reviel netz Reviel Netz

What does Archimedes do when he does Mechanics?

Professor Netz will look at the four treatises where Archimedes uses the Center of the Weight (Balancing Planes, Quadrature of Parabola, Method, Floating Bodies) and raise questions concerning Archimedes' overall goals in those treatises. He will also describe our source for some of these works, The Archimedes Palimpsest.
