Dear List,

As you may read below, I received a request from Abraham Arcavi,
who is looking for references on the history of graphic
representations in mathematics.

Please, any thoughtful comments and references are welcome.

Many thanks.

All the best, Julio

Gracias por tu pronta respuesta. No hay problema de mandar la pregunta al
foro. Estoy buscando referencias historicas que me permitan trazar una
historia conceptual de las representaciones graficas. Tengo varias fuentes
sobre origines, quisiera tener mas, pero por sobre todo me interesaria
conocer estudios que describan etapas y roles de las rep graficas o del
papel de la visualizacion en general en matematicas. Ciertamente los dibujos
sirvieron por siglos a la geometria, como ilustracion, como instrumentos
para pensar. Pero despues, y tardiamente, pasaron a otros dominios,
Representaciones de funciones, representaciones de datos en estadisticas,
etc.
Alguna idea?

Cordialmente

Abraham
