Celebrating the remarkable Jewish accomplishment in mathematics and physics, Ioan James profiles 20 mathematicians and 15 physicists born after 1800. He tells the life stories of each man or woman, setting them in historical context, from the German mathematician Carl Jacobi (1804–1851), born in the ‘years of opportunity’ following the legal emancipation of Jews in Europe, to the Polish mathematical logician Alfred Tarski (1901–1983). Off-mint.
