From Galileo to Newton

Voorkant
Courier Corporation, 1 jan. 1981 - 379 pagina's
The near century (1630?1720) that separates the important astronomical findings of Galileo Galilei  (1564?1642) and the vastly influential mathematical work of Sir Isaac Newton (1642?1727) represents a pivotal stage of transition in the history of science. Tracing the revolution in physics initiated by Galileo and culminating in Newton's achievements, this book surveys the work of Huygens, Leeuwenhoek, Boyle, Descartes, and others. 35 illustrations.
