Math History

Parent Category: Math and Arithmetic
Far more interesting than one might first expect, the history of mathematics is filled with bitter rivalries, political machinations, and incredible innovations by some of the most amazing minds in history. Post all questions concerning individual mathematicians, the development of mathematical theories, and the sociological impact that resulted into this category.

He showed us about gravity, giving a huge boost to the scienceof astronomy. . ++++ . He also invented (or discovered?) the profoundly important fieldof Calculus - though others argue the credit belongs to the Germanmathematician Leibnitz. Generally now though, both men arecredited, as they...
They're actually many but I'll just mention 5 for eachnationalities. 1. BRITISH MATHEMATICIANS * John Adair * John Craig * James Gregory (or James Gregorie) * William Jones * Thomas Rudd 2. ENGLISH MATHEMATICIANS * Thomas Allen * Robert Anderson * John Babington * Robert Wood * Isaac Newton 3...
He didn't invent, but rather used the word, "al-jabr," which means "restoration" in Arabic, to describe his method of defining an unknown quantity as a variable and then manipulating it within an equation to arrive at its value. In other words, "al-jabr" means to perform an algebraic process, hence...

Nikolaus Kopernikus was a Renaissance mathematician and astronomerwho formulated a model of the universe that placed the Sun ratherthan the Earth at the center of the universe.The publication ofthis model in his book De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On theRevolutions of the Celestial Spheres)
Newton only thought of the concept of gravity*, put a value toit and divided some laws to do with it. Gravity is still unproven,there is no evidence to prove its existence. . *I'm not sure if this is true but he supposedly thought ofgravity because he was sat under a tree and an apple fell on...

In general, the Laplace operator in n dimensions is ∇ 2 = (∂/∂ x 1 ) 2 + (∂/∂ x 2 ) 2 + ... + (∂/∂ x n ) 2 , and the eigenfunctions are the solutions f ( x 1 , x 2 , ..., x n ) of the partial differential equation: ∇ 2 f = - λ f , ...
