Title | The calculus according to S. F. Lacroix (1765-1843) |

Authors | Domingues, J. |

Abstract | Silvestre François Lacroix (Paris. 1765 - ibid., 1843) was not a prominent mathematical researcher, but he was certainly a most influential mathematical book author. His most famous book is a monumental Traité du calcul différentiel et du calcul intégral (three large volumes, 1797-1800; a second edition appeared in 1810-1819) - an encyclopaedic appraisal of 18th-century calculus. He also published many textbooks, one of which is closely associated to this large Traité: the Traité élémentaire du calcul différentiel et du calcul intégral (first edition in 1802; four more editions in Lacroix's lifetime; four posthumous editions). |
