In regard to either the content material of 19th century arithmetic and the character of the background of arithmetic I discovered greatly from scripting this ebook. The try and placed Kovalevskaya's paintings in ancient context concerned analyzing dozens of vital papers through nice mathematicians. in lots of instances, I worry, the purport of those papers is healthier identified to lots of my readers than to me. If I endured regardless of misgivings, my excuse is this ebook is, in spite of everything, basically approximately Kovalevskaya. If experts in Euler, Cauchy, and so on.
