History of Modern Science and Mathematics is an innovative, multi-volume encyclopedia for upper high school, university, and public library users. Organized topically around the various disciplines of science and mathematics--from algebra, anthropology, and astronomy to paleontology, physics, and trigonometry--this comprehensive reference work takes readers through scientific and industrial revolutions, outward to the far limits of space and inward to the tiniest particles.

Special features--on science and society and scientific institutions, for example--highlight and expand the content of the encyclopedia-style entries on each discipline.
