The universality of mathematics. Pt. 2. The distant scene. (English)
Consortium, No. 86, 5-8 (2004).

Such a partitioning of history raises questions about what was happening elsewhere in the world in key time intervals. What mathematical achievements are thus identifiable in non-western culture beginning with the Dawn of History and extending through the time period of the Renaissance? (orig.)
