Item Description: Springer, Netherlands, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The purpose of presenting this book to the scholarly world is twofold. In the first place, I wish to provide for the English reader a translation of the earliest extant Arabic work of Hindi arithmetic. It shows this system at its earliest stages and the first steps in its development, a subject not yet well known except for readers of some Arabic publications by the present writer. This book is therefore of particular importance for students of the history of mathematical techniques. The medieval author, AI-UqHdisI, was, it seems, not noticed by bibliographers; neither was his work, which lay hardly noticed by modern scholars until 1960 when I happened to see a microfilm copy of it in the Institute of Arabic Manu- scripts in Cairo. A steady labour immediately followed to make a comparative study of the text together with over twenty other texts, some of them not yet known to scholars. This pursuit resulted in (i) a doctoral degree awarded to me in 1966 by the University of Khartoum, (ii) the publication of several texts in Arabic including the text here translated, and (iii) the publication of several articles in Arabic and English on the history of arithmetic in the Middle Ages. The second purpose of this book is to make the main results of my study available to the English reader. Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 1978. Bookseller Inventory # LIE9789400997745

Item Description: University of Aleppo, Aleppo, 1985. Original Wrappers. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 536 pp. Arabic text, figures, tables, index, Institute For The History of Arabic Science, University of Aleppo. Cover slightly soiled otherwise copy is in good condition. As background, Al-Iqlidisi ("the Euclidian") was an Arab mathematician whose Kitab al-Fusul Fi Al-Hisab al-Hindi (The Book of Chapters on Hindu Arithmetic) is the earliest known Arabic work discussing the positional use of the Hindu-Arabic numerals. This treatise on arithmetic is in four parts. The aim of the first part is to introduce the Hindu numerals, to explain a place value system and to describe addition, multiplication and other arithmetic operations on integers and fractions in both decimal and sexagesimal notation. The part second collects arithmetical methods given by earlier mathematicians and converts them in the Indian system. For example the method of casting out nines is described. The third part of the treatise tries to answer to the standard type of questions that are asked by students: why do it this way . ?, how can I . ?, etc. There is plenty of evidence here that al-Iqlidisi must have been a teacher, for only a teacher would know understand the type of problem that a beginning student would encounter. The fourth part has considerable interest for it claims that up to this work by al-Iqlidisi the Indian methods had been used with a dust board. A dust board was used because the methods required the moving of numbers around in the calculation and rubbing some out as the calculation proceeded. The dust board allowed this in the same sort of way that one can use a blackboard, chalk and a blackboard eraser. However, al-Iqlidisi showed how to modify the methods for pen and paper use. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 009734
