    Fibonacci’s Liber Abaci

    Ford Awards Merten M. It develops the tools rigorously, establishing them with Euclidean geometric proofs, and then shows how to apply them to all kinds of situations in business and trade - conversion of measures and currency, allocations of profit, computation of interest, alloying of currencies, and so forth.

    It is rigorous mathematics, well applied, and vividly described.

    From the reviews But here it is at last, the Liber Abaci in English. It is now possible for mathematicians who are interested in history to read it, and for students to read portions of it in their history courses Don't miss the opportunity to get a copy.

    Fernando Q. No other book did more to establish the basic framework of arithmetic and algebra as they developed in the Western world Even the Latin original has been hard to find outside the rare book room But now this cornerstone of mathematical culture has finally become widely available with the appearance of Fibonacci's 'Liber Abaci': A Translation into Modern English of Leonardo Pisano's Book of Calculation.

    Leonardo learned his mathematics from the Islamic mathematical tradition some have even argued that he should be considered part of that tradition , but he wrote his books in Latin. As a result, he became one of the most important mediators of that tradition to European readers. The Liber Abaci focused on "calculation.

    It starts off with an extensive and detailed discussion of the use of "the nine Indian figures" to represent numbers and to perform arithmetical operations with them. The "nine figures" are, of course, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9, with 0 being treated as a separate sign.
