Jan de Witt's Elementa curvarum linearum by Johan de Witt ( )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Following on from the 2000 edition of Jan De Witt's Elementa Curvarum Linearum, Liber Primus, this book provides the accompanying translation of the second volume of Elementa Curvarum Linearum (Foundations of Curved Lines) ... Elementa Curvarum Linearum, Liber Secondus moves forward from the construction of the familiar conic sections covered in the Liber Primus, with a discussion of problems connected with their classification; given an equation, it covers how one can recover the standard form, and additionally how one can find the equation's geometric properties."--Publisher description
Jan de Witt's Elementa curvarum linearum, liber primus by Johan de Witt ( Book )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is an English translation of the first textbook on Analytic Geometry, written in Latin by the Dutch statesman and mathematician Jan de Witt soon after Descartes invented the subject. De Witt (1625-1672) is best known for his work in actuarial mathematics ("Calculation of the Values of Annuities as Proportions of the Rents") and for his contributions to analytic geometry, including the focus-directrix definition of conics and the use of the discriminant to distinguish among them. In addition to the translation and annotations, this volume contains an introduction and commentary, including a discussion of the role of conics in Greek mathematics."--BOOK JACKET

Grepen uit de geschiedenis van de wiskunde by A. W Grootendorst ( Book )
2 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in Dutch and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Deze bundel bevat opstellen over zeer diverse onderwerpen uit de geschiedenis van de wiskunde. Voor een deel zijn het verhandelingen die de auteur, hoogleraar aan de faculteit voor Technische Wiskunde en Informatica, reeds eerder in vaktijdschriften deed verschijnen; er zijn echter ook stukken oppenomen die speciaal voor dit boek zijn geschreven. Na een algemeen orienterend hooidstuk volgen enkele opstellen over de wiskunde bij de Grieken, waarin wordt getoond hoe de Grieken met scherpzinnige en doorzichtige methoden fundamentele resultaten wisten te bereiken. Tot dit gedeelte behoort een artikal over het omgaan met getallen in de oubbeid en een beschouwing over de geometrische algebra en de oorsprong van de woorden parabool, hyperbool en ellips. De bundel bevat voorts een vertaling van enkele in het Latiin geschreven brieven, nl. een brief van Adalboldus, bisschop van Utrecht, aan Paus Silvester II en (met oorspronkelijke tekst en commentaar) van Johan Hudde (1628-1704), burgemeester van Amsterdam, over het bepalen van maxima en minima en van Hendrik van Heuraet (1634-1660?), waarin voor het eerst de lengte van een kromme wordt berekend. Verder zijn er stukken gewijd aan Leonhard Euler (1707-1783) en aan de nagenoeg onbekende Pierre Louis Wantzel (1814-1848) die als eerste bewees dat een willekeurige hoek niet in drie gelijke delen verdeeld kan worden met behulp van passer en liniaal alleen, een eeuwenoud probleem waarvan de oplosser in de vergetelheid is geraakt. Zijn naam komt zelTs niet voor in de Dictionary of Scientific Biography!
