Matroid thought was once invented in the midst of the Thirties by way of mathematicians independently, particularly, Hassler Whitney within the united states and Takeo Nakasawa in Japan. Whitney turned well-known, yet Nakasawa remained nameless until two a long time in the past. He left in simple terms 4 papers to the mathematical group, them all written in the course of the Thirties. It used to be a foul time to have lived in a rustic that had develop into as eccentric as attainable. simply as Nazism turned progressively more flamboyant in Europe within the Thirties, Japan grew to become an increasing number of esoteric and fanatical within the similar period of time. This publication explains the little that's recognized approximately Nakasawa’s own existence in a Japan that had, between different mess ups, misplaced keep an eye on over its army. This ebook includes his 4 papers in German and their English translations in addition to a few prolonged statement at the historical past of Japan in the course of these years. The publication additionally comprises 14 images of him or his family members. even if the veil of puzzle surrounding Nakasawa’s existence has basically been in part lifted, the paintings provided during this e-book speaks eloquently of a sad loss to the mathematical community.
