Reading Mathematical Texts 2014–2015

Organiser : Agathe Keller - CNRS, REHSEIS–SPHERE

We read original sources and their translations, presented by their translator.
Texts this year will deal on the one hand on cultures of computations and on the other on the relations between mathematical texts and «texts of the practice» in commercial and administrative contexts.
