Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898) wrote under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. As most folks know, he authored the famous children's classics Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Less well know is the fact that he was an outstanding mathematician. He authored books and pamphlets on mathematical subjects, including Enunciations of Euclid (1863), Guide to the Mathematical Student (1864), Euclid and His Modern Rivals (1879), and Euclid I and II (1882). His publication Pillow Problems is a collection of 72 mathematical problems involving arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, and probability. |
