### About this book

This book brings together for the first time the Kenneth May Lectures
that were given at the annual meetings of the Canadian Society for
History and Philosophy of Mathematics. All contributions are of high
scholarly value, yet accessible to an audience with a wide range of
interests. They provide a historian's perspective on mathematical
developments and deal with a variety of topics covering Greek applied
mathematics, the mathematics and science of Leonhard Euler,
mathematical modeling and phenomena in ancient astronomy, Turing and
the origins of artificial intelligence to name only a few.
Written for:

Mathematicians, historians of mathematics, graduate students
