About the Author:

Dirk Jan Struik was conceived in Rotterdam in 1894 and burned through the greater part of his showing profession at MIT; he resigned in 1960. However, his Lectures on Classical Differential Geometry, republished by Dover in 1988, is as yet a profoundly respected great, just like his Concise History of Mathematics, one of the main Dover unique books in science and first distributed by Dover in 1948, which arrived at its present fourth changed release in 1987.

Reviews of A Concise History of Mathematics 

1. Rating 5/5

At the point when I was an understudy ( from elementary school to college level ), I was never taught of history of mathematics ( at least in an organized and formalized way, now and again there were references to singular and astounding anecdotes as Gauss youngster summarizing the first 100 natural numbers in quite a while).
Thus, getting a charge out of mathematics ( especially the least difficult one ), I was searching for something to explain and depict how mathematical speculation created with time. Although all the history of mathematics from its dawn to about 1950 and written in a short book is something exceptionally hard to realize ( if certainly feasible ), I suggest this beautiful book, where the history of mathematics is all around explained as far as main reasoning lines. Moreover, this book is rich with fascinating anecdotes and details on personal and academic relations among the greatest mathematicians of all time.

2. Rating 4.5/5

I don’t usually compose surveys, yet regarding this book, however, I think a reader needs some preparation.
However, as a college understudy who has taken and is going to take many unadulterated math courses, I started reading from Chapter 6, the seventeenth century. Notwithstanding, the greater part of my satisfaction came from finding the beginnings and settings of a ton of the hypotheses that I have considered in my courses.
I would imagine at that point, that for the individuals who have a little presentation to unadulterated math, the substance on the advancement of calculus, analysis, and later on geometry and algebra, would hold practically zero appeal.
Despite everything I have the final chapter and the earlier chapters to complete, however the seventeenth to the nineteenth century to me are the brilliant ages of mathematics. I say this probably because I am examining mathematics from that period at school. However, I would prescribe this book to any math understudies who might want to know the setting behind what they are learning in class.

Inside this book:

Starting with the old Near East, the creator follows the thoughts and strategies created in Egypt, Babylonia, China, and Arabia, investigating such original copies as the Egyptian Papyrus Rhind. He thinks about Greek and Roman advancements from their beginnings in Ionian logic to the fall of Constantinople; covers medieval European thoughts and Renaissance patterns; breaks down seventeenth and eighteenth-century commitments; and offers an enlightening composition of nineteenth-century ideas. However, each significant figure in numerical history is managed — Euclid, Archimedes, Diophantus, Omar Khayyam, Boethius, Fermat, Pascal, Newton, Leibniz, Fourier, Gauss, Riemann, Cantor, and numerous others.
However, for this most recent release, Dr. Struik has both changed and refreshed the current content and furthermore included another part of the arithmetic of the main portion of the twentieth century.
However, this minimized, elegantly composed history — first distributed in 1948, and now in its fourth updated release — depicts the principle inclines in the advancement of all fields of science from the most readily accessible records to the center of the twentieth century. Understudies, scientists, history specialists, authorities — to put it, everybody with an enthusiasm for science — will think that it’s fascinating and invigorating.
