Dionysodorus Biography of dionysodorus (BCBC) dionysodorus. Born about 250 BC in Greece http://sfabel.tripod.com/mathematik/database/Dionysodorus.html
Extractions: Previous (Alphabetically) Next Welcome page Dionysodorus solved the problem of the cubic equation using the intersection of a parabola and a hyperbola. There is certainly more than one mathematician called Dionysodorus and this does make it a little difficult in deciding exactly what was studied by each. Dionysodorus is believed to have invented a conical sundial. The report fails to make it clear which Dionysodorus this is, but the fact that the Dionysodorus described here worked on conic sections makes it likely that he is also the person to have studied a conical sundial.

Extractions: Vers 250 vers 190 av J.C. On est à peu près sûr quil y eut plusieurs mathématiciens appelés Dionysodorus et cela ne permet pas dattribuer à chacun la vraie paternité de ses travaux. Strabon, lhistorien et géographe grec, fait état dun mathématicien nommé Dionysodorus dAmisène (sur les bords de la Mer Noire), mais le plus célèbre de tous ces homonymes fut un Dionysodorus cité par Eutocius et qui serait parvenu à résoudre le problème des équations du troisième degré en utilisant lintersection entre une parabole et une hyperbole. Certains enfin pensent que ces deux mathématiciens pourraient correspondre à un seul et même personnage. Il existe de toute façon un autre Dionysodorus qui ne peut en aucune façon être confondu avec les deux précédents. Il sagit dun personnage cité par Pline lAncien dans ses « Histoires Naturelles » et qui aurait mesuré le rayon de la terre, lui attribuant une valeur de 42 000 stades, mais aucune indication sur sa méthode ne nous est hélas parvenue. Coïncidence étrange, Pline mourut dans léruption du Vésuve qui détruisit Pompéi et Herculanum en 79 La ville dHerculanum fut ensevelie sous une couche de 16

Dionysodorus dionysodorus. It was thought until early this century that the dionysodoruswho Eutocius refers to was dionysodorus of Amisene described by Strabo. http://www-gap.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/Mathematicians/Dionysodorus.html
Extractions: There is certainly more than one mathematician called Dionysodorus and this does make it a little difficult in deciding exactly what was studied by each. Strabo , the Greek geographer and historian (about 64 BC - about 24 AD), describes a mathematician named Dionysodorus who was born in Amisene, Pontus in northeastern Anatolia on the Black Sea. The Dionysodorus we are interested in here is the mathematician Dionysodorus who Eutocius states solved the problem of the cubic equation using the intersection of a parabola and a hyperbola . This was related to a problem of Archimedes given in On the Sphere and Cylinder. It was thought until early this century that the Dionysodorus who Eutocius refers to was Dionysodorus of Amisene described by Strabo. There is a second Dionysodorus who appears in the writings of Pliny . In Natural history Pliny mentions a certain Dionysodorus who measured the earth's radius and gave the value 42000 stades. Strabo distinguishes this Dionysodorus from Dionysodorus of Amisene and it is now thought that the Dionysodorus referred to by Pliny is not the mathematician who solved the problem of the cubic equation. Interestingly Pliny died as a result of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD and it is as a consequence of this eruption that new information regarding a mathematician Dionysodorus was published in 1900.

Extractions: Cubes in Greece A story tells us about King Minos being disappointed with his son, Glaukos´ cubic tombstone, he wanted the tombstone to be replaced by one having twice the volume. But his mathematicans failed to construct the new one. One example of where a value of a cubic root is approximated is in Heron's *metrica* in which he simply gives a numerical recipe, without either its general form or any justification or explanation. He writes: [to find the cube of 100] "Take the nearest cube numbers to 100 that are greater and lesser, these are 125 and 64. Then compute the differences with the number sought: 125-100=25 and 100-64=36. Multiply 5 by 36; this is 180. Add 100, getting 280. Divide 180 by 280, this gives 9/14. Add this to the side of the smaller cube, this gives 4 9/14. This is as near as is possible to the cubic parts [cubic side] of 100." There has been some discussion and conjecture on what 'formula' Heron might have had, or what the origin of this recipe might have been. Hippocrates of Chios was the first known to 'reduce' a problem, when he showed that to solve the doubling-the-cube problem (by ruler-and-compass construction only), one can do it if one can construct two mean proportionals. Solving the two mean proportion problem then became the issue at stake. Archytas, perhaps a generation or so later, showed another reduction although not a ruler-and-compass construction, so not a complete or proof-satisfactory solution.
EUTHYDEMUS By Plato, Part 07 To be sure they do, said Ctesippus; and they speak coldly of the insipid and colddialectician. You are abusive, Ctesippus, said dionysodorus, you are abusive! http://www.greece.com/library/plato/euthydemus_07.html
Extractions: Ctesippus said: And I, Socrates, am ready to commit myself to the strangers; they may skin me alive, if they please (and I am pretty well skinned by them already), if only my skin is made at last, not like that of Marsyas, into a leathern bottle, but into a piece of virtue. And here is Dionysodorus fancying that I am angry with him, when really I am not angry at all; I do but contradict him when I think that he is speaking improperly to me: and you must not confound abuse and contradiction, O illustrious Dionysodorus; for they are quite different things.

20th WCP: Two Kinds Of Paideia In Plato's Euthydemus that Plato's purpose in the dialogue is to contrast two educational methods eristic,as represented by the brothers Euthydemus and dionysodorus, and dialectic http://www.bu.edu/wcp/Papers/Anci/AnciSpra.htm
Extractions: University of South Carolina ABSTRACT: The structure of the Euthydemus Euthydemus is 'pedimental' in construction, although disagreeing with him as to where the central peripateia occurs. To place the turning point, as I would do, at 286E, is to show that the theme of the dialogue is paideia I Plato could hardly have made it more clear to the reader of the Euthydemus that his purpose in that dialogue is to contrast two kinds of education, to the praise of one and the detraction of the other. The very structure of the dialogue leads to this conclusion. Within an outer frame, in which Socrates' old friend Crito expresses anxiety about the education of his two young sons, are set five dramatic scenes. Of these the first, third, and fifth consist of displays of eristic technique on the part of two visiting sophists, the brothers Euthydemus and Dionysodorus. The remaining two scenes, the second and fourth, show Socrates in the exercise of dialctic. Not content with this overt juxtaposition of the two educational methods, Plato contrasts the two in subtler ways. Socrates and the young man Cleinias, for whose educational future he and his friends are concerned, are surrounded, not only by the alternating eristic scenes, but physically, in the actual seating arrangements indicated by Plato; Dionysodorus sits down on the left of Socrates, Euthydemus on the right of Cleinias. We appear to have an attempt on the part of eristic to encircle and imprison dialectic.
