Ancient Mathematics: China

Ancient Chinese measurements with triangle and compass were already performed in the 20th c BCE. In “The Nine Chapters on the Mathematical Art” (around 200 BCE), Chinese mathematicians performed calculations with fractions, square roots and geometrical progressions. They found areas and volumes using 3 as an approximation for PI, and solved systems... [More]

Ancient Mathematics: India

Ancient Indian mathematicians a proposed positional decimal system that was developed into contemporary decimal numerals. They calculated precise geometrical constructions for sacrificial altars in forms of square, circle, semicircle, isosceles triangle, and isosceles trapezoid, as described in Sulba Sutras (7th-3rd c BCE). Indian mathematicians... [More]

Ancient Greek Mechanics: Technologies, Tricks and Toys

Ancient Greek engineers, such as Archimedes of Syracuse, Philon of Byzantium, Heron of Alexandria, and Pappus of Alexandria, invented and used numerous mechanical, pneumatic and hydraulic devices. Greeks measured distance with hodometers and time with sundials and clepsydras (hydraulic clocks), and made hydraulic alarm clocks. They used complicated... [More]

Introductory Quantum Physics

Quantum physics underpins all of modern science. We could not understand chemistry, biology, nuclear phenomena, computer chips, solar energy, etc. if we could not rely on quantum theory. In this short course, we shall explain the reasons for the birth of quantum physics, and describe some of the basic principles and concepts that form the... [More]
