This set is an outstanding attempt to take full account as much as possible of History of Mathematics and Computer Science from ancient times to twentieth century. At the same time, an attempt has been made to avoid burdening the text with petty details and maintain a smooth presentation and paint a whole integrated panorama of History of Mathematics and Computer Science. This set has the obvious advantage of covering large departments of knowledge with the most ancient as well as recent informations.

In subject matter, an attempt has been undertaken by a careful division of topics to find a better balance. The major part of the material has been extracted from original sources. The point of view in the present work has been intended always to be objective, impartial and free from conventional platitudes, but this is an ideal and very difficult to attain. The main aim of this set is to provide a survey of History of Mathematics and Computer Science with the quest of the young student or the layman. It is hoped, that this set will encourage the reader to make his own investigations of the various scientific phenomena.
Throughout the process of compilation and editing of this set, sincere efforts have been made to make it as a ready reference for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Mathematics and Computer Science and also for those appearing for competitive examinations, research scholars, teachers and alike.
