Mathematics is entrance gate to understand all physical phenomena and the mysteries of the existence. It is one of the languages of the human life. It expresses the lengthy statements through its symbols and in an exact form. Progress of Mathematics began from 17th Century. There has been opposition perpetuated by religious bodies from ancient times to suppress the mathematical and scientific investigations. It is the Mathematical Science which has enabled us to probe and understand Cosmos. Nature does not reveal her mysteries all at once. The time will come when latest trends in Mathematics will unravel the mysteries which are being grappled at present without much success.
This book is an attempt to explain the human endeavor concerning evolution and development of Mathematics through the millennia. One of the essential importance of this book is to bring out in a humble way the indispensability of Mathematics in modern life. It is essential as a matter of simple survival for us to understand and professionalize Mathematics in our day to day life.
Last Chapter is about Women Mathematicians. The idea behind this is to attract more and more women for future development of Mathematics. The author invites suggestions which could be considered for the improvement of the subsequent editions of this work.
