Standing on the Shoulders of the Giant Influence of Seki Takakazu on Takebe Katahiro’s Mathematical Achievements
Seki Takakazu (ca. 1642–1708) and his pupils develop the Wasan [Japanese mathematics] into the most advanced mathematics in the world outside Europe in the Edo period (1603–1867), and mathematical achievements of Seki Takakazu and Takebe Katahiro (1664–1739) laid foundation for the Wasan. In order to commemorate this outstanding mathematician, this paper surveys Seki’s influence on Takebe Katahiro, who was his excellent pupil.
