Arithmetica universalis ; sive, De compositione et resolutione arithmetica liber. : Cui accessit Halleiana Aequationum radices arithmetice inveniendi methodus : In usum juventutis academicae by Isaac Newton( Book )

1 edition published in 1707 in Latin and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is one of thousand copies published of Newton's lectures delivered while Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University between 1669 and 1702, edited and published by William Whiston. Despite regarded by the author as contain numerous mistakes, it proved to be one of his more popular books and was translated into English in 1720. Discussed in W.W. Rouse Ball's A short account of the history of Mathematics, the work is on algebra, theory of equations and miscellaneous problems which is the substance of Newton’s lectures during the years 1673 to 1683. Newton explains that the equation whose roots are the solution of a given problem will have as many roots as there are different possible cases, and he considers how it happens that the equation to which a problem leads may contain roots which do not satisfy the original question. He extends Descartes’ rule of signs to give limits to the number of imaginary roots. He uses the principle of continuity to explain how two real and unequal roots may become imaginary in passing through equality and illustrates this by geometrical considerations, hence the imaginary roots must occur in pairs

"Who thought of Europe as a community before its economic integration in 1957? Dina Gusejnova illustrates how a supranational European mentality was forged from depleted imperial identities. In the revolutions of 1917 to 1920, the power of the Hohenzollern, Habsburg and Romanoff dynasties over their subjects expired. Even though Germany lost its credit as a world power twice in that century, in the global cultural memory, the old Germanic families remained associated with the idea of Europe in areas reaching from Mexico to the Baltic region and India. Gusejnova's book sheds light on a group of German-speaking intellectuals of aristocratic origin who became pioneers of Europe's future regeneration. In the minds of transnational elites, the continent's future horizons retained the contours of phantom empires"--
