CHINESE MATHEMATICS HISTORY EPUB

The simple but efficient ancient Chinese chinese mathematics history system, which dates back to at least the 2nd millennium BCE, used small bamboo rods arranged to represent the numbers 1 to 9, which were then places in columns representing units, tens, hundreds, thousands, etc.

It was therefore a decimal place value system, very similar to the one we use today - indeed it was chinese mathematics history first such number system, adopted by the Chinese over a thousand years before it was adopted in the West - and it made even quite complex calculations very quick and easy.

Includes nine surveying problems involving indirect observations.

### Chinese mathematics

Includes formula for summing an arithmetic sequence. Also an undetermined system of two linear equations in three unknowns, the "hundred fowls problem" Zu Chongzhi Astronomer, mathematician, engineer.

Collected together earlier astronomical writings. Made own astronomical observations.

### Overview of Chinese mathematics

Determined pi chinese mathematics history 7 digits: With father carried out Liu Hui's suggestion for volume of sphere to get accurate formula for volume of a sphere. Liu Zhuo Astronomer Introduced quadratic interpolation second order difference method.

Wrote Xugu suanjing Continuation of Ancient Mathematics of 22 problems. Solved cubic equations by generalization of algorithm for cube root.

### Mathematics in China

Translations of Indian mathematical works. The text should also associate with his astronomical methods of interpolation, which would contain knowledge, similar to our modern mathematics. The earliest record of multiplication and division algorithm using the Hindu-Arabic numeral system was in writing by Al Khwarizmi in the early chinese mathematics history century.

Khwarizmi's chinese mathematics history by step division algorithm was completely identical to Sunzi division algorithm described in Sunzi mathematical classic four centuries earlier.

The route of transmission of Chinese place value decimal arithmetic know how to the west is unclear, how Sunzi's division and multiplication algorithm with rod calculus ended up in Hindu Arabic numeral form in Khwarizmi's work is unclear, as Al Khwarizmi never given any Sanskrit source nor quoted any Sanskrit stanza.

However, the influence of rod calculus on Hindu division is evident, for example in the division example, should beonly rod calculus used blanks for zeros. The other Chinese advances can, to some extent, be grouped together into developments in problem solving through algebra.

There is a great deal of evidence that many algebraic techniques were developed in China, spreading to India and, from there to the Islamic scholars chinese mathematics history the seventh and eighth centuries.

This is not to take credit from Islamic mathematicians, who did a superb job in seeing the utility of these techniques, gathering them together, and adding to them their own unique contributions. The result is that, what we call algebra today is effectively a collaboration of Chinese, Hindu, and Islamic mathematical insights and advances, compiled and given utility by Islamic scholars.

Among the techniques developed by Chinese mathematicians are methods for extracting the roots of chinese mathematics history that were to be rediscovered in Europe up to a millennium later. They also learned to solve systems of linear equations, developed some very basic matrix algebra, chinese mathematics history described geometric problems using equations instead of pictures.

This last advance stands in interesting counterpoint to some of the Western mathematical traditions.

## Ancient Chinese Mathematics |

In Egypt and Mesopotamia, for example, mathematics seems to have sprung from geometry, as early mathematicians attempted to find new ways of solving some problems. In China, by comparison, it appears as though geometry may have arisen from algebra as Chinese mathematicians tried to find ways to illustrate their mathematical discoveries.

What makes this contrast particularly interesting is that both mathematical traditions arrived at fundamentally the same conclusions, giving a chinese mathematics history deal of credence to the final results. It is likely that many Chinese discoveries made chinese mathematics history way to the West in during ancient and early medieval times.
