Apollonius de Perge, Coniques : texte grec et arabe by
Apollonius(
)
13 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The treatise on conic sections by the Hellenistic mathematician Apollonius from Perga is regarded as a supreme achievement of Greek mathematics and maintained its authority right up to the 18th century. This new edition is the first to consider all Greek and Arabic sources, with the Arabic texts being presented in the first ever critical edition. Both versions of the text are accompanied by a French translation, an extensive mathematical commentary, numerous philological notes and a complete glossary

The development of Arabic mathematics : between arithmetic and algebra by
Roshdi Rashed(
Book
)
27 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"An understanding of the developments in Arabic mathematics between the IXth and the XVth century is vital to a full appreciation of the history of classical mathematics. This book draws together more than ten studies to highlight one of the major developments in Arabic mathematical thinking, provoked by the double fecundation between arithmetic and the algebra of alKhwarizmi, which led to the foundation of diverse chapters of mathematics: polynomial algebra, combinatorial analysis, algebraic geometry, algebraic theory of numbers, Diophantine analysis, and numerical calculus. Thanks to epistemological analysis and the discovery of hitherto unknown material, the author has brought these chapters into the light, proposes another periodization for classical mathematics, and questions current ideology in writing its history." "Since the publication of the French version of these studies and of this book, its main results have been admitted by historians of Arabic mathematics, and integrated into their recent publications. This book is already a vital reference for anyone seeking to understand history of Arabic mathematics, and its contribution to Latin as well as to later mathematics. The English translation will be of particular value to historians and philosophers of mathematics and of science."Jacket

24 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Arab contribution is fundamental to the history of science, mathematics and technology, but until now no single publication has offered an uptodate synthesis of knowledge in this area. In three fullyillustrated volumes the Encyclopedia of the History of Arab Science documents the history and philosophy of Arab science from the earliest times to the present day. Thirtyone chapters, written by an international team of specialists, cover astronomy, mathematics, music, engineering, nautical science, scientific institutions and many other areas. The Encyclopedia is divided into three volumes: 1. AstronomyTheoretical and applied 2. Mathematics and the Physical Sciences 3. Technology, Alchemy, and the Life Sciences. Extensively illustrated with figures, tables, and plates, each chapter is written by an internationally respected expert, guaranteeing accuracy and quality. Each volume contains an extensive bibliography of sources and suggestions for further reading, and the set is fully indexed. This set will interest mathematicians, engineers and scientists, as well as students of history, the history of science, and Middle Eastern studies."Publisher's information

Pendant sept siècles, du VIIIe au XVe siècle, la science fut essentiellement arabe. Prenant en compte les découvertes faites durant l'Antiquité, la civilisation araboislamique transmit à l'Occident cet apport mais aussi ces propres expériences. Ce volume montre en particulier l'abondance d'observations faites en astronomie, un domaine cher aux hommes du Moyen Age

A history of Arabic sciences and mathematics by
Rushdi Rashid(
Book
)
16 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this unique insight into the history and philosophy of mathematics and science in the mediaeval Arab world, the eminent scholar Roshdi Rashed illuminates the various historical, textual and epistemic threads that underpinned the history of Arabic mathematical and scientific knowledge up to the seventeenth century. The first of five wideranging and comprehensive volumes, this book provides a detailed exploration of Arabic mathematics and sciences in the ninth and tenth centuries. Extensive and detailed analyses and annotations support a number of key Arabic texts, which are translated here into English for the first time. In this volume Rashed focuses on the traditions of celebrated polymaths from the ninth and tenth centuries 'School of Baghdad'  such as the Ban Ms, Thbit ibn Qurra, Ibrhm ibn Sinn, Ab Jaþfar alKhzin, Ab Sahl Wayjan ibn Rustm alQh  and eleventhcentury Andalusian mathematicians like Ab alQsim ibn alSamh, and alMu'taman ibn Hd. The ArchimedeanApollonian traditions of these polymaths are thematically explored to illustrate the historical and epistemological development of 'infinitesimal mathematics' as it became more clearly articulated in the eleventhcentury influential legacy of alHasan ibn alHaytham (Alhazen). Contributing to a more informed and balanced understanding of the internal currents of the history of mathematics and the exact sciences in Islam, and of its adaptive interpretation and assimilation in the European context, this fundamental text will appeal to historians of ideas, epistemologists, mathematicians at the most advanced levels of research"

Classical mathematics from AlKhwārizmī to Descartes by
Roshdi Rashed(
Book
)
11 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book follows the development of classical mathematics and the relation between work done in the Arab and Islamic worlds and that undertaken by the likes of Descartes and Fermat. 'Early modern,' mathematics is a term widely used to refer to the mathematics which developed in the West during the sixteenth and seventeenth century. For many historians and philosophers this is the watershed which marks a radical departure from 'classical mathematics,' to more modern mathematics; heralding the arrival of algebra, geometrical algebra, and the mathematics of the continuous. In this book, Roshdi Rashed demonstrates that 'early modern,' mathematics is actually far more composite than previously assumed, with each branch having different traceable origins which span the millennium. Going back to the beginning of these parts, the aim of this book is to identify the concepts and practices of key figures in their development, thereby presenting a fuller reality of these mathematics. This book will be of interest to students and scholars specialising in Islamic science and mathematics, as well as to those with an interest in the more general history of science and mathematics and the transmission of ideas and culture"
