Includes bibliographical references and index. Mostly the book gave me what I really wanted: greater insight into how a true mathematical mind ope Having a doctorate in mathematical physics was helpful in navigating some of the Physics-related concepts in this book.
Spine may show signs of wear. His teacher was Gauss's great granddaughter, Minna Waldeck Gauss. The dust jacket for hard covers may not be included. Book Description: This biography of Gauss, Germany's greatest mathematician, is easily the most comprehensive in English. Although I've read a lot of biographies that heavily detail the lives of their subjects, this is the only one I've found that is so exceptionally dull that I've had to give up on it, at least for Carl Friedrich Gauss.
Gauss and his associate Weber then built a laboratory to study magnetism, in which, among other things, they devised the world's first magnetic telegraph. He has been a member of the British Society for the History of Mathematics since its early days.
