Cambridge Digital Library had made Newton’s exceptionally great works online.
Some times ago they added the Trinity College Notebook by Isaac Newton, which he used to teach in the college in 17th century.

  1. Thanks so much for linking to this. It’s like going back in time to listen to Newton himself. When I was 13 years old, my father had a sabbatical in Cambridge for 6 months, and I remember walking over a wooden bridge designed by Newton that did not use use any bolts to hold it together. Years later they took it apart to replace some rotted pieces, and they couldn’t put it back together they way he had constructed it. What a genius.

    1. Thanks for your reply @fractad. It is really good to read and write about genius like Newton. Thanks for you info about the bridge designed by Newton. That must be fantastic experience. I didn’t know it.

Understanding Poincaré Conjecture

Introduction & Statement of Poincaré Conjecture In 1904, the french Mathematician Henri Poincaré posed an epoch-making question in one of his papers, which asked: If a three-dimensional shape is simply connected, is it homeomorphic to the three-dimensional sphere? Explanation The statement can be explained by considering the analogous two-dimensional situation. Let us think of a rubber band stretched around the…

Interesting Egyptian Fraction Problem

Here is an interesting mathematical puzzle alike problem involving the use of Egyptian fractions, whose solution sufficiently uses the basic algebra. Problem Let a, b, c, d and e be five non-zero complex numbers, and; $ a + b + c + d + e = -1$ … (i) $ a^2+b^2+c^2+d^2+e^2=15$ …(ii) $ \dfrac{1}{a} + \dfrac{1}{b} +\dfrac{1}{c} +\dfrac{1}{d} +\dfrac{1}{e}= -1$…

Dedekind’s Theory of Real Numbers

Intro Let $ \mathbf{Q}$ be the set of rational numbers. It is well known that $ \mathbf{Q}$ is an ordered field and also the set $ \mathbf{Q}$ is equipped with a relation called “less than” which is an order relation. Between two rational numbers there exists an infinite number of elements of $ \mathbf{Q}$. Thus, the system of rational numbers seems…

Fermat Numbers

Fermat Number, a class of numbers, is an integer of the form $ F_n=2^{2^n} +1 \ \ n \ge 0$ . For example: Putting $ n := 0,1,2 \ldots$ in $ F_n=2^{2^n}$ we get $ F_0=3$ , $ F_1=5$ , $ F_2=17$ , $ F_3=257$ etc. Fermat observed that all the integers $ F_0, F_1, F_2, F_3, \ldots$ were prime…
