Women in Mathematics provides a history from the 6th century bc to the present of women's contribution to mathematics. Women were not emancipated to receive a full education until the 19th century, and therefore their contribution to mathematics was more of a "helping hand" than a firm discovery of historical landmarks in by:   Women in Mathematics isn't quite the book I wanted it to be. Written in the 70s, it's fairly dated and Western-centric, and I'm sure there are some non-European women in math history who would have been highlighted had this been written today/5.

Complexities: Women in Mathematics is an edited volume on women in mathematics that "contains the stories and insights of more than eighty female mathematicians". It was edited by Bettye Anne Case and Anne M. Leggett, based on a collection of material from the Newsletter of the Association for Women in Mathematics, and published by Princeton University Press in . The committee's remit is to address issues relating to the involvement, retention and progression of women in mathematics. It should also support and promote the recognition of the achievements of women mathematicians. It should discuss and be ready to support appropriate initiatives to this end coming from either groups or individuals.   This volume offers a unique collection of outstanding contributions from renowned women mathematicians who met in Cambridge for a conference under the auspices of European Women in Mathematics (EWM). These contributions serve as excellent surveys of their subject areas, including symplectic topology, combinatorics and number theory. An important (but largely unknown and underrated) mathematician and scholar of the 14th Century was the Frenchman Nicole Oresme. He used a system of rectangular coordinates centuries before his countryman René Descartes popularized the idea, as well as perhaps the first time-speed-distance graph. Also, leading from his research into musicology, he was the first to 5/5(39).
