A Remarkable Collection of Babylonian Mathematical Texts - Manuscripts in the Schøyen Collection: Cuneiform Texts I


 

The book analyzes the mathematical tablets from the private collection of Martin Schoyen. It includes analyses of tablets which have never been studied before. This provides new insight into Babylonian understanding of sophisticated mathematical objects. The book is carefully written and organized. The tablets are classified according to mathematical content and purpose, while drawings and pictures are provided for the most interesting tablets.
