Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0486446190, Paperback)

An exploration of the 13th-century mathematician Ch'in, this fascinating book combines what is known of Ch'in's life with a history of his only extant work, the Shu-shu chiu-chang. Ch'in's most original contribution to mathematics is the Chinese remainder theorem for the solution of indeterminate equations of the first degree. 1973 edition. Includes 71 figures and 85 diagrams.
