Fibonacci's Liber Abaci: A Translation into Modern English of Leonardo Pisano's Book of. Calculation, by L.E. Sigler [Springer ]. BACKGROUND. “The nine. Fibonacci's Liber Abaci. A translation His Liber Abaci was first published in . a pdf file via the link soundofheaven.info The “Liber Abaci”, a AD Latin text, primarily scaled vulgar fractions n/p to unit fraction by seven distinctions in a subtraction context. The Hindu-Arabic numeral notation began in AD scaled rational numbers n/p by LCM m per: (n/p - 1/m) = (mn -p)/mp, replaced Greek.
It starts off with an extensive and detailed discussion of the use of "the nine Indian figures" to represent numbers and to perform arithmetical operations with them. Euclid's Elements, X, Lemma to Theorem Proposition VIII. Proposition XV. Books by Language. Leonardo gives a proof very similar to that of Proposition IX. I, pp.
To give some idea of the contents of this remarkable work, there follows a list of the most important results it contains.
The numbering of the propositions is not found in the original. Proposition I. Every square number 6 can be formed as a sum of successive odd numbers beginning with unity. To find two square numbers whose sum is a square number.
Scritti, II, p. I, pp. This enables us to obtain rational right triangles in which the hypotenuse exceeds one of the legs by 2.
It is attributed by Proclus to Plato 2. Leonardo also gives the rule in case the hypotenuse is to exceed one leg by 3, and indicates what the result would be if the hypotenuse exceeds one leg by any number whatever.
Proposition IV. It follows from this that when the sum of two consecutive numbers is a square number, then the square of the greater will equal the sum of two squares.
Proposition V. Proposition VI. This very important theorem should be called Leonardo's Theorem, for it i s 1 The use of quotation marks indicates a literal translation of Leonardo's words; in other cases the exposition follows his thought without adhering closely to his form of expression. Friedlein, Leipzig, , p. This gives him still another way of finding rational right triangles.
Proposition VIII. Proposition IX.
Proposition X. Leonardo gives a proof very similar to that of Proposition IX. Proposition XL Theorem. Heath, op. Euclid's Elements, X, Lemma to Theorem Proposition XII.
A number of this form is called by Leonardo a congruum, and he proceeds to show that it furnishes the solution to a problem proposed by Johannes of Palermo. The University of Utah.
