Good books about Newtonian mathematics.

  • #1
Any one recommend some good books about Newtonian maths, his theories etc, Calculus, Liebnitz ,whatever, or any entry level calculus books? I'm asking on behalf of a friend who wants to get back into maths, so it should be from an introductory level and up?

I learnt mine from text books, that aren't widely available, ie their university material, so any help would be appreciated.

17th century mathematics is obsolete in terms of notation and rigorousness. It would hardly benefit your friend to read such books.
I don't think he meant for his friend to read Principia :biggrin: (which, of course, you can get by typing prin... into google).

SD - does he want a popular maths book or a textbook?

e2a: i see a new reply...

He's trying to get back into maths so anything that helps him do that.

The book I recommended will do a good job in that respect, I believe. It's not very expensive and gives good insight on mathematics for people that have either forgotten it or feel weak in it.
