This variation of Books IV to VII of Diophantus' Arithmetica, that are extant in basic terms in a lately came across Arabic translation, is the outgrowth of a doctoral dissertation submitted to the Brown collage division of the historical past of arithmetic in may perhaps 1975. Early in 1973, my thesis adviser, Gerald Toomer, realized of the life of this manuscript in A. Gulchln-i Macanl's just-published catalogue of the mathematical manuscripts within the Mashhad Shrine Library, and secured a photographic replica of it. In Sep­ tember 1973, he proposed that the research of it's the topic of my dissertation. on account that barriers of time pressured us to settle on priorities, the 1st goal used to be to set up a severe textual content and to translate it. as a result, the Arabic textual content and the English translation look right here almost as they did in my thesis. significant adjustments, besides the fact that, are present in the mathematical com­ mentary and, much more so, within the Arabic index. The dialogue of Greek and Arabic interpolations is fullyyt new, as is the reconstruction of the heritage of the Arithmetica from Diophantine to Arabic instances. it really is with the inner most gratitude that I recognize my nice debt to Gerald Toomer for his consistent encouragement and necessary assistance.

Additions by Earlier Readers (or Copyists) Two kinds of minor additions are incorporated in the manuscript's text: those originating from earlier readers' explanations or corrections, which were originally marginal or supralineal, and those reSUlting from a scribe's mechanical repetition (dittography).
