Amazing Traces Of A Babylonian Origin In Greek Mathematics
The books use of metric algebra diagrams in the Babylonian style, where the side lengths and areas of geometric figures are explicitly indicated, instead of wholly abstract lettered diagrams in the Greek style, is essential for an improved understanding of many interesting propositions and constructions in Greek mathematical works. The authors comparisons with Babylonian mathematics also lead to new answers to some important open questions in the history of Greek mathematics.
