Extractions: Pierre de Carcavi received no university education. He was a counsellor to the parliament of Toulouse from 1632 until 1636. In fact he first met Fermat in 1632 when they were both members of the Parliament in Toulouse and they remained friends. In 1636 Carcavi bought an office of counsellor in the Grand Conseil in Paris. In 1648, however, hard times struck and he was forced to sell the office to pay for the debts of his father (who had been a banker). After this he worked for the Duke of Liancourt until 1663. In that year he was appointed Custodian of the Royal Library, a post he held for 20 years until shortly before his death. Carcavi is best known for his correspondence with other mathematicians rather than for his own mathematics. He was friends with Huygens Fermat (as mentioned above) and Pascal and corresponded with them. Fermat sent many of his works to Carcavi after he moved to Paris in 1636. In 1650

Extractions: Pierre Fermat 's father was a wealthy leather merchant and second consul of Beaumont- de- Lomagne. Pierre had a brother and two sisters and was almost certainly brought up in the town of his birth. Although there is little evidence concerning his school education it must have been at the local Franciscan monastery. He attended the University of Toulouse before moving to Bordeaux in the second half of the 1620s. In Bordeaux he began his first serious mathematical researches and in 1629 he gave a copy of his restoration of Apollonius 's Plane loci to one of the mathematicians there. Certainly in Bordeaux he was in contact with Beaugrand Pierre de Fermat. For the remainder of his life he lived in Toulouse but as well as working there he also worked in his home town of Beaumont-de-Lomagne and a nearby town of Castres. From his appointment on 14 May 1631 Fermat worked in the lower chamber of the parliament but on 16 January 1638 he was appointed to a higher chamber, then in 1652 he was promoted to the highest level at the criminal court. Still further promotions seem to indicate a fairly meteoric rise through the profession but promotion was done mostly on seniority and the plague struck the region in the early 1650s meaning that many of the older men died. Fermat himself was struck down by the plague and in 1653 his death was wrongly reported, then corrected:-

He obtained the degree of Bachelor of Civil Laws from the University of Orleans in 1631. I accept this as the equivalent of a B.A., and in accordance with my practice I list also the degree in law. 5. Religion

Extractions: Al'Biruni's contributions to science are of major importance. He believed that the Earth rotated on its axis and made accurate calculations of latitude and longitude. In 1000 he wrote on calendars and in 1030 he wrote al Qanun al-Mas'udi which contains a collection of 23 observations of equinoxes beginning with observations by Hipparchus and Ptolemy and ending with two observations which he made himself. He also wrote a treatise on timekeeping, wrote on the astrolabe and a mechanical calendar. He makes interesting observations on the velocity of light, stating that its velocity is immense compared with that of sound. Comments: By pure luck, I found another mathemetician who contributed to the body of work that existed before the Age of Exploration that proved that the world was not flat. I still don't believe that teachers actually taught (or at least implied) that Colombus proved that the world was round. That much was already known. The only pieces missing were reliable maps of where land masses were. By-the-way, Where did Columbus get his data on the circumference of the world? Others had already calculated a much more accurate number. Nina Bari , submitted by Misty D. Waller

Extractions: Pierre de Fermat Piere de Fermat was a son of a wealthy French leather merchant. He was born in Lomangne in 1601 and he had one brother and two sisters. His education was never really known. It is assumed he either went to a local monastery or was home schooled. It is known that he attended the University of Toulouse and later moved to Bordeaux. Bordeaux was the first place where Fermat practices mathematics but he went on to study law at the university of Orleans. In 1631 Pierre Fermat received a degree in civil law and also became a government official. Because of his new title he was entitled to change his name to Pierre de Fermat. Pierre spent the remainder of his life in Toulouse, his career in law would continue to grow and by 1652 at the age of 51, he was promoted to the highest level of the criminal court. None the less, Fermat never gave up on his interest in mathematics and had a few friends that he met through his hobby like Beaugrand and Carcavi. Fermat was an amateur mathematician; he never wrote any books or published any of his discoveries. He was more interested in sharing his information with others and learning instead of teaching. One of his most remembered pieces of work was written in the margin of the book Arithmetica written by Diophantus. The theory became known as Fermats last theorem. The theorem states

Extractions: 6. Scientific Disciplines: Magnetism; Natural Philosophy; Elc; Subordinate Disciplines: Mechanics. Cabeo is remembered partly because he was acquainted with Giovanni Battista Baliani, who experimented with falling weights, and wrote about Baliani's experiments. His interpretation that two different weights fall in the same length of time without regard to the medium became the indirect cause of other experiments conducted by Vincenzo Renieri. He experimented with pendulums. He published two major works, Philosophia magnetica (1629) and In quatuor libros meteorologicorum Aristotelis commentaria (1646), an anti-aristotelian work.
