Mathematics in Search of History

Donald Barry 

November 2000, Volume 93, Issue 8, Page 647

Abstract:
The author argues that the history of mathematics is a fluid field within which lively debate occurs. He shares a math problem that requires a community of scholars to simulate the process by which the history of mathematics is actually developed.
