It contains many important results in (The pure mathematics of points and lines and curves and surfaces) geometry (Click link for more info and facts about number theory) number theory and the first algorithm as well. The Elements is still a valuable resource and a good introduction to algorithm. More than any specific result in the publication, it seems that the major achievement of this publication is the popularization of (The branch of philosophy that analyzes inference) logic and mathematical proof as a method of solving problems.

Angle Trisection by Archimedes of Syracuse(circa 287 - 212 B.C.)
Archimedes of Syracuse is popularily known for the law he discovered on occasion of taking his bath. "Eurika" he exclaimed and made it into the history. (Along with Newton and Gauss he is counted among the greatest mathematicians of all times. As an engineer he frustrated numerous attempts by the Romans to capture the city of Syracuse.) The problem of constructing an angle equal to the one third of the given one has been pondered since the times of antiquity. Probably to make the notion of 'geometric construction' more exciting the Ancient Greeks have restricted the allowed operations to using a straightedge and a compass. It's thus specifically forbidden to use a ruler for the sake of measurement. Three famous construction problems lingered until early 19th century when it was shown that it's impossible to solve them with the help of only a straightedge and a compass. The three problems are: to trisect a given angle, to double a cube, and to square a circle. However, one illicit solution that has been found in the works of Archimedes is demonstrated below Back to list Home

COURSE DESCRIPTION Introduction Mini-Course Goals There are three major goals that this course is intended to address:
  • Illuminate the lives of a variety of key scientific figures. Explain a variety of fundamental concepts in the modern scientific worldview. Make clear the processive nature of science and the specific method by which it operates.

    It is nonetheless priceless, because it contains a compendium of mathematical treatises by Archimedes of Syracuse. Most importantly, it includes the only copy of the treatise Method of Mechanical Theorems , in which Archimedes explained how he drew upon mechanical means to elucidate his mathematical theorems. It is also the only source in the original Greek for the treatise On Floating Bodies , in which Archimedes explores the physics of flotation and explains the formal proof for the principle of specific gravity.

Couldn't they calculate everything they wanted with about three? Or was it more the sport of finding pi?" No, three won't do it. Perhaps about 10 decimal places would give most calculations to the accuracy of measurement but not all. In any case, the interest in calculating pi to hundreds or thousands of decimal places is mostly a matter of testing the limits of computer hardware.

    [quote]Montecristo0612, If "Around 200 BCE, Archimedes of Syracuse found that pi is somewhere about 3.14 (in fractions, Greeks did not have decimals).", why do you start the post by declaring that Archimedes "discoved thousands of decimal places"? Also, I think it is stretching a point to declare Archimedes was the "First Discoverer of Pi": MANY people had worked with and calculated different values for pi of different accuracies. (Yes, I agree that Archimedes was one of the greatest mathematicians in history and his work with pi was of great importance.)[/quote]

    Mitochondrial DNA Studies
    Studies of mitochondrial DNA, which is inherited from the mother alone suggest modern humans sprang from a small stock of common ancestors 2 million years ago. Some great studies here report on the seven major human blood groups for the RH factor human blood antigen, which also suggests a common African ancestor 180,000 thousand to 200,000 thousand years ago. Seven genetic tribes and seven major blood groups, do they match each other? If you are genetically from tribe "Tara" are you are also blood group "O" ? Approximate separations for the groups are 100,000 thousand years between Africans and Asians, 50,000 thousand years between Asians and Australians and 35 - 40,000 thousand years between Asians and Europeans. Large scales studies of human mitrocondrial DNA by Professor Bryan Sykes in The Seven Daughters of Eve indicates that there are just seven clusters which account for 95% of modern day Europeans, who are related to one of seven distant clan mothers.

    Archimedes to Dositheus greeting.
    When I heard that Conon, who was my friend in his lifetime, was dead, but that you were acquainted with Conon and withal versed in geometry, while I grieved for the loss not only of a friend but of an admirable mathematician, I set myself the task of communicating to you, as I had intended to send to Conon, a certain geometrical theorem which had not been investigated before but has now been investigated by me, and which I first discovered by means of mechanics and then exhibited by means of geometry. Now some of the earlier geometers tried to prove it possible to find a rectilineal area equal to a given circle and a given segment of a circle; and after that they endeavoured to square the area bounded by the section of the whole cone and a straight line, assuming lemmas not easily conceded, so that it was recognized by most people that the problem was not solved. But I am not aware that any one of my predecessors has attempted to square the segment bounded by a straight line and a section of a right-angled cone [a parabola], of which problem I have now discovered the solution. For it is here shown that every segment bounded by a straight line and a section of a right-angled cone [a parabola] is four-thirds of the triangle which has the same base and equal height with the segment

    70. Pi History
    Around 200 BC, archimedes of syracuse found that pi is somewhere about 3.14 (infractions; Greeks did not have decimals). Pi (which is a letter in the Greek
    History of Pi Pi was known by the Egyptians, who calculated it to be approximately (4/3)^4 which equals 3.1604. The earliest known reference to pi occurs in a Middle Kingdom papyrus scroll, written around 1650 BC by a scribe named Ahmes. He began the scroll with the words: "The Entrance Into the Knowledge of All Existing Things" and remarked in passing that he composed the scroll "in likeness to writings made of old." Towards the end of the scroll, which is composed of various mathematical problems and their solutions, the area of a circle is found using a rough sort of pi. Around 200 BC, Archimedes of Syracuse found that pi is somewhere about 3.14 (in fractions; Greeks did not have decimals). Pi (which is a letter in the Greek alphabet) was discovered by a Greek mathematician named Archimedes. Archimedes wrote a book called The Measurement of a Circle. In the book he states that Pi is a number between 3 10/71 and 3 1/7. He figured this out by taking a polygon with 96 sides and inscribing a circle inside the polygon. That was Archemedes' concept of Pi. New knowledge of Pi then bogged down until the 17th century. Pi was then called the Ludolphian number, after Ludolph van Ceulen, a German mathematician. The first person to use the Greek letter Pi for the number was William Jones, an English mathematician, who coined it in1706.

    Archimedes of Syracuse
    Sir Isaac Newton
    Leonhard Euler

    Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
    These are my personal rankings, but most of the selections should have wide acceptance among mathematical historians. If the criteria were just depth and historical importance then the greats Georg Cantor (1845-1918), and (1811-1832) would be urging their names on to this list, but these are lacking somewhat in breadth , compared with the Top Ten, who each were outstanding in multiple fields. Most of the selections were easy, but choosing Riemann, Euclid and Leibniz to round out the list was difficult. Riemann was undoubtedly an outstanding genius, but several great mathematicians might be better choices based on their work's historical importance, for example (1596-1650) or Joseph-Louis Lagrange (1736-1813). Conversely Euclid's work has great historical significance, but much of it was probably borrowed from the more brilliant

    Archimedes ' father was Phidias, an astronomer. We know nothing else about Phidias other than this one fact and we only know this since Archimedes gives us this information in one of his works, The Sandreckoner. A friend of Archimedes called Heracleides wrote a biography of him but sadly this work is lost. How our knowledge of Archimedes would be transformed if this lost work were ever found, or even extracts found in the writing of others. Archimedes was a native of Syracuse, Sicily. It is reported by some authors that he visited Egypt and there invented a device now known as Archimedes' screw . This is a pump, still used in many parts of the world. It is highly likely that, when he was a young man, Archimedes studied with the successors of Euclid in Alexandria. Certainly he was completely familiar with the mathematics developed there, but what makes this conjecture much more certain, he knew personally the mathematicians working there and he sent his results to Alexandria with personal messages. He regarded
