Robert of Chester's redaction of Euclid's Elements, the socalled Adelard II version by
H. L. L Busard(
Book
)
9 editions published in 1992 in 3 languages and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Latin "Version II", till now attributed to Adelard of Bath, is edited here for the first time. It was the most influential Euclid text in the Latin West in the 12th and 13th centuries. As the large number of manuscripts and the numerous quotations in other scientific and philosophical texts show, it was far better known than the three Euclid translations made from the Arabic in the 12th century (Adelard of Bath, version I; Hermann of Carinthia; Gerard of Cremona). Version II became the basis of later reworkings, in which the enunciations were taken over, but new proofs supplied; the most important text of this kind is the redaction made by Campanus in the late 1250s, which became the standard Latin "Euclid" in the later Middle Ages. The introduction deals with the questions of when and by whom version II was written. Since Marshall Clagett's fundamental article (1953) it has been generally accepted that version II is one of three Euclid texts attributable to Adelard of Bath. But a comparison of the text of version II with those of versions I and III yields little or no reason to assume that Adelard was the author of version II. Version II must have been written later than version I and before version III; its author was acquainted with Euclid texts of the Boethius tradition and with two of those transmitted from Arabic, version I (almost certainly by Adelard) and the version by Hermann of Carinthia

3 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Die Autoren beschreiben die Entstehung, Entwicklung und Wandlung der Algebra als Teil unserer Kulturgeschichte. Ursprünge, Anstöße und die Entwicklung algebraischer Begriffe und Methoden werden in enger Verflechtung mit historischen Ereignissen und menschlichen Schicksalen dargestellt. Ein erster Spannungsbogen reicht von den Frühformen des Rechnens mit natürlichen Zahlen und Brüchen zur Lösung einfacher Gleichungen bis hin zur Lösung von Gleichungen dritten und vierten Grades in der Renaissance. Von den misslungenen Versuchen zur Lösung allgemeiner Gleichungen höheren Grades im 17 Jh. zieht sich ein weiterer Bogen zu den genialen Ideen des jungen Galois und den berühmten Beweisen des Fundamentalsatzes der Algebra durch C.F. Gauß. Die Wandlung der Algebra von der Gleichungslehre zur Theorie algebraischer Strukturen wird danach ebenso beschrieben, wie die völlig neuen Akzente, die die Computeralgebra in neuester Zeit gesetzt hat
