This text offers a special account of Indian work in diophantine
equations during the 6th through 12th centuries and Italian work on
solutions of cubic and biquadratic equations from the 11th through
16th centuries. The volume traces the historical development of
algebra and the theory of equations from ancient times to the
beginning of modern algebra, outlining some modern themes such as
the fundamental theorem of algebra, Clifford algebras, and
quarternions. It is geared toward undergraduates who have no
background in calculus. For other wonderful titles written by this
author see: ""Euler through Time: A New Look at Old Themes"",
""Supersymmetry for Mathematicians: An Introduction"", ""The
Mathematical Legacy of Harish-Chandra: A Celebration of
Representation Theory and Harmonic Analysis"", and ""The Selected
Works of V.S. Varadarajan"".
