  Geometry - LoveToKnow 1911
Between Euclid and Apollonius there flourished the illustrious Archimedes, whose geometrical discoveries are mainly concerned with the mensuration of the circle and conic sections, and of the sphere, cone and cylinder, and whose greatest contribution to geometrical method is the elevation of the method of exhaustion to the dignity of an instrument of research.
Euclid therefore next solves the problem: It is required along a given straight line from a point in it to set off a distance equal to the length of another straight line given anywhere in the plane.
Euclid does not suppose,that the bases of the two pyramids to be compared are equal, and hence he proves that the volumes are as the bases.

 Euclid's Elements, Introduction
Euclid's Elements form one of the most beautiful and influential works of science in the history of humankind.
The Elements have been studied 24 centuries in many languages starting, of course, in the original Greek, then in Arabic, Latin, and many modern languages.

 Euclidean algorithm
The Euclidean algorithm (also called Euclid's algorithm) is an extremely efficient algorithm to determine the greatest common divisor (GCD) of two integers.
Euclid originally formulated the problem geometrically, as the problem of finding a common "measure" for two line lengths, and his algorithm proceeded by repeated subtraction of the shorter from the longer segment.
When analyzing the runtime of Euclid's algorithm, it turns out that the inputs requiring the most steps are two successive Fibonacci numbers, and the worst case requires Θ(n) divisions, where n is the number of digits in the input (see Big O notation).

 Euclid's Elements
Euclid based his work in Book I on 23 definitions, such as Point, line and Surface, five postulates and five "common notions" (both of which are today called axioms).
Nevertheless, the Elements continues to be used as an adequate example of the application of Logic, and, historically, it has been enormously influential in many areas of Science.
Elements was written in approximately 300 BC by Euclid, an ancient Greek mathematician who probably studied under the pupils of Plato.

 Element Design
SiC elements typically operate at low voltages, and are usually supplied by transformers that reduce the supply voltage (it is possible to design to match the element configuration to the supply voltage, but often this is not possible due to other furnace design considerations).
When an old element fails a new element cannot be inserted in the series connection, so the whole group of elements must be replaced (or furnace usage time must be logged, so that elements of similar age are used together).
Other considerations in element design are the diameter of the coil - outside coil diameter should ideally be 10-14 times the wire diameter, and the stretched length of the coil - there should be at least one wire diameter between the coils (2 to 1 stretch) and ideally 2-5 wire diameters (3-6 to 1 stretch).

 Euclid's Elements in Greek   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Euclid's Elements is by far the most famous mathematical work of classical antiquity, and also has the distinction of being the world's oldest continuously used mathematical textbook.
Most of the theorems appearing in Euclid's Elements were not discovered by Euclid himself, but were the work of earlier Greek mathematicians such as Pythagoras (and his school), Hippocrates of Chios, Theaetetus, and Eudoxus of Cnidos.
However, Euclid is generally credited with arranging these theorems in a logical manner, so as to demonstrate (admittedly, not always with the rigour demanded by modern mathematics) that they necessarily follow from five simple axioms.

Pythagoras' theorem, one of the most famous geometric proofs, is in fact due to Euclid: it is stated as proposition 47 in Book I. Euclid was studied as part of the arts degree in the medieval curriculum.
The course consisted primarily of philosophy, particularly drawing upon the works of Aristotle; to begin, the students would study logic and rhetoric before progressing to mathematics, arithmetic and geometry, the physical sciences such as astronomy and optics, and ethics.
Euclid was the fundamental text in the study of geometry, although only the first six books were usually required.
