This book is concerned with the Muslims: their contributions in mathematics and the accompanying influence of Islam. The author shows how this Islamic influence not only permeated the Muslims' original thinking and research, but also the translations they made during the course of several centuries. The book attempts to correct misconceptions and provide information concerning Muslims and Islam, and to show the debt our mathematics owes medieval Islam.
