In the 12th century European learning was greatly transformed by translations from Arabic into Latin. Such translations in the field of mathematics and their influence are here described and analysed, notably al-Khwarizmi's "Arithmetic" - through which Europe became acquainted with the Hindu-Arabic numerals - and Euclid's "Elements".

Menso Folkerts is Professor of the History of Science at the University of Munich, Germany, and the author of a second collection in the Variorum series: Essays on Early Medieval Mathematics.

Entitled Essays on Early Medieval Mathematics, it collected several of Folkerts' papers on that topic. This volume is clearly a continuation of the other, focusing this time on "The Arabs, Euclid, and Regiomontanus" (and therefore on a slightly later part of the Medieval period). For now, anyone interested in the subject should make sure their library gets a copy of this one.

The first title in the Variorum Collected Studies series was published in 1970

About this title: Synopsis: The Development of Mathematics in Medieval Europe complements the previous collection of articles by Menso Folkerts, Essays on Early Medieval Mathematics, and deals with the development of mathematics in Europe from the 12th century to about 1500. Five articles are dedicated to Johannes Regiomontanus, perhaps the most original mathematician of the 15th century, and to his discoveries in trigonometry, algebra and other fields.

The Development of Mathematics in Medieval Europe complements the previous collection of articles by Menso Folkerts, Essays on Early Medieval Mathematics, and deals with the development of mathematics in Europe from the 12th century to about 1500. In the 12th century European learning was greatly transformed by translations from Arabic into Latin. Such translations in the field of mathematics and their influence are here described and analysed, notably al-Khwarizmi's "Arithmetic" -- through which Europe became acquainted with the Hindu-Arabic numerals -- and Euclid's "Elements". Five articles are dedicated to Johannes Regiomontanus, perhaps the most original mathematician of the 15th century, and to his discoveries in trigonometry, algebra and other fields. The knowledge and application of Euclid's "Elements" in 13th- and 15th-century Italy are discussed in three studies, while the last article treats the development of algebra in South Germany around 1500, where much of the modern symbolism used in algebra was developed.
