Aims, contents and method of the course

This lecture will give an introduction to the history of mathematics and logics. We will cover their beginnings in Egypt and Mesopotamia, Greek mathematics of the Hellenistic period, Islamic and European medieval mathematics, and mathematics at the beginning of the modern age.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam after the end of the semester. The only permitted aids are ruler and compass (i.e., pocket calculators are not permitted).
