    Archimedes’ most sophisticated use of the method of exhaustion, which remained unsurpassed until the development of integral calculus in the 17th Century, was his proof – known as the Quadrature of the Parabola – that the area of a parabolic segment is 4 ⁄ 3 that of a certain inscribed triangle. He dissected the area of a parabolic segment (the region enclosed by a 5/5(28).   The Hardcover of the Elements of Geometry: Containing the First Six Books of Euclid, with a Supplement on the Quadrature of the Circle, and the Geometry of Due to COVID, orders may be delayed.

The quadratrix or trisectrix of Hippias (also quadratrix of Dinostratus) is a curve, which is created by a uniform is one of the oldest examples for a kinematic curve, that is a curve created through motion. Its discovery is attributed to the Greek sophist Hippias of Elis, who used it around BC to trisect an angle (hence trisectrix).Later around BC Dinostratus used it to.

The lune being described here is the one inside the second smaller circle and outside the larger.

That would require finding a square equal to a given circle. This problem of quadrature of the circle was one of three famous problems that goes back at least to the time of Anaxagoras, about years before Euclid.

It is equivalent to constructing a line segment of length π (relative to a unit length). This problem was solved by ancient.
