Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám by Omar Khayyam( Book )

60 editions published between 1879 and 2009 in 10 languages and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"RUBAIYAT (meaning quatrains) was originally the composition of Persian poet, mathematician and astronomer Omar Khayyam. Each of the quatrains was originally composed on a particular occasion and forms a complete poem in itself. The poem suggests withdrawal from the sorry scheme of things. Over the centuries Rubaiyat has gained immense fame for its romantic melancholy which still appeals to the senses. It was first published in March 1859 as an unpretentious and anonymous pamphlet, only to be later discovered for its true literary worth by Rossetti and Swinburne."--Jacket

"'Abel Fath Omar Bin Al-Khayyam was a Persian mathematician, astronomer, philosopher, physician and poet, most famous for his Rubaiyat, one of the classics of world literature. - His work greatly influenced the development of mathematics, particularly analytical geometry, and was unsurpassed for many centuries. - Although he is generally better known as a poet, his work as a philosopher, scientist and mathematician was a major contribution to the growth of human knowledge. - "Omar Al-Khayyam's famous book on algebra and equations is considered to be perhaps his most important contribution to mathematics. The book deals with the solution of quadratic and cubic equations. - Al-Khayyam solved all possible cases of such equations by using geometrical approaches, sometimes involving conic sections, parabolas and hyperbolas. - Historians of science, teachers of mathematics and mathematicians themselves will find the book both interesting and informative."--Jacket
