Si Archimedes kan Syracuse (/ˌɑːrkɪˈmdz/;[2] ; ; c. 287 – c. 212 BC) sarong matematikong Griyego, pisikp, inhinyero, imbentor asin astronomiko.[3] Dawa pa dikit lang ang aram sa detalye kan saiyang buhay, siya an saro sa mga nanginginot na siyentista. Kinokonsiderar na pinakamatibay na matematiko sa suanoy na kasaysayan asin saro sa pinakamatibay sa gabos na panahon.[4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13]

Naantisipiran niya an pagkakaigwa kan modernong calculus asin analysis sa paggamit nin konsepto na infinitely small asin method of exhaustion hali sa pag-aram nin geometrical theorems,[14][15] kabali na an: the area of a circle; surface area asin volume of a sphere; area of an ellipse; the area under a parabola; the volume of a segment of a paraboloid of revolution; the volume of a segment of a hyperboloid of revolution; and the area of a spiral.[16][17]

""To be sure, Pappus does twice mention the theorem on the tangent to the spiral [IV, 36, 54]. But in both instances the issue is Archimedes' inappropriate use of a "solid neusis," that is, of a construction involving the sections of solids, in the solution of a plane problem. Yet Pappus' own resolution of the difficulty [IV, 54] is by his own classification a "solid" method, as it makes use of conic sections." (p. 48)".
