Brainy Biographies: Part II
By Brittany Griffin Student Correspondent
still don't have to memorize any of this for your next academic tournament! Euclid of Alexandria:
  • Best known for his treatise, "The Elements." Also known as the "Father of Geometry." Developed "common notions" that served as general assumptions about mathematics. No one knows when and where he was born! His peers attacked his work because-ha!-it was too "thorough." For more information on Euclid of Alexandria:
  • Ivan Petrovich Pavlov: Won 1904 Nobel Prize for his works in the field of medicine. Linked physiological studies with psychology in his study of "conditioned reflexes." Before his interests in science, his original choice of profession was that of a priest. Cambridge University awarded him an honorary doctorate in 1912. For more information on Pavlov: Franz Kafka: Received his doctorate in law in 1906 from the University of Prague.

    333331 - Alexander the Great conquers Palestine, beginning the Hellenistic Period. c. 325 bce - euclid of alexandria is born. c. 322 bce - Aristotle dies.
    This timeline is distilled down from a more general timeline originally created for Phurba. It is meant to give a better idea of the linear history of the topics discussed in Cosmologic. Some dates given are simply there to give a better grasp of the timeperiods, comparatively. This document will be expanded and fleshed out heavily in time.
    I have cut the timeline back to 1000 ce as the endpoint, as we will be concentrating on the timeperiod of the first few centuries of the common era for quite some time.
    Items related to current discussion are rendered in bold print.
    c. 1948 bce - Abram (later Abraham) was born.
    c. 1400 bce - Moses was born.
    c. 624 bce - Thales of Miletus is born.
    c. 610 bce - Anaximander or Miletus is born.
    586 bce - The conquest of Judah by Babylon.
    c. 587-538 bce - The Babylonian Captivity.

    Incerta la cronologia di Euclide.
    Sicuramente fu anteriore ad Archimede e con ogni verosimiglianza dovette essere attivo all'epoca del primo Tolomeo (306-283 a.C.).
    La sua opera fondamentale Gli elementi Numerosi le fonti, primarie e secondarie, reperibili su Internet in relazione ad Euclide:
    Gli Elementi sono consultabili in una eccellente edizione curata da David E. Joyce della Clarck University. Si tratta di una traduzione e di un ampia guida basata sulla traduzione 'canonica' di Heath The thirteen books of Euclid's Elements translated from the text of Heiberg with introduction and commentary. Three volumes. University Press, Cambridge, 1908. Second edition: University Press, Cambridge, 1925. Reprint: Dover Publ., New York, 1956. Reviewed: Isis 10 (1928), 60-62.) che, a sua volta, seguiv l'edizione critica del testo greco di Heiberg-Menge
    Joyce, oltre alla guida e al commento, ha fornito la sua edizione ipertestuale anche di un notevole numero di figure, che costituiscono forse il pregio maggiore di quest'opera.
    La traduzione e il commento di Heath ed anche il testo greco originale degli Elementi sono consultabili presso il Perseus Projects della Tufts University.

    A 6 page paper discussing the history and development of the Fibonacci sequence; the development of associated ratios; and their applicability to visual images. Fibonacci published his sequence in 1202, and da Vinci used the concept of "thirds" in much of his work as did some other artists of the period. The paper provides the mathematical basis as well as illustration. da Vinci's "The Annunciation" is used for example purposes. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Ahmed ibn Yusuf
    Born: 835 in Baghdad (now in Iraq) Died: 912 in Cairo, Egypt. Ahmed ibn Yusuf wrote on ratio and proportion and it was translated into Latin by Gherard of Cremona. The book is largely a commentary on, and expansion of, Book 5 of Euclid's Elements . Ahmed ibn Yusuf also gave methods to solve tax problems which appear in Fibonacci's Liber Abaci . He was also quoted by Bradwardine, Jordanus and Pacioli.
  • Abu Kamil Shuja ibn Aslam ibn Muhammad ibn Shuja
    Born: about 850 in (possibly) Egypt. Died: about 930. Abu Kamil Shuja is sometimes known as al'Hasib and he worked on integer solutions of equations. He also gave the solution of a fourth degree equation and of a quadratic equation with irrational coefficients. Abu Kamil's work was the basis of Fibonacci's books. He lived later than al'Khwarizmi and his biggest advance was in the use of irrational coefficients.
  • Theon of Alexandria
    Born: about 335 in (possibly) Alexandria, Egypt. Died: about 395. Theon was the father of Hypatia and worked in Alexandria as a professor of mathematics and astronomy. He produced commentaries on many works such as Ptolemy's Almagest and works of Euclid. Theon was a competent but unoriginal mathematician. Theon's version of Euclid's Elements (with textual changes and some additions) was the only Greek text of the Elements known, until an earlier one was discovered in the Vatican in the late 19

    Boyer 116). The mathematician is a Greek known as euclid of alexandria,and the great work of mathematics is known as the Elements.
    Number Theory and Euclid's Elements
    The Greek mathematician Euclid was perhaps the greatest contributor to the advancement of mathematics. His Elements, a compilation of works on geometry, algebra and number theory, is one of the world's most well-read and studied work, second only to the Bible. Although the most commonly studied portion of Euclid's work in the Elements concerns geometry, Euclid's work in number theory was certainly as significant, if not more so, than his contributions in other areas. By exploring and proving parts of a deceptively simple section from Book VII of the Elements which shows how to find the greatest common divisor of two numbers by a process now known as the Euclidean algorithm, the foundations of number theory can be developed. Only one mathematician in all of history was able to compile everything that was known in mathematics during his lifetime into one work (Smith 104). If this alone is not awe-inspiring, consider that the same man, in addition to his skill as a compiler of data, made dozens of new developments in mathematics in his own right (Boyer 116). The mathematician is a Greek known as Euclid of Alexandria, and the great work of mathematics is known as the Elements. Although the Elements are among the most well-known and widely studied works in mathematics, surprisingly little is known about the life and personality of Euclid himself (Eves 141). According to Boyer, Euclid's life is so obscure that "no birthplace is associated with his name" (115) and many of his works were even attributed to another Euclid, Euclid of Megara, a student of Socrates who had little interest in mathematics and lived more than a century before the "real" Euclid (116).

    • Epicurus of Samos (341-270 B.C.). Founder of the philosophical school of Epicurianism which, similar to the Atomists, believed that atoms are fundamental parts of the real world. Believed that fate was governed by laws of nature and not some mysterious gods.
    • Straton (Lambsacus, 340-290 B.C.). Greek physicist. Conducted experiments leading him to discover that bodies accelerate when they fall. However, erroneously, he also believes that heavier bodies fall faster. Also studied the lever, but does not find it's law. His work emphasizes the use of experimentation for scientific research. Lived in Alexandria, then moved to Athens to head the Aristitle's Lyceum after Theophrastos.

    The Mathematics of Euclid (325-265 BC)(Greek)
    Euclid of Alexandria is well-known for his great work, The Elements , which is a compilation of all the Geometry of his time. However, Euclid's effort is more than just a simple compilation of previous works. It is the first systematic approach to Geometry; the first axiomatic approach of its kind. Although usually associated with Geometry, The Elements also contained some works on Number Theory. Although, the formal system advocated by Euclid is incomplete, for the majority of us Euclid's Geometry is good enough, because it is simple yet concise. In the 20th century, David Hilbert completed the system by increasing the number of axioms from 5 to 20, and proved that the resulting system is complete and consistent. However, Euclid's effort cannot be underestimated. In fact, The Elements remained the Geometry text for 2000 years and is still used because of its simplicity. An it is the fifth postulate of The Elements that sprout the various non-Euclidean Geometry known to us now.
