will help fill in gaps in collections on the history of mathematics—though readers seeking information about female contributors to the field will need to look elsewhere.
