Where, however, Pappus grouped all remaining curves into a class he termed linear, Descartes divides these into distinct classes of order.

Inhe moved to Stockholm to be a philosophy tutor to Queen Christina of Sweden. Some features of WorldCat will not be available.

Clearly, then, it must be at Descarrtesand consideration of similar triangles shows descares the angle of incidence ABH is equal to the angle of reflection HBF. Because of his general fame and philosophic study of the existence of God, some devout Catholics, thinking he would be canonized a saint, collected relics from his body as it was being transported to France for burial.

The physics is discussed in two subsections: Please select Ok if you would like to proceed with this request anyway.

La Dioptrique (Descartes) — Wikipédia

As Descartes emphasized, these operations do not make arithmetic of geometry, but rather make possible an algebra of geometrical line segments. Descartes apparently received the stimulus to study these works from Isaac Beeckman ; his earliest recorded thoughts on mathematics are found in the correspondence with Beeckman that followed their meeting in Preview this item Preview this item.

Since the ball takes longer to reach the circle, the length of that component after collision will be greater than before, to wit, in the ratio of p: You already recently rated this item. Since as much action was required diooptrica motion as for rest, a smaller body moving however fast could never possess sufficient action to move a larger body at rest.

Plane problems are those that can be constructed with circle and straightedge, and solid problems those that require the aid of the three conic sections.

Imagine, then, says Descartes, a tennis ball leaving the racket at point A and traveling uniformly along line AB to meet the surface CE at B. II, —, but again in a way that belies its novelty.

Finding libraries that hold this item One important by-product of this structural analysis of equations is a new and more refined concept of number. To find the precise point at which it meets the circle, Descartes again considered its determination, or rather the horizontal component unaffected by the collision. The name field is required. For the law of refraction, Descartes altered the nature of the surface met by the ball; he now imagined it to pass through the surface, but to lose some of its motion i.

For the model of the tennis ball, this means that, if the medium below the surface is denser than that above, the ball receives added speed at impact, as if it were struck again by the racket. Your Web browser is not enabled for JavaScript.

Returning to the model of the tennis ball, Descartes explained color in terms of a rotatory motion of the ball, the speed of rotation varying with the color. To apply algebraic analysis, he then takes the diiptrica ABmeasured from the fixed point Aas his first unknown, xand length BC as the second unknown, y.
