The 19th Century saw an unprecedented increase in the breadth and complexity of mathematical concepts. Both France and Germany were caught up in the age of revolution which swept Europe in the late 18th Century, but the two countries treated mathematics quite differently. After the French Revolution, Napoleon emphasized the practical usefulness 5/5(27). Looking Ahead The International Mathematics Union has declared next year World Mathematical Year In keeping, they called for a compilation of problems to be worked on in the 21st : Kristin Leutwyler.

The 3rd century BC is generally regarded as the "Golden Age" of Greek mathematics, with advances in pure mathematics henceforth in relative decline. Nevertheless, in the centuries that followed significant advances were made in applied mathematics, most notably trigonometry, largely to address the needs of astronomers. [69].
