A to Z of Mathematicians (Notable Scientists) by Tucker McElroy

It is difficult to evaluate contemporary mathematicians without the benefit of a retrospective viewpoint, separated by several decades. This comprehensive single-volume A-to-Z reference covers both the past and present scientists who have significantly contributed to the field of mathematics. Including all of the central mathematicians, as well as other lesser-known persons in the field who made serious contributions, this inclusive reference covers the major areas of algebra, analysis, geometry, and foundational statisticians. Special features include indexes by field of specialization, nationality, and subject area; a helpful bibliography; and appendixes listing the mathematicians covered by country of birth, country of work, field of specialization, nationality, and subject area. Covering notable mathematicians from antiquity to the present, this is an ideal reference for middle and high school students. Entries include: Archimedes of Syracuse Georg Cantor Ren Descartes Euclid Leonhard Euler Fibonacci Carl Friedrich Gauss Kurt Gdel David Hilbert Pythagoras Srinivasa Aaiyangar Ramanujan (George Friedrich) Bernhard Riemann Brook Taylor John Von Neumann Zeno of Elea.
