Treatise on conic sections by Apollonius( Book )

125 editions published between 1896 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Active in Alexandria in the third century BCE, Apollonius of Perga ranks as one of the greatest Greek geometers. Building on foundations laid by Euclid, he is famous for defining the parabola, hyperbola and ellipse in his major treatise on conic sections. The dense nature of its text, however, made it inaccessible to most readers. When it was originally published in 1896 by the civil servant and classical scholar Thomas Little Heath (1861-1940), the present work was the first English translation and, more importantly, the first serious effort to standardise the terminology and notation. Along with clear diagrams, Heath includes a thorough introduction to the work and the history of the subject. Seeing the treatise as more than an esoteric artefact, Heath presents it as a valuable tool for modern mathematicians. His works on Diophantos of Alexandria (1885) and Aristarchus of Samos (1913) are also reissued in this series

The Greek astronomer and geometrician Apollonius of Perga (c.262-c.190 BCE) produced pioneering written work on conic sections in which he demonstrated mathematically the generation of curves and their fundamental properties. His innovative terminology gave us the terms 'ellipse', 'hyperbola' and 'parabola'. The Danish scholar Johan Ludvig Heiberg (1854-1928), a professor of classical philology at the University of Copenhagen, prepared important editions of works by Euclid, Archimedes and Ptolemy, among others. Published between 1891 and 1893, this two-volume work contains the definitive Greek text of the first four books of Apollonius' treatise together with a facing-page Latin translation. (The fifth, sixth and seventh books survive only in Arabic translation, while the eighth is lost entirely.) Volume 2 contains the fourth book in addition to other Greek fragments and ancient commentaries, notably that of Eutocius, as well as the editor's Latin prolegomena comparing the various manuscript sources

Main description: Das vierte Buch der Kegelschnitte besteht aus zwei Teilen, deren erster eine Theorie der Pole und der Polare darlegt; der zweite behandelt die Zahl der Schnitt- und Berührungspunkte beim Kegelschnitt. Das Buch war bisher nur in einer sehr fehlerhaften Version einer griechischen Rezension des Eutokios bekannt. Roshdi Rashed legt nun erstmals die Edition einer arabischen Übersetzung vor, deren Vorlage von dieser griechischen Textfassung unabhängig ist. Es handelt sich um eine wertvolle Wiederentdeckung, die daher auch in einem eigenen Band veröffentlicht wird.
