Euclid's Elements of Geometry, with Greek and English texts in side-by-side columns.
This is an English translation of Bourbaki’s Fonctions d'une Variable Réelle. Coverage includes: functions allowed to take values in topological vector spaces, asymptotic expansions are treated on a filtered set equipped with a comparison scale, theorems on the dependence on parameters of differential equations are directly applicable to the study of flows of vector fields on differential manifolds, etc.
In Proclus' penetrating exposition of Euclid's method's and principles, the only one of its kind extant, we are afforded a unique vantage point for understanding the structure and strenght of the Euclidean system. A primary source for the history and philosophy of mathematics, Proclus' treatise contains much priceless information about the mathematics and mathematicians of the previous seven or eight centuries that has not been preserved elsewhere.
In this volume are included all of Gauss's number-theoretic works: his masterpiece, Disquisitiones Arithmeticae, published when Gauss was only 25 years old; several papers published during the ensuing 31 years; and papers taken from material found in Gauss's handwriting after his death. These papers include a fourth, fifth, and sixth proof of the Quadratic Reciprocity Law, researches on biquadratic residues, quadratic forms, and other topics. This reprint of the German translation from Latin of the second edition published in 1889 includes an extensive appendix and concludes with a commentary on the papers (with references, where appropriate, to the relevant pages of the Disquisitiones).
More than a study of shapes and angles, geometry reflects an amalgamation of discoveries over time. This book not only provides readers with a comprehensive understanding of geometric shapes, axioms, and formulas, it presents the field’s brilliant minds—from Euclid to Wendelin Werner and many in between—whose works reflect a progression of mathematical thought throughout the centuries and have helped produce the various branches of geometry as they are known today. Detailed diagrams illustrate various concepts and help make geometry accessible to all.
Excerpt from Euclid's Book on Divisions of Figures: With a Restoration Based on Woepcke's d104 and on the Practica Geometriae of Leonardo Pisano I. In all the problems it is required to divide the proposed figure into two parts having a given ratio. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
