Honors Seminar

An Honors Seminar on the history of mathematics was offered in addition to the usual history course in Spring 2002, focussing on the history of algebra.

Texts:
Varadarajan, Algebra in Ancient and Modern Times

Each of the nine students wrote a term paper on a topic connected with the history of mathematics. These papers have been partially converted to HTML as of May 2002.
