Hence, a spherical triangle is specified as usual by its corner angles and its sides, but the sides are given not by their length, but by their arc angle. Some parts of this site may not work. Also, some numerical methods are discussed. In BC, Hipparchus from NicaeaAsia Minor gave the first tables of chords, analogous to modern tables of sine valuesand used them to solve problems in trigonometry and spherical trigonometry. Their names and abbreviations are sine sincosine costangent tancotangent cotsecant secand cosecant csc. The Indian use of the sine and its related functions were much easier to apply in calculations, and the sexagesimal system from the Babylonians continued to be used, so apart from these two changes, the early Arabic versions of the Almagest remained faithful to Ptolemy.

Through these contacts Indian Buddhism spread into China and was well established by the 3rd century BCE, probably later carrying with and on Trigonometrical . book some of the calculation techniques of Indian astronomy. He lived in Alexandriathe intellectual centre of the Hellenistic world, but little else is known about him. The Indian use of the sine and its related functions were much easier to apply in calculations, and the sexagesimal system from the Babylonians continued to be used, so apart from these two changes, the early Arabic versions of the Almagest remained faithful to Ptolemy. The reason for using such large numbers for the radius is much the same as in the past, the arithmetic was much easier using a large unit likewhere the small parts in this case minutes of arc could be managed in integral parts rather than fractions. This quotation comes from the preface to the reader in De Triangulis, translated by Barnabas Hughes.

Comparison with Varhamihira's Sines in sexagesimal numbers and Hipparchs' table in lengths of chords suggests a possible transmission of at least some of the Greek works to the Hindus. These tables were accurate enough to be used as the basis for astronomical calculations up to the early 20th century. However, Gerolamo Cardano noted a century later that much of its material on spherical trigonometry was taken from the twelfth-century work of the Andalusi scholar Jabir ibn Aflah. Among many theorems, he produced a demonstration of the tangent formula, shown below.

A Treatise on Plane and Spherical Trigonometry, and on Trigonometrical ... by J. Hymers Download PDF Ebook

Between and a series of religiously inspired military Crusades were waged by the Christians of Europe against the Arab Empire.

See Part 1 section 3 on the Sulbasutras. The degree of difficulties of the problems is from easy and medium to hard. Georg von Peuerbach Peuerbach's work helped to A Treatise on Plane and Spherical Trigonometry the way for the Copernican conception of the world system; he created a new theory of the planets, made better calculations for eclipses and movements of the planets and introduced the use of the sine into his trigonometry.

See Note 4 in Part1. The Indian use of the sine and its related functions were much easier to apply in calculations, and the sexagesimal system from the Babylonians continued to be used, so apart from these two changes, the early Arabic versions of the Almagest remained faithful to Ptolemy.

There is a natural unit of angle measurement based on a revolutiona natural unit of length based on the circumference of a great circle and a natural unit of area based on the area of the sphere. Lyman, Edwin C. Euler, De mensura angulorum solidorum, Acta academiae scientiarum imperialis Petropolitinae 2,p.

In the special case of polygons on the surface of a sphere of radius one, the arc length of any side equals its subtended angle. Ancient works like the Panca-siddhantica now lost that had been transmitted through the version by Vrahamihira [ See Part 1 section 3 ] and Aryabhata's Aryabhatiya CE demonstrated that Indian scholars had their own ways of dealing with astronomical problems and that they had great skill in calculation.

The study of identities was important because by establishing relationships between sums and differences, and fractions and multiples of angles, more efficient astronomical calculations could be conducted and more accurate tables could be established.

Hymers, John (DNB00)

Heath And CompanyThe distinguishing and on Trigonometrical . book of this book are: a concise presentation of the fundamental part of plane trigonometry up to the solution of triangles; the use of five-place logarithms; a chapter on spherical trigonometry; a chapter on applications.

The principal reason was the restoration of Christian control over the Holy Land, but there were also many other political and economic reasons. In the Indian texts, different astronomers took different values for R, and in most cases the value had to be deduced from the context.

Goddard - Allyn and BaconA trigonometry textbook that treats the solution of triangles quite fully and elaborates analytical trigonometry. Knight's Poetical Works of Wordsworth, vii.

The analogous result holds for hyperbolic triangleswith "excess" replaced A Treatise on Plane and Spherical Trigonometry "defect"; these are both special cases of the Gauss-Bonnet theorem. It covers angles, trigonometric functions, inverse functions, trigonometric equations and identities, triangles, spherical trigonometry.

In contrast, tangent and cotangent properties were derived from the measurement of shadows of a gnomon and the problems of telling the time. Inwith the help of six assistants, Rheticus A Treatise on Plane and Spherical Trigonometry and produced the Opus Palatinum de Triangulis Canon of the Science of Triangles which became the first publication of tables of all six trigonometric functions.

Only about twenty of these works now survive, and only about a dozen of these have been published. The next two parts of the Quadripartitum dealt with a systematic and rigorous exposition of Menelaos' theorem.

Ptolemy, an early astronomer, began to go beyond Euclid, using the geometry of the time to construct what we now call tables of values of trigonometric functions. The work contained a systematic discussion on the application of proportional reasoning to solving plane and spherical triangles, and a thorough treatment of the formulae for solving triangles and trigonometric identities.

To solve a geometric problem on the sphere, one dissects the relevant figure into right spherical triangles i.

This was a collection and major improvement on earlier knowledge. The book is especially a didactic material It is a very old subject. Al-Tusi originally wrote in Persian, but later wrote an Arabic version. Abu Muhammad Jabir ibn Aflah Jabir ibn Aflah c - c probably worked in Seville during the first part of the 12th century.

By an ingenious application of Menelaos' Theorem [See History of Trigonometry Part 2 ] using special cases of great circles with two right angles, Abul Wafa showed how the theorem could be applied in spherical triangles.

The sine, versine and cosine had been developed in the context of astronomical problems, whereas the tangent and cotangent were developed from the study of shadows of the gnomon.By an ingenious application of Menelaos' Theorem [See History of Trigonometry Part 2] using special cases of great circles with two right angles, Abul Wafa showed how the theorem could be applied in spherical triangles.
