 Highlights in the History of Algebra
The development of algebraic notation progressed through three stages: the rhetorical (or verbal) stage, the syncopated stage (in which abbreviated words were used), and the symbolic stage with which we are all familiar.
Renaissance mathematics was to be characterized by the rise of algebra.
This advance freed algebra from the consideration of particular equations and thus allowed a great increase in generality and opened the possibility for studying the relationship between the coefficients of an equation an the roots of the equation ("theory of equations").
