History of Binary and Other Nondecimal Numeration.
Glaser, Anton
This study traces the development of nondecimal numeration from the 16th century to the present. The first six chapters detail the contributions of mathematicians as well as people from other fields. Applications to computers are covered in one chapter, while another chapter discusses the coverage of numeration systems in college textbooks for future elementary school teachers, in School Mathematics Study Group (SMSG) seventh grade materials, and in references for secondary school teachers. The final chapter consists of a chronology of important events in the development of numeration systems since 1500 A.D. There is a bibliography at the end of each chapter. (DT)
