Review of the book Using the Mathematics Literature, edited by Kristine K. Fowler, New York, Marcel Dekker, 2004. 389 pp., US $165, ISBN 0-8247-5035-7.

However, it is still an important addition to your library’s collection, a relevant resource for undergraduate and graduate student advisors, and perhaps a gift for the new librarian who will be working with your department.

The Opera Mathematica of Christoph Clavius was compiled in 1611-1612 and contains works within the fields of both pure and applied mathematics. One of the most famous selections from this set is, of course, Clavius exposition of the Gregorian calendar. Except for the Commentary on Theodosius (1721) and the Commentary on John of Holywood’s Spheres (1784), however, there are no English translations of Clavius’ works. As Fr. MacDonnell wrote in 2001, “He was considered an illustrious mathemati…
