Two interconnected and relevant changes in mathematics occurred between the middle of the 17th to the end of 18th century: the passage of analysis as a method to a discipline regularly taught in colleges and sometimes in universities by the second half of the 18th century, and the transformation of “mixed” mathematics into “physic mathematics” and later “applied” mathematics. This process was fostered, not always intentionally, both by prominent mathematicians and by figures that are today forgotten or considered small or less innovative, such as university lecturers, and faculty directors, and occurred at a different pace in different countries. In the first of this two-session symposium, we want to analyze the role of some contributions from Spain and Italy in the transformation of mathematical knowledge in the 18th century. In the second session, we will analyze the circulation and transformation of mathematical knowledge in 18th century Bohemia, and between Bohemia and foreign countries such as Spain. We will reflect on the treatment of new mathematics taught in the training of engineers and artillery, in private colleges, academies, universities, as well as about the change from mixed mathematics to physic mathematics. All these are framed in the background of political and institutional changes in the Spanish Bourbon Monarchy, in the Habsburg Empire and in Italy. We will consider the activity of important teachers and scholars who, despite being put aside in common historiography of mathematics, played a major role in disseminating “modern” mathematical theories such as infinitesimal analysis.
