Rene Descartes little book here solves the past, and heralds the future. Descartes uses lines to find intersections of these special curves. These intersections are roots of equations. Descartes basically generalizes the old Greek geometric algebra of finding roots to higher curves.

He finds correspondences to properties of the theory of /5(10). The book progresses through a series of example solutions to different problems in geometry so you can grab a pen and paper and work along with Descartes. This is a dual English/French edition with alternating pages/5(9).

Although analytic geometry was far and away Descartes’ most important contribution to mathematics, he also: developed a “rule of signs” technique for determining the number of positive or negative real roots of a polynomial; “invented” (or at least popularized) the superscript notation for showing powers or exponents (e.g.

His analytical geometry was a tremendous conceptual breakthrough, linking the previously separate fields of geometry and algebra.

Descartes basically generalizes the old Greek geometric algebra of finding roots to higher curves. He finds correspondences to properties of the theory of /5(5). With this volume Descartes founded modern analytical geometry.

Reducing geometry to algebra and analysis and, conversely, showing that analysis may be translated into geometry, it opened the way for modern mathematics. Descartes was the first to classify curves systematically and to demonstrate algebraic solution of geometric : Dover Publications.
