By Luis Saraiva, Conference History of Mathematical Scie

This publication explores the interplay among Europe and East Asia among the sixteenth and the 18th centuries within the box of mathematical sciences, bringing to the fore the position of Portugal as an agent of transmission of ecu technological know-how to East Asia. it truly is a massive contribution to figuring out this basic interval of medical heritage, starting with the coming of Vasco da Gama in India in 1498 and finishing with the expulsion of the Society of Jesus from Portugal in 1759. the previous occasion opened a brand new period in family among Europe and Asia, specifically concerning the flow of clinical wisdom, resulting in significant social and highbrow adjustments in either continents.

He worked as an Italian diplomat in China for more than thirty years in the first half of this century, and later donated them to the Societa Geografica Italiana.
