About this book

This volume contains eleven papers that have been collected by the Canadian Society for History and Philosophy of Mathematics/Société canadienne d’histoire et de philosophie des mathématiques. It showcases rigorously-reviewed contemporary scholarship on an interesting variety of topics in the history and philosophy of mathematics, as well as the teaching of the history of mathematics.  Topics considered include
  • The mathematics and astronomy in Nathaniel Torperly’s only published work, Diclides Coelometricae, seu valvae astronomicae universal
  • Connections between the work of Urbain Le Verrier, Carl Gustav Jacob Jacobi, and Augustin-Louis Cauchy on the algebraic eigenvalue problem
  • An evaluation of Ken Manders’ argument against conceiving of the diagrams in Euclid’s Elements in semantic terms
  • The development of undergraduate modern algebra courses in the United States
  • Ways of using the history of mathematics to teach the foundations of mathematical analysis
Written by leading scholars in the field, these papers are accessible not only to mathematicians and students of the history and philosophy of mathematics, but also to anyone with a general interest in mathematics.
