Originaltext und historischer und mathematischer Kommentar von Klaus Volkert
David Hilberts „Festschrift“ Grundlagen der Geometrie“ aus dem Jahre 1899 wurde zu einem der einflussreichsten Texte der Mathematikgeschichte. Wie kein anderes Werk prägte es die Mathematik des 20. Jahrhunderts und ist auch heute noch von größtem Interesse.
Aus der Perspektive eines Mathematikhistorikers schildert der Herausgeber die Entwicklung einer Axiomatik der Geometrie, die spätestens mit Euklids „Elemente“ (ca. three hundred v. u. Z.) begann und erst durch Hilbert zu einem vollständigen und handhabbaren procedure geführt wurde. Nach einer ausführlichen Erläuterung des Hilbertschen Textes wird seine Rezeption bis 1905 umfassend dargestellt und daran anschließend viele der von ihm ausgehenden weiteren direkten und indirekten Entwicklungen skizziert.
Die Faszination des Textes ist auch dem heutigen Leser direkt zugänglich, da Hilbert´s axiomatischer Ansatz ohne mengentheoretische Argumente oder formale Logik auskommt.

Force is likely one of the most simple ideas that needs to be understood so one can comprehend sleek technology; it's mentioned generally in textbooks in any respect degrees and is a demand in such a lot technology instructions. it's also the most tough - how may perhaps one concept be inquisitive about such disparate actual phenomena as gravity and radioactivity? Forces in Physics is helping the technology scholar by means of explaining how those principles initially have been built and gives context to the beautiful conclusions that scientists over the centuries have arrived at. It covers the background of all the 4 conventional primary forces - gravity, electromagnetism, susceptible nuclear strength, and the powerful nuclear strength - and indicates how those forces have, through the years, allowed physicists to raised comprehend the character of the actual world.
Forces in Physics: A historic point of view lines the evolution of the concept that from the earliest days of the traditional Greeks to the modern try to shape a intestine (Grand Unified Theory): Aristotle and others in historic Greece who built principles approximately actual legislation and the creation of forces into nature; Newton and others within the medical Revolution who found that forces like gravity utilized through the universe; the nineteenth century examinations of thermodynamics and the forces of the very small; and twentieth century developments—relativity, quantum mechanics, and extra complicated physics—that revolutionized the best way we comprehend strength. the amount incorporates a word list of phrases, a timeline of vital occasions, and a bibliography of assets priceless for extra research.
