History of Mathematics in Hungary Until the 20th Century
This unique book treats the history of mathematical research in Hungary fromthe earliest times to the beginning of the 20th century. Szenassy bases his text on comprehensive source material to show the development of mathematical research in Hungary. Another important feature is the rich background information on the Hungarian social history presented ineach chapter. In five well-structured chapters, each followed by a detailed bibliography, the author treats the mathematical culture in Hungary from the times of elementary arithmetics to the times of Jeno Hunyady, Gyula Konig, Gyula Valyi and Zoard Geocze. The author writes in a charming lively way which makes reading the book a real pleasure. The work is rounded off by a large number of illustrations, photographs and facsimiles.
