Episodes from the Early History of Mathematics
Among other things, Aaboe shows us how the Babylonians did calculations, how Euclid proved that there are infinitely many primes, how Ptolemy constructed a trigonometric table in his Almagest, and how Archimedes trisected the angle. Some of the topics may be familiar to the reader, while others will seem surprising or be new.
