Gamma Exploring Euler's Constant PDF EPUB Ý Gamma gamma free, exploring pdf, euler's epub, constant kindle, Gamma Exploring book, Gamma Exploring Euler's Constant KindleAt the time this book came out I was going through parts of Whittaker's famous Modern Analysis This book was written when mathematicians still did mathematics They got their hands dirty They didn't immediately seek full generalization While mathematics will always possess what looks to the layman like hieroglyphic notation the notation employed in Whittaker's book reminds us that it is to be an aid to thought not an impediment or a pyrotechnic This is less the case today where mathematics is far professionalized than then; which is why I was so delighted by Gamma Gamma captures the spirit of the great age of 18th and 19th century mathematics with its feet firmly planted on the ground yet discovering things of great beauty It is a pleasure to follow Havil's exposition of Euler's thought processes as he uncovers Harmonic series the Zeta function and so on In fact I recommend this to a
