Events & Seminars\, SeminarsLocation: \n\nRoss 70 \n\n\n1) Abstract of Wa
yne's part:\n\nToday\, in our modern world\, we perceive the physical univ
erse in mathematical terms\; whether degrees on longitude and latitude on
earth\, or in units of space-time beyond our earthly horizons. This talk
will present two ancient cuneiform tablets from Babylonia which offer a ge
ometric impression of the physical world as experienced by ancient Babylon
ians. Comparisons will be made with a range of other ancient mathematical
\, geographic\, and astronomical materials from the cuneiform Ancient Near
East. \n\n2) Abstract of Mourtaza's part: \n\nI will present some ref
lections on two mathematical accomplishments that have some affinities wit
h what we now call integration methods. In the first part\, I'll describe
the content of some cuneiform tablets\, which were studied and published b
y Mathieu Ossendrijver\, in which the medial point of the trajectory of
a planet was computed. Then I'll present the general structure of reasonin
g used by Archimedes in his determination of the section of a parabola. I'
ll finish by discussing these examples and their relation to integration.
