AlexandriaHellenistic Egypt. Although many of the results in Elements originated with earlier mathematicians, one of Euclid’s accomplishments was to present them in a single, logically coherent framework, making it easy to use and easy to reference, including a system of rigorous mathematical proofs that remains the basis of mathematics 23 centuries later. The Elements of Euclid not only was the earliest major Greek mathematical work to come down to us, but also the most influential textbook of all times.

Much of the material is not original to him, although many of the proofs are his. Mathematicians and philosophers, such as Thomas HobbesBaruch SpinozaAlfred North Whiteheadand Bertrand Russellhave attempted to create their own foundational “Elements” for their respective disciplines, by adopting the axiomatized deductive structures that Euclid’s work introduced.

In ancient times it was not uncommon to attribute to a celebrated author works that were not by him; thus, some versions of Euclid’s Elements include a fourteenth and elementl a fifteenth book, both shown by later scholars to be apocryphal.

A detailed biography of Euclid is given by Flementi authors, mentioning, for example, a birth town of Tyre. It has proven instrumental in the development of logic and modern scienceand its logical rigor was not surpassed until the 19th century.

The first printed edition appeared in based on Campanus of Novara ‘s edition[13] and since then it has been translated into many languages and published in about a thousand different editions. In historical context, it has proven enormously influential in many areas of science.

These additions, which often distinguished themselves from the main text depending on the manuscriptgradually accumulated over time as opinions varied upon what was worthy of explanation or further study.

This biography is generally believed to be fictitious. Later editors have interpolated Euclid’s implicit axiomatic assumptions in the list of formal axioms. Euclid Elements Book 3 Proposition 35 a. As was common in ancient mathematical texts, when a proposition needed proof in several different cases, Euclid often proved only one of them often the most difficultleaving the others to the reader.

Wilson, Scribes and Scholars 2nd. Elements is the oldest extant large-scale deductive treatment of epementi. If superposition is to be considered a valid method of geometric proof, all of geometry would be full of eukld proofs.

Scholars believe that the Elements is largely a compilation of propositions based on books by earlier Greek mathematicians. A History of Western Philosophy.

Later editors such as Theon often interpolated their own proofs of these cases. Wikisource has original works written by or about: Then, the ‘proof’ itself follows. However, this hypothesis is not well accepted by scholars and there is little evidence in its favor.
