Book, Nouvelles Tables Logarithmiques à 36 décimales

Description:

The Venezuelan mathematician and engineer Francisco José Duarte (1883-1972) published these tables in Paris in 1933. They contain listings of values of logarithms of prime numbers to 10007, and of natural numbers from 1 to 1000. Also included is a table of logarithms of small minutes of arc and a table of logarithms of factorials from 3050! To 10000! (with the numbers increasing by 50s). All the results are given to 36 decimal places.

For a biographical information about Duarte, see the MacTutor website.

This example of the book was owned by the German- American statistician, mathematician and computer pioneer Carl Hammer (1914-2004).
