Resumo:
Many people have heard of two things about Archimedes: he was the greatest mathematician of antiquity and he ran from his bath crying, "Eureka, eureka!" few of us, layperson or mathematician are familiar with the accomplishments on which his reputation rests. This book answers the questions by describing in detail his astonishing accomplishments: how he developed the theory of the lever and the center of gravity;  Ler mais...

Resumo:

Many people have heard of two things about Archimedes: he was the greatest mathematician of antiquity and he ran from his bath crying, "Eureka, eureka!" few of us, layperson or mathematician are familiar with the accomplishments on which his reputation rests. This book answers the questions by describing in detail his astonishing accomplishments: how he developed the theory of the lever and the center of gravity; how he used the center of gravity to study whether a floating object would tip over; how he summed a geometric series and the squares; and how he found the volume and surface area of a sphere. His ability to do so much with the few tools at his disposal is astonishing. - Publisher.
