Frasi David Eugene Smith

„The first epoch-making algebra to appear in print was the Ars Magna of Cardan“

—  David Eugene Smith
History of Mathematics (1925) Vol.2, Context: The first epoch-making algebra to appear in print was the Ars Magna of Cardan (1545). This was devoted primarily to the solution of algebraic equations. It contained the solution of the cubic and biquadratic equations, made use of complex numbers, and in general may be said to have been the first step toward modern algebra. p.384

„In 1673 he wrote his great work De Algebra Tractatus; Historicus & Practicus, of which an English edition appeared in 1685. In this there is seen the first serious attempt in England to write on the history of mathematics, and the result shows a wide range of reading of classical literature of the science.“

—  David Eugene Smith
History of Mathematics (1923) Vol.1, This work is also noteworthy because it contains the first of an effort to represent the imaginary number graphically by the method now used. The effort stopped short of success but was an ingenious beginning.
