In this early textbook by mathematician Augustus De Morgan and first published in 1836, serious students of math will find useful lessons, explanations, and diagrams. Math and math textbooks of his time were found to be generally inaccessible to the public at large, so De Morgan, who believed that everyone should be educated in mathematics because it was so essential to science and modern life, relies on simple, straightforward, and easy-to-understand language, despite the depth of his topic. Among the areas covered here are: infinitely small quantities, infinite series, ratios of continuously increasing or decreasing quantities, and algebraical geometry.British mathematician Augustus De Morgan (1806-1871) invented the term mathematical induction. Among his many published works is Trigonometry and Double Algebra and A Budget of Paradoxes.
"First published in 1854, this is the classic treatise by British mathematician and philosopher GEORGE BOOLE (18151864) in which he develops a system for representing logic in algebraic form. Expanding on ideas first presented in his 1847 pamphlet The Mathematical Analysis of Logic, Boolefor whom the mathematical term boolean was coineddiscusses: derivation of his laws principles of symbolic reasoning conditions of a perfect method general method in probabilities Aristotelian logic and more. A foundational work by the thinker who paved the way for modern electronics and our information age, this is must-reading for students of mathematics and the history of contemporary science."
