By Roshdi Rashed

Mit dem funften Buch der Kegelschnitte erreicht die antike Mathematik einen Hohepunkt. Apollonius fuhrt darin die erste bekannte Theorie der Maxima- und Minima-Linien aus, die von den Mathematikern zu Beginn des 10. und vor allem des 17. Jahrhunderts wieder aufgegriffen wurde. Ebenso wie die folgenden beiden Bucher VI und VII ist dieses Buch, dessen griechische Original-Fassung verloren ist, nur in der arabischen Ubersetzung erhalten, die im nine. Jahrhundert in Bagdad erstellt wurde.
Der Leser findet in diesem Band eine im wahrsten Wortsinn kritische variation des funften Buches der Kegelschnitte von Apollonius, eine strenge und wortgetreue Ubersetzung, sowie eine so vielseitige und ausfuhrliche historische und mathematische Kommentierung, wie sie die Erschlieung eines solch gewichtigen Zeugnisses erfordert.
