He was born around 780 in Khwārizm[2] (now Khiva, Uzbekistan) and died around 850. He worked most of his life as a scholar in the House of Wisdom in Baghdad.<br /><br />His Algebra was the first book on the systematic solution of linear and quadratic equations. Consequently he is considered to be the father of algebra,[3] a title he shares with Diophantus. Latin translations of his Arithmetic, on the Indian numerals, introduced the decimal positional number system to the Western world in the 12th century.[4] He revised and updated Ptolemy's Geography as well as writing several works on astronomy and astrology.<br /><br />His contributions not only made a great impact on mathematics, but on language as well. The word algebra is derived from al-jabr, one of the two operations used to solve quadratic equations, as described in his book. The words algorism and algorithm stem from Algoritmi, the Latinization of his name.[5] His name is also the origin of the Spanish word guarismo[6] and of the Portuguese word algarismo, both meaning digit.discrete personhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/10533058617607748641noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7497296371579035244.post-56699551320732052722008-03-12T07:05:00.000-07:002008-03-12T07:07:30.784-07:00meaning optimization problemIn mathematics and computer science, an optimization problem is the problem of finding the best solution from all feasible solutions.discrete personhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/10533058617607748641noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7497296371579035244.post-25261657550279717102008-01-23T22:21:00.000-08:002008-01-26T22:54:03.859-08:00Assignment 3<span style="font-weight:bold;">LOGIC</span><br /><br />-What is proporsition<br />Sentences considered in propositional logic are not arbitrary sentences but are the ones that are either true or false, but not both.<br /><br /><br />-What is truth table<br />This relationship of the value of a proposition and those of its constituent variables can be represented by a table.
