Item description for A History of Chinese Mathematics by J. Gernet Jean-Claude Martzloff...

The book is made up of two mutually explanatory parts, the first devoted to the general, historical and cultural background, and the second to the development of each subdiscipline that together comprise Chinese mathematics. This section is organised topically rather than chronologically, and is enriched in each case by examples, guides on how to intepret the contextual setting and by exhaustive references - both mathematical and sinological. This makes the book uniquely accessible, both as a topical reference work, and also as an overview that can be read and reread at many levels of sophistication by both sinologists and mathematicians alike. Indeed anyone with an interest in Chinese culture or the history of ideas will derive great benefit from this book

Reviews - What do customers think about A History of Chinese Mathematics?

This is the book to read..  Mar 4, 2002
for anyone interested in the subject. The author treats both the
native tradition and the reception of Western mathematics with
the highest scholarship. One of the most significant themes is
the conflict between the combinatoric spirit of Chinese mathematics,
akin to modern group theory and algebra, and the synthetic
Euclidean system introduced by European missionaries.
The initial Chinese puzzlement at what seemed an artificially
contrived structure will amuse those who have endured traditional
geometry and those struggling with Chinese itself.
