The Beauty of Mathematics
"To those who do not know mathematics it is difficult to get across a real feeling as to the beauty, the deepest beauty, of nature ... If you want to learn about nature, to appreciate nature, it is necessary to understand the language that she speaks in" Richard Feynman Under construction

Ancient Science and Its Modern Fates
Until recently, historians of the Scientific Revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries treated it as a kind of rebellion against the authority of ancient books and humanist scholarship. In fact, however, it began with the revival of several tremendously important and formidably difficult works of Greek science. Scholarship supported science in this world where faith and science were not yet seen as two, irreconcilable cultures. The three ancient doors to the next rooms all have signs written on them in Greek and Latin. Luckily for you we created modern metal plates with the translations, next to the doors.

Problems Pi (noun) ... plural = pis. Mathematics. A transcendental number, approximately 3.14159, represented by the symbol , that expresses the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle and appears as a constant in many mathematical expressions. The 16th letter of the Greek alphabet. : BEYOND INFINITY Deep in the nature of man is the will to go further than any human has ever been before. This quest is symbolized by the Greek letter , which evokes infinity. Humans are still in pursuit of the end of its innumerable string of decimals... No number (3.14...) has captured the attention and imagination of number fanatics and nerds throughout the ages as much as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter - a.k.a. Pi. With incisive historical insight and a refreshing sense of humor, this page brings us the story of Pi and humankind's fascination with it, from Archimedes to da Vinci to the modern day Chudnovsky brothers, who holed up in their Manhattan apartment with a homemade supercomputer churning out digits of pi into the billions.

  • This book is a very important milestone in defence of the Holy Scriptures. It has been written because the Theory of Evolution has totally saturated the thinking of everybody and in their minds the Scriptures are of little consequence. 'A Proof set in Stone' establishes by invincible evidence the authority of the Bible, and that Jesus of Nazareth is the promised Messiah

mathematics written in ancient greek was translated into Arabic. About the same time some mathematics of India was translated into Arabic.
Every culture on earth has developed some mathematics. In some cases, this mathematics has spread from one culture to another. Now there is one predominant international mathematics, and this mathematics has quite a history. It has roots in ancient Egypt and Babylonia, then grew rapidly in ancient Greece. Mathematics written in ancient Greek was translated into Arabic. About the same time some mathematics of India was translated into Arabic. Later some of this mathematics was translated into Latin and became the mathematics of Western Europe. Over a period of several hundred years, it became the mathematics of the world. There are other places in the world that developed significant mathematics, such as China, southern India, and Japan, and they are interesting to study, but the mathematics of the other regions have not had much influence on current international mathematics. There is, of course, much mathematics being done these and other regions, but it is not the traditional math of the regions, but international mathematics. By far, the most significant development in mathematics was giving it firm logical foundations. This took place in ancient Greece in the centuries preceding Euclid. See

By Paul Rincon
BBC Science
The astronomers, physicists and mathematicians of ancient Greece were true innovators.
Ancient Greeks used letters and extra symbols to represent digits But one thing it seems the ancient Greeks did not invent was the counting system on which many of their greatest thinkers based their pioneering calculations. New research suggests the Greeks borrowed their system known as alphabetic numerals from the Egyptians, and did not develop it themselves as was long believed. Greek alphabetic numerals were favoured by the mathematician and physicist Archimedes, the scientific philosopher Aristotle and the mathematician Euclid, amongst others. Trade explosion An analysis by Dr Stephen Chrisomalis of McGill University in Montreal, Canada, showed striking similarities between Greek alphabetic numerals and Egyptian demotic numerals, used in Egypt from the late 8th Century BC until around AD 450. Both systems use nine signs in each "base" so that individual units are counted 1-9, tens are counted 10-90 and so on. Both systems also lack a symbol for zero.
