La biblioteca di Maria Gaetana Agnesi (2021)


By examining the books and journals in Agnesi’s library, of which the unpublished Inventory is here provided, the cultural and scientifc training of Maria Gaetana Agnesi is outlined in the national and international context of the circulation of mathematical knowledge. We focus in particular on the possible stimuli and infuences received from the works consulted and/or studied not only in conceiving her treatise "Instituzioni analitiche ad uso della gioventù italiana (1748)," but also in the choices of language and elegance in style, in the organization of theoretical contents and exercises, in the execution of fgures and arrangement of the formulas.
