Friday, November 20, 2009, 1:30pm
Dr. William Noel, Director of the Archimedes Palimpsest Project and Co-Author of The Archimedes Codex
EUREKA! The Archimedes Palimpsest

In his lecture, Dr. William Noel will discuss the discovery of the earliest known text of works by the ancient Greek mathematician Archimedes, and the recent project to conserve, image and publish the manuscript. The Archimedes Palimpsest contains the unique texts for two treatises by Archimedes. Only the latest imaging technology has brought these texts properly to light, and the results are rewriting the history of Mathematics and revealing hitherto unknown texts from the Ancient World. Dr Noel is the director of the Archimedes palimpsest project, and co-author, with Reviel Netz of The Archimedes Codex. Event poster
