Mesopotamian Mathematics 2100-1600 B.C.: Technical Constants in Bureaucracy and Education (Oxford Editions of Cuneiform Texts) - Paperback

ISBN: 0198152469

[SR: 5956248], Paperback, [EAN: 9780198152460], Oxford University Press, U.S.A., Oxford University Press, U.S.A., Book, [PU: Oxford University Press, U.S.A.], 1999-07-29, Oxford University Press, U.S.A., Mathematics was integral to Mesopotamian scribal culture: indeed, writing was invented towards the end of the fourth millennium BC for the express purpose of recording numerical information. By the beginning of the second millennium the earliest known body of 'pure' mathematics was one of the key elements of scribal training, and is thus pivotal to our understanding of the educational practices and intellectual history of ancient Mesopotamia. The main body of this book is a mathematical and philological discussion of the two hundred technical constants, or 'coefficients', found in early second millennium mathematics. Their names and mathematical functions are established, leading to improved interpretations of several large mathematical topics. The origins of many coefficients - and much of the more practical mathematics - are traced to late third millennium accounting and quantity surveying practices. Finally, the coefficients are used to examine some aspects of mathematics education in early Mesopotamia., 271238, Middle East, 271237, Ancient History & Civilisation, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276421, By Region, 276416, Archaeology, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271353, Early British & Roman Britain, 271343, Britain & Ireland, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271489, Pre-500, 271480, Europe, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 772136, History of Science, 271389, Other Historical Subjects, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 771998, Pre-500, 771718, World History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271299, Iraq, 271287, Middle East, 271248, Asia, 771708, Countries & Regions, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922516, History of Mathematics, 922508, History & Philosophy, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922988, Teaching Aids, 922526, Education, 278320, Mathematics, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278362, History of Mathematics, 278320, Mathematics, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 922942, Maths, 922868, Popular Science, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 564352, Mathematics, 570902, Algebra, 570874, Applied Mathematics, 570912, Calculus & Mathematical Analysis, 570934, Combinatorics & Graph Theory, 570936, Geometry, 570964, Mathematical Theory, 564334, Scientific, Technical & Medical, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
