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
This work is an elaboration of the commentary written by the Egyptian mathematician Sibṭ alMāridīnī (i.e., a commentary on another commentary), on the versified introduction, or urjūzah, 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 (died 1204 [600 AH]). Ibn alYāsamīn’s work has not been examined in detail by scholars, so the apparent inclusion in this treatise of original lines by Ibn Yasamīn is of great importance in studying his contribution ...


Glosses of alHifnī on the Yāsamīnīyya
The mathematical tradition that developed in North Africa during the Middle Ages continued to attract the interest of scholars in subsequent centuries. 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 ...


The Shimmer of AlMāridinī in the Explanation of the Treatise by alYāsamīn
The present manuscript preserves a very elegant copy of a work by one of the most prolific authors of the second half of the 15th century in the field of mathematics and related subjects: Badr alDīn Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad ibn alĠazal, best known as Sibṭ alMāridīnī ("the son of alMāridīnī’s daughter") from the name of his famous maternal ancestor, who was also a mathematician. The Lum‘a alMāridīnīyya is an extensive prose commentary on a famous poem on algebra composed by the Maghrebi mathematician alYāsamīn around the last ...


The Shimmer of AlMāridinī in the Explanation of the Treatise by alYāsamīn
The mathematical tradition that flourished in North Africa and Andalusia during the Middle Ages did not undergo the same decline that many scholars claim occurred in the sciences after the first half of the 13th century. The present work supports this point. The manuscript is a very elegant copy of a mathematical text by Badr alDīn Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad ibn alĠazal, best known as Sibṭ alMāridīnī ("the son of alMāridīnī’s daughter") from the name of his famous maternal grandfather, who was himself a mathematician. Sibṭ alMāridīnī's mathematical ...


The Shimmer of AlMāridinī in the Explanation of the Treatise by alYāsamīn
The 12thcentury mathematical poem known as alYāsamīnīyya fī ‘ilm alJabr (The poem by alYāsamīn on calculus) from the name of its author, alYāsamīn, is one of the most read and commented upon mathematical texts of its time. Its verses have been extensively copied, both in autonomous form and by incorporation into larger commentaries up to the 20th century. The present manuscript preserves an early 20thcentury copy of the 15thcentury commentary on the Yāsamīnīyya written by Badr alDīn Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad ibn alĠazal, best known as Sibṭ alMāridīnī ("the son ...


The Commentary of the Šayḫ, the Head, the Extremely Knowledgeable Aḥmad alŠāfiʻī alJanājī alMālikī on the Commentary on the Yāsamīniyya on the Science of Algebra and Equations by Sibṭ alMāridīnī
This supercommentary (commentary on a commentary) by Aḥmad Muhammad alŠāfiʻī alJanājī alMālikī testifies to the liveliness and endurance of the Arabic mathematical tradition and demonstrates the continuous exegetical effort in which Arabic scientists commented upon previous works with the aim of expanding and clarifying their contents. The North African mathematician ‘Abd Allāh ibn Ḥajjāj ibn alYāsamīn (died 1204) conveyed his mathematical knowledge in a poem known as Yāsamīnīyya (The treatise by alYāsamīn). AlYāsamīn’s verses became the subject of a prose commentary, the Lum‘a alMaridinīyya fī Šarḥ alYāsamīnīyya (The ...
