________________Graeme  Cohen________________

THE FIRST AND ONLY BOOK ON THE HISTORY OF THE MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES IN AUSTRALIA

 

A comprehensive account from the days when navigators used mathematics to help put a new continent on the world map—right up to 2006, the 50th anniversary of the Australian Mathematical Society. Counting Australia In covers all the university mathematics and statistics departments and includes the relevant history of Australia’s Royal Societies, ANZAAS, the CSIRO and other important organisations.

HARDBOUND :: 448 PAGES :: 85 ILLUSTRATIONS :: THOROUGHLY INDEXED

 

THE AUTHOR: Counting Australia In is the culmination of years of research by Graeme Cohen. With a PhD from the University of New South Wales, Graeme retired as associate professor from the University of Technology, Sydney in 2002 after 36 years. His research interests include elementary computational number theory and applications of mathematics to sport. This book has led to an MA in public history from UTS.
