PEANO, Giuseppe. Applicazioni geometriche del Calcolo Infinitesimale.
Torino, Bocca, 1887

8vo, mm. 230x160; Legatura coeva tela; pp. XII, 334, [2]. Buono stato di conservazione. 

Rara prima edizione. Il volume costituisce lo sviluppo conseguente delle lezioni di calcolo tenute nel 1882-83. Work in which Peano introduces the basic elements of geometric calculus and gives new definitions for the length of an arc and for the area of a curved surface. Kennedy: “Of the many interesting things in this book, particular mention may be made of Peano’s notion of the measure of a point set. Cantor had already considered this problem, but his definition of ‘measure’ was such that the measure of the union of two disjoint sets could be less than the sum of the measures of the two sets.”
