Set theory is an autonomous and sophisticated field of mathematics that is extremely successful at analyzing mathematical propositions and gauging their consistency strength. It is as a field of mathematics that both proceeds with its own internal questions and is capable of contextualizing over a broad range, which makes set theory an intriguing and highly distinctive subject. This handbook covers the rich history of scientific turning points in set theory, providing fresh insights and points of view. Written by leading researchers in the field, both this volume and the Handbook as a whole are definitive reference tools for senior undergraduates, graduate students and researchers in mathematics, the history of philosophy, and any discipline such as computer science, cognitive psychology, and artificial intelligence, for whom the historical background of his or her work is a salient consideration Serves as a singular contribution to the intellectual history of the 20th century Contains the latest scholarly discoveries and interpretative insights

In answer to a need for a comprehensive work on dynamics, this volume is reissued after having been out of print for over thirty-vie years. Physicists, advanced engineers, mathematicians, and teachers will find material in this classic which has been omitted from newer, more narrowly specialized texts. It also serves as an excellent source for the background essential to studies in motion, rocketry, aerodynamics, advanced dynamics, etc. A wide range of topics is covered in unusually great depth, applying the important tools of ordinary and partial differential equations. The author has included a special section on differential equations and the higher analysis which will prove helpful to students wishing to review these subjects.
