Ancient Mathematics: Islamic Science

Islamic mathematics developed under strong influence of the ancient Greek mathematics. During the Abbasid Caliphate, Euclid’s Elements and Ptolemy’s Almagest were translated into Syriac then to Arabic, followed by the works by Diophantus, Heron of Alexandria, Archimedes of Syracuse, and Apollonius.

Past Climate Changes and the Lessons They Teach

Our climate is changing, with human influences the main, but not the only driver. We also know that climate has changed in the past, before any significant human involvement. The best example is the Ice Age cycle, which has dominated our planet for the past 2 million years. Can we explain this phenomenon, including the important fact that changes... [More]

European Mathematics During the Middle Ages: From Boethius to Fibonacci

The fall of the Western Roman Empire in the late 4th century was followed by abandonment of the Greek sciences and overall decline in mathematical knowledge. Revival of mathematics in Europe began with the translation of Arabic mathematical treatises, including those translated from Greek. The decimal positional numerals spread around Europe since...

Natural Climate Variability and Australia’s Summer from Hell

Australians have known for decades that our “droughts and flooding rains” are largely driven by the vaguely cyclic variations in the Pacific Ocean known as El Nino/La Nina (and the Southern Oscillation). In the past 20 years or so, science has realized that this is not the only “mode of variability” which affects our weather. In particular, changes... [More]

European Mathematics During the Renaissance

During the Renaissance, the rediscovery of philosophy, art and culture of the Ancient Greeks, together with introduction of Arabic art and science, and the desire of artists to represent the natural world realistically led them to study mathematics. Luca Pacioli and Leonardo da Vinci worked on the theory of perspective, golden ratio and algebra.... [More]
