Within his foundational treatise “Elements,” Euclid presents the results of earlier mathematicians and includes many of his own theories in a systematic, concise book that utilized a brief set of axioms and meticulous proofs to solidify his by: Euclid’s Elements is by far the most famous mathematical work of classical antiquity, and also has the distinction of being the world’s oldest continuously used mathematical textbook. Little is known about the author, beyond the fact that he lived in Alexandria around BCE. The books on number theory, VII through IX, do not directly depend on Book V since there is a different definition for ratios of numbers. Although Euclid is fairly careful to prove the results on ratios that he uses later, there are some that he didn’t notice he used, for instance, the law of trichotomy for ratios. Guide to Book II The subject matter of Book II is usually called "geometric algebra." The first ten propositions of Book II can be easily interpreted in modern algebraic notation. Of course, in doing so the geometric flavor of the propositions is lost. Nonetheless, restating them algebraically can aid in understanding them.

Definitions I. Definition 1. Those magnitudes are said to be commensurable which are measured by the same measure, and those incommensurable which cannot have any common measure.. Definition 2. Straight lines are commensurable in square when the squares on them are measured by the same area, and incommensurable in square when the squares on them cannot possibly . This dynamically illustrated edition of Euclid's Elements includes 13 books on plane geometry, geometric and abstract algebra, number theory, incommensurables, and solid geometry. Introduction Euclid’s Elements form one of the most beautiful and influential works of science in the history of humankind. Euclid wrote his Elements around BC. He was one of Plato's younger students, but older than Archimedes. The 13 books of his Elements cover angles, line segments, triangles, rectangles, squares, the irrational numbers, parallelagrams, parallelapipeds, spheres, cones, and polygons/5. This version of Euclid’s Elements contains the first six books and portions of the eleventh and twelfth books. It contains all notes, an appendix, and exercises at the back of the book. Thus, the content is perfect for any student of mathematics. The Elements (Ancient Greek: Στοιχεῖα Stoicheia) is a mathematical treatise consisting /5(10).

Within his foundational textbook "Elements," Euclid presents the results of earlier mathematicians and includes many of his own theories in a systematic, concise book that utilized meticulous proofs and a brief set of axioms to solidify his deductions/5(13). EUCLID Euclid is known to almost every high school student as the author of The Elements, the long studied text on geometry and number theory. No other book except the Biblehas been so widely translated and circulated. It is unquestionably the best mathematics text ever written and is likely to remain so into the distant future.

The book was published in multiple languages including English, consists of pages and is available in Paperback format. The main characters of this science, mathematics story are,/5. This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project to make the world’s books discoverable online.
