A Mathematician's Journeys: Otto Neugebauer and Modern

This publication explores aspects of Otto Neugebauer's occupation, his influence at the historical past and perform of arithmetic, and the ways that his legacy has been preserved or reworked in contemporary a long time, watching for the instructions during which the examine of the historical past of technology will head within the twenty-first century.

Neugebauer, greater than the other pupil of contemporary occasions, formed the way in which we understand premodern technological know-how. via his scholarship and impression on scholars and collaborators, he inculcated either an method of old study on historical and medieval arithmetic and astronomy via designated mathematical and philological examine of texts, and a imaginative and prescient of those sciences as platforms of data and technique that unfold outward from the traditional close to japanese civilizations, crossing cultural barriers and circulating over a big geographical expanse of the previous international from the Atlantic to India.
