The Prince of Mathematics: Carl
Friedrich Gauss by M. B. W. Tent
Great High Level Overview Of Gauss's Life
A wonderfully narrated tale following the life of Carl Friedrich Gauss, the
18th century mathematician, from his prodigious childhood to his
extraordinary achievements that earned him the title Prince of Mathematics
. Along the way, the author introduces her young readers to a different
culture, the era of small states in Germany where advancement on merits,
such as Gauss , was supported by enlightened rulers, competing for
intellectual excellence and economic advantage through scientific progress
in their small states. Based on extensive research of original and
secondary sources, the author has created a historical narrative that will
inspire young readers and even curious adults with a story full of human
touch and personal achievement.
Personal Review: The Prince of Mathematics: Carl Friedrich
Gauss by M. B. W. Tent
This was a great overview of Gauss's life and career. I have an
engineering background and used Gauss's mathematics during my college
days and engineering work. This book was written so that one could read
and appreciate it with a very limited understanding of algebra and
trigonometry. I knew very little about Gauss's life before reading this text,
and I am happy with what I learned about him.
This book gave several brief examples of how Gauss thought about math
problems as a young man. For example, the author describes several
mathematical problems that Gauss solved in a very unique way compared
to his peers (e.g. quickly finding the sum of all integers from 1 to 100). The
book contains descriptions of how a young Gauss approached and thought
about his unique solutions.
Several areas of Gauss's expertise were only briefly described (e.g. his
work on magnetism). I would have liked to have had more technical detail
included as an appendix to the text.
