    One thought on “Christian Huygens”

    1. One of the few scholarly books or journal articles on Huygens that I could find. I found it strange, given his genius and scientific contributions. Part II has a concise mathematical analysis of "Horologium Oscillatorium," and Huygen's wave theory, optics and work.
