Most mathematicians' knowledge of Euclid's lost work on Porisms comes from a very brief and general description by Pappus of Alexandria. While Fermat and others made earlier attempts to explain the Porisms, it is Robert Simson who is generally recognised as the first person to achieve a genuine insight into the true nature of the subject. In this book, Ian Tweddle, a recognised authority on 18th century Scottish mathematics, presents for the first time a full and accessible translation of Simson's work. Based on Simson's early paper of 1723, the treatise, and various extracts from Simson's notebooks and correspondence, this book provides a fascinating insight into the work of an often-neglected figure. Supplemented by historical and mathematical notes and comments, this book is a valuable addition to the literature for anyone with an interest in mathematical history or geometry.

Lange bevor die Schrift entwickelt wurde, hat der Mensch geometrische Strukturen wahrgenommen und systematisch verwendet: ob beim Weben oder Flechten einfacher zweidimensionaler Muster oder beim Bauen mit dreidimensionalen Körpern. Das Buch liefert einen faszinierenden Überblick über die geometrischen Vorstellungen und Erkenntnisse der Menschheit von der Urgesellschaft bis hin zu den mathematischen und künstlerischen Ideen des 20. Jahrhunderts.

Die Entstehung, Entwicklung und Wandlung der Algebra als Teil unserer Kulturgeschichte beschreiben Wissenschaftler von fünf Universitäten. Ursprünge, Anstöße und die Entwicklung algebraischer Begriffe und Methoden werden in enger Verflechtung mit historischen Ereignissen und menschlichen Schicksalen dargestellt. Ein erster Spannungsbogen reicht von den Frühformen des Rechnens mit natürlichen Zahlen und Brüchen zur Lösung einfacher Gleichungen bis hin zur Lösung von Gleichungen dritten und vierten Grades in der Renaissance. Von den misslungenen Versuchen zur Lösung allgemeiner Gleichungen höheren Grades im 17 Jh. zieht sich ein weiterer Bogen zu den berühmten Beweisen des Fundamentalsatzes der Algebra durch Gauß und den genialen Ideen des jungen Galois. Die Wandlung der Algebra von der Gleichungslehre zur Theorie algebraischer Strukturen wird danach ebenso beschrieben, wie die völlig neuen Akzente, die die Computeralgebra in neuester Zeit gesetzt hat. Viele neue farbige Abbildungen bereichern die inhaltlichen Aktualisierungen und Textergänzungen.
