Item description for Recherche et Enseignment des Mathematiques au IXe Siecle: Le Recueil de Propositions Geometriques de Na'im ibn Musa (Les Cahiers du MIDEO) by C. Houzel, R. Houzel & Roshdi Rashed...
What is the relation between research and teaching at the time of the mathematical renaissance in ninth-century Baghdad? The book by Na'im ibn Musa, translated here, is an exceptional document that allows us to ask this question and provides a first answer. Heir to three eminent mathematicians-the Banu Musa-and pupil of celebrated mathematician Thabit ibn Qurra (826-901), the author reflects his teaching and bears witness to the mathematical culture of an era. Includes introduction and commentary.
