Specifically designed as an integrated survey of the development of analytic geometry, this classic study takes a unique approach to the history of ideas. History of Analytic Geometry Dover Books on Mathematics. The author, a distinguished historian of mathematics, presents a detailed view of not only the concepts themselves, but also the ways in which they extended the work of each generation, from before the Alexandrian Age through the eras of the great French mathematicians Fermat and Descartes, and on through Newton and Euler to the "Golden Age," from 1789 to 1850 .

Boyer and Merzbach distill thousands of years of mathematics into this fascinating chronicle. From the Greeks to Godel, the mathematics is brilliant; the cast of characters is distinguished; the ebb and flow of ideas is everywhere evident.

History of Analytic Geometry - Carl B. Boyer. THE history of analytic geometry is by no means an uncharted sea. Every history of mathematics touches upon it to some extent; and numerous scholarly papers have been devoted to special aspects of the subject. What is chiefly wanting is an integrated survey of the historical development of analytic geometry as a whole. The closest approach to such a treatment is found in two articles by Gino Loria.
