Harriot using Alvarus’ results

February 11, 2013

As a result of “The Harriot online Project” at MPIWG  (Berlin), a selection from Harriot’s manuscripts is today freely accessible through ECHO, combined with transcriptions and short content descriptions. Some of Harriot’s notes, which were never published, show how he used mathematical results on infinite series from Alvarus Thomas. These six pages can be seen here.
