Commentary on the Algebra of Analysis and Algebra of Functions
- 66 Downloads
Karl Menger’s interest in the Algebra of Analysis (which later evolved into the Algebra of Functions) grew out of his experience teaching calculus to large classes of potential naval officers at Notre Dame University during the Second World War. Now throughout his life, Menger was impelled to uncover the basic structure underlying any mathematical area he was involved with, and to express this structure in explicit axiomatic form. So, since calculus is predicated on the behavior of functions under various operations, he resolved to elucidate the fundamental properties of these operations.
