Digital Interactive Mathematical Maps

The "Digital Interactive Mathematical Maps" (DIMM) show the historical origin of the mathematical concepts as well as the interdependencies and connections between them for various areas of mathematics. This is visualized by a three-dimensional graph. One dimension represents time, while the other two dimensions represent inner-mathematical dependency and relationship.

To start: First select the mathematical area (geometry, algebra or calculus) under "Areas". Then click on "Interactive Map" to get to the generation of the three-dimensional representation. Clicking on "Timeline" opens a linear arrangement of the historical events. You can select German or English as language by clicking on the flags at the top right.
