A Functional History of Numbers (2 of 3)

In part one of this functional history of numbers we saw the development of various number systems we are mostly familiar with. In this part, we will see the development of many number systems that are important for our modern scientific needs, geometrically and computationally. The sad fact about these developments is that we are using and teaching less effective number systems today because of a “series of unfortunate events” that took place during the grand drama of human development of modern mathematics.

The Abstract

I’ve been dealing with mathematical abstractions most of my life, as a student then as a software engineer and faculty member, on various levels and forms. My experience is like trying to find a safe path in a big forest of data and ideas that keep on growing and changing each day.
