This course will be an introduction to my favorite facet of computational topology: Algorithms for curves and graphs embedded in the plane or other surfaces. Algorithmic questions about curves have been a driving force in topology since its inception more than a century ago. Thomas Bradwardine, Geometria speculativa (c) An unfolding of.   Bradwardine’s book Geometria Speculativa. Bradwardine was eventually made Archbishop of Canturberry, but not long thereafter he died, a victim of the black plague. He was one of the few Christians at the time who could be said to have sound theology. He believed in predestination, holding that grace was necessary for salvation.

Bradwardine’s Geometria Speculativa, written in Oxford as an aid to students Some of the most sophisticated mathematical discussions of the Middle Ages took place at Oxford in the 14th century, where mathematics was used and developed along the lines of the programme that Grosseteste and Bacon had advocated. Most of the scholars concerned with. This book traces the history of a large part of scholastic philosophy from to - if this is a history of balance, it is a lot more besides.' Edith Dudley Sylla Source: Isis: A Cited by: Thomas Bradwardine's Geometria speculativa is a work essentially different from that of Bacon (33). Perhaps its most appropriate description would be that of a primer of elementary geometry. As such it is less explicitly philosophical. It can be viewed, however, as a geometry written for by: 2.

Ufford, however, died of the Black Death before consecration, and Bradwardine was then elected with the king's approval.
