George Boole, the daddy of Boolean algebra, released An research of the legislation of idea, a seminal paintings on algebraic common sense, in 1854. during this research of the elemental legislation of human reasoning, Boole makes use of the symbolic language of arithmetic to check the character of the human brain.

Example text

Tommi Nikkilä) at that instant the length of the pyramid’s shadow equaled the height of the pyramid. Thales has been credited with the discovery of many interesting facts about geometry. Perhaps the stories are true. Compared with descriptions of the accomplishments of the Egyptians, historical accounts of Thales make him look very well informed, indeed. In the late 19th century, however, as archeologists began to uncover Mesopotamian cuneiform tablets and scholars began to decode the marks that had been pressed into them, they were surprised, even shocked, to learn that more than a thousand years before Thales, the Mesopotamians had a knowledge of mathematics that far exceeded that of the Egyptians and probably of Thales as well.

11. Chicago: Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1952) Unfortunately by the time The Method was rediscovered early in the 20th century, mathematics had moved on, and Archimedes’ hope remained largely unfulfilled. Conics by Apollonius of Perga Little is known of the life of Apollonius of Perga (ca. –ca. ). Apollonius was born in Perga, which was located in what is now Turkey. He was educated in Alexandria, Egypt, probably by students of Euclid. He may have taught at the university at Alexandria as a young man.

He also is able to use his spiral to solve the classical problem of trisecting an arbitrary angle, but because his solution cannot be completed by using only a straightedge and compass, he is not successful in solving the problem as posed. Major Mathematical Works of Greek Geometry 33 Archimedes was also interested in computing various areas, a problem of great importance in mathematics and physics. In Quadrature of the Parabola he finds an area bounded by a parabola and a line. To do this he makes use of the method of exhaustion, an idea that foreshadowed calculus.
