At head of title: Scientific practices and the Portuguese expansion in Asia (1498-1759)
Includes bibliographical references.

"This book explores the interaction between Europe and East Asia between the 16th and 18th centuries in the field of mathematical sciences, bringing to the fore the role of Portugal as an agent of transmission of European science to East Asia. It is an important contribution to understanding this fundamental period of scientific history, beginning with the arrival of Vasco da Gama in India in 1498 and ending with the expulsion of the Society of Jesus from Portugal in 1759."
