Archimedes' modern works

Archimedes' modern works

Bernard Beauzamy

220 pages, parution le 10/09/2012


Archimedes died more than 2200 years ago. Most people think that, even if he is considered to be one of the greatest geniuses of all time, everything he did, no matter how c1ever he was, has been long ago incorporated by modern science, and that he be longs to the past.

But this is not true at ail, as we will c1early demonstrate. Two main ideas, namely what we cali "Archimedes Maps" and what he calied himself "the Method", lead to completely new approaches to modern day scientific and social problems, with far more powerful tools than the ones which were later produced by other means.

Archimedes Maps are the key to many of our modern concerns: optimal allocation of resources, monitoring and surveil lance. Lost for more than 2000 years, the "Weighing Method" provides - when correctly understood - exteremely efficient tools in various areas of mathematics and physics: probability theory, optics, systems of polynomial equations, nondestructive testing, and many others.

This book borrows very little from modern mathematics, but tries to indicate what they would be if Archimedes had lived longer

Satan is in charge and Archimedes drives the show!
