Intertextual reference in 19th-century mathematics (1993)

unapi

Description “This paper shows that the study of intertextual reference--of the ways a text indicates its relation to other texts--provides a fruitful perspective in the study of science that deserves more attention than it has hitherto received. The paper examines intertextual reference in early 19th-century [British] mathematics, first surveying a variety of mathematical texts in the period and then examining in detail W.R. Hamilton's work on quaternions.”
