Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"...a truly scholarly and balanced exposition..."-Zentralblatt für Mathematik "...crammed with insights, cautionary tales and a great deal of information about current research... will surely become a standard reference for students, teachers and researchers alike" -Annals of Science

"Martzloff, together with Karine Chemla and Catherine Jami, is part of a French research group on the history of Chinese mathematics. Together, they have made substantial contributions to the field. In particular, they have brought to the field a more sophisticated and reflective attitude towards the writing of history. … Martzloff remains the best introduction to the subject and his ‘Bibliographical Orientation’ at the end should open up a huge world of texts and historical studies for anyone who wants to go further." (Fernando Q. Gouvêa, MathDL – Online, October, 2006)
