From the reviews: "The chapters are really surveys of the existing literature. ... The book begins with an outline of early arithmetic and algebra ... . Travelling Mathematics provides a wonderful overview of the Arithmetic and a valuable account of its influence. Anyone interested in Greek mathematics and in the history of algebra and number theory will want to read Meskens' book and follow the many references provided." (Fernando Q. Gouv ê a, The Mathematical Association of America, January, 2011) "This book is a very good introduction to the literature available on Diophantus and the interpretations of his work, and provides the reader with solid information on the various editions, their history and their background. ... a must-read for anyone studying the number theoretic contributions by mathematicians from Bachet and Fermat to Euler and beyond." (Franz Lemmermeyer, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1204, 2011)
