A Tour of the Calculus

by David Berlinski

Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group | April 27, 2011 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Not yet rated | write a review
In its largest aspect, the calculus functions as a celestial measuring tape, able to order the infinite expanse of the universe. Time and space are given names, points, and limits; seemingly intractable problems of motion, growth, and form are reduced to answerable questions. Calculus was humanity's first attempt to represent the world and perhaps its greatest meditation on the theme of continuity. Charts and graphs throughout.
