Title  Mathematics of India: Concepts, Methods, Connections 
Author(s)  P. P. Divakaran 
Publication  New Delhi, Springer, 2018. 
Description  xi, 441p. 
Series  (Culture and History of Mathematics) 
Abstract Note  This book identifies three of the exceptionally fruitful periods of the millennialong history of the mathematical tradition of India: the very beginning of that tradition in the construction of the nowuniversal system of decimal numeration and of a framework for planar geometry; a classical period inaugurated by Aryabhata’s invention of trigonometry and his enunciation of the principles of discrete calculus as applied to trigonometric functions; and a final phase that produced, in the work of Madhava, a rigorous infinitesimal calculus of such functions. The main highlight of this book is a detailed examination of these critical phases and their interconnectedness, primarily in mathematical terms but also in relation to their intellectual, cultural and historical contexts.
Recent decades have seen a renewal of interest in this history, as manifested in the publication of an increasing number of critical editions and translations of texts, as well as in an informed analytic interpretation of their content by the scholarly community. The result has been the emergence of a more accurate and balanced view of the subject, and the book has attempted to take an account of these nascent insights. As part of an endeavour to promote the new awareness, a special attention has been given to the presentation of proofs of all significant propositions in modern terminology and notation, either directly transcribed from the original texts or by collecting together material from several texts.

Title  Information and interaction: Eddington, Wheeler, and the Limits of Knowledge 
Author(s)  Ian T. Durham (ed.);Dean Rickles (ed.) 
Publication  Cham, Springer, 2017. 
Description  xxiii 212p. 
Abstract Note  In this essay collection, leading physicists, philosophers, and historians attempt to fill the empty theoretical ground in the foundations of information and address the related question of the limits to our knowledge of the world.
Over recent decades, our practical approach to information and its exploitation has radically outpaced our theoretical understanding  to such a degree that reflection on the foundations may seem futile. But it is exactly fields such as quantum information, which are shifting the boundaries of the physically possible, that make a foundational understanding of information increasingly important. One of the recurring themes of the book is the claim by Eddington and Wheeler that information involves interaction and putting agents or observers centre stage. Thus, physical reality, in their view, is shaped by the questions we choose to put to it and is built up from the information residing at its core. This is the root of Wheeler’s famous phrase “it from bit.” After reading the stimulating essays collected in this volume, readers will be in a good position to decide whether they agree with this view.
