By Alfred North Whitehead

Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947) was once both celebrated as a mathematician, a thinker and a physicist. He collaborated together with his former scholar Bertrand Russell at the first version of Principia Mathematica (published in 3 volumes among 1910 and 1913), and after a number of years educating and writing on physics and the philosophy of technological know-how at collage collage London and Imperial collage, used to be invited to Harvard to coach philosophy and the speculation of schooling. A Treatise on common Algebra used to be released in 1898, and used to be meant to be the 1st of 2 volumes, although the second one (which was once to hide quaternions, matrices and the overall conception of linear algebras) used to be by no means released. This publication discusses the final ideas of the topic and covers the themes of the algebra of symbolic common sense and of Grassmann's calculus of extension.
