Unique Algebraic Remainders on the Sibṭ’s Commentary on the Yāsamīnīyya
This work is an elaboration of the commentary written by the Egyptian mathematician Sibṭ alMāridīnī—i.e., a commentary on another commentary—on the urjūzah (versified introduction) to the science of algebra, originally composed by the Berber mathematician and man of letters Abū Muḥammad ‘AbdAllāh alIshbīlī alMarrakushī, also known as Ibn alYāsamīn, who died in 1204 (600 AH). AlYāsamīn summarized his mathematical knowledge in a versified treatise known as the Yāsamīnīyya (The treatise by alYāsamīn). Around the end of the 15th century, alYāsamīn’s verses were the object of a ...


Glosses of alHifnī on the Yāsamīnīyya

Medieval treatises were extensively read and made the subject of commentaries. In many cases, these commentaries became the object of other works—or supercommentaries—aimed at further clarifying the subject of the original treatises. This manuscript is an example of this phenomenon. In the 12th century, the North African mathematician ‘Abdallāh ibn Hajjāj ibn alYāsamīn summarized his mathematical knowledge in a versified treatise known as Yāsamīnīyya (The treatise ...
