About this book

This book contains the papers developing out the presentations given at the International Conference organized by the Torino Academy of Sciences and the Department of Mathematics Giuseppe Peano of the Torino University to celebrate the 150th anniversary of G. Peano's birth - one of the greatest figures in modern mathematics and logic and the most important mathematical logician in Italy - a century after the publication of Formulario Mathematico, a great attempt to systematise Mathematics in symbolic form.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is the result of a conference held in 2008 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Giuseppe Peano’s birth and the 100th anniversary of one of his most famous works, the Formulario Mathematico. The nine articles survey various aspects of Peano’s work in mathematics and logic. … overall this small book provides a great way to begin exploring the work of Giuseppe Peano.” (Fernando Q. Gouvêa, The Mathematical Association of America, May, 2011)
