Appendix

We prove here the Archimedean results quoted in Section 2.7 as Lemmas 1 and 2. In his demonstrations, Archimedes used freely theorems that were well known in his day (just as we do). Since none of the works on conics written before Apollonius has survived, we do not know exactly how Archimedes would have written the proofs of these auxiliary results. Therefore we freely reconstruct demonstrations of the propositions taken for granted by Archimedes, and then, when dealing with the lemmas he actually demonstrates, we follow his proofs closely. Preliminary Results Assumed by Archimedes We denote by C the vertex of the segment of parabola of base AB, and by M the midpoint of AB. Our starting point is the following proposition: Proposition. Given a point F in the plane, draw the parallel to AB and let G denote its intersection with the half-line CM originating at C, if this intersection exists. Then F lies on the parabola if and only if the intersection G exists and is such that CM GF2 = CG MB2 .
C G F

Archimedes makes direct use of only one half of this equivalence (the only if part), but we give the Proposition in the form above because this allows the easy deduction, as corollaries, of all the results that Archimedes

400

Appendix

takes as known. We will not prove the Proposition here,209 but only how the necessary corollaries follow from it. Corollary 1. The line going through C and parallel to AB does not intersect the parabola except at C. If this line intersects the parabola at a point F, we have C = G, and the Proposition implies G = F, that is, F = C. Note that this corollary justies our talking about the vertex. Corollary 2. The line CM does not intersect the parabola except at C. If CM intersects the parabola at a point F, we have F = G, and the Proposition implies G = C, that is, F = C. Corollary 3. Every parallel to CM intersects the parabola in exactly one point. If a parallel to CM intersects the parabola at F and F , consider the corresponding points G and G along CM. Because of parallelism, GFF G is a parallelogram, so GF = G F , so by the Proposition CG = CG . It follows that G = G and F = F. Corollary 4. The line CM is parallel to the diameter (symmetry axis) of the parabola. If we apply the Proposition to the particular case where A and B are symmetrical with respect to the diameter, symmetry implies that CM coincides with the diameter. Corollary 3 then implies that any line parallel to the diameter intersects the parabola in a single point. Thus it is enough to show that the direction of the diameter is the only one that has this property. To do this we again use again the Proposition in the case where CM coincides with the diameter. Given a point L of AB distinct from M, the half-line CL will intersect the parabola not only in C but also in the point F whose orthogonal projection G onto the diameter satises the relation CG/CM = MB2 /ML2 . Corollary 5. A line CN joining the vertex C of a segment of parabola of base AB with a point N of the base, is parallel to the diameter of the parabola if and only if N is the midpoint of AB. This is an immediate consequence of Corollary 4. Lemmas Proved by Archimedes Lemma 3. If C is the vertex of the segment of parabola of base AB, the area of the triangle ABC is more than half the area of the segment of parabola.
209 The reader may enjoy reconstructing a purely geometric proof that reects the following outline suggested by analytic geometry: Assume without loss of generality that the base AB is the x-axis. First deal with parabolas whose axis of symmetry is vertical; then reduce the general case to the particular case by applying a shearing transformation y y, x x + ky.

Appendix

401

Archimedes demonstrates this by considering the parallelogram ABPQ comprised between the base AB, the line passing through C and parallel to the base, and the parallels to the diameter passing through A and B, respectively:
Q C P

This parallelogram encloses the segment of parabola, by the denition of the vertex and because, by Corollary 3, sides AQ and BP intersect the segment of parabola only once. The lemma follows easily, by observing that the area of the segment of parabola is less than that of the parallelogram ABPQ, which is twice that of the triangle ABC. Lemma 4. If C is the vertex of the segment of parabola of base AB and D is the vertex of the segment of parabola of base CB, the area of triangle CBD is one-eighth that of triangle ABC.
C D E A M N B

Lemma 2 is proved by Archimedes using the Proposition, Corollary 5 and typical arguments of elementary geometry, that is, the methods laid out in Euclids Elements. Consider parallels to the diameter of the parabola passing though C and D, respectively. By Corollary 5, the rst of these lines intersects AB at its midpoint M, and the second intersects CB at its midpoint E. Let N be the intersection of AB with the line ED. Because MCB and NEB are similar triangles, N is the midpoint of MB. Let G be the intersection of CM with the parallel to AB going through D. By the Proposition we have CM/CG = MB2 /GD2 . But GD is equal to MN (they are opposite sides of a parallelogram). We thus have CM/CG = 3 CM. At the same time, since MCB and MB2 /MN2 = 4, and DN = GM = 4 1 NEB are similar triangles, we have NE = 2 CM; thus NE = 2DE.
C G E A M N B D

402

Appendix

If one of two triangles of the same altitude has double the others base, its area is also double. Applying this trivial observation to the equality NE = 2DE, we get area CNE = 2 area CED; area NEB = 2 area BED; and adding the two relations, area CNB = 2 area CBD;
1 1 area CDB = 2 area CNB = 8 area ABC:

This concludes the proof of the lemma.

List of Passages

Names of works generally follow the (Latin) uniform title used in bibliographic catalogs, even when a translated name is used in the text. For lost works or those that have no uniform title, we use an English translation. Citations may include book (Roman caps), chapter (Roman lowercase) and/or other traditional number (). The rst Arabic numeral not otherwise marked is always the page number in the reference edition, sometimes followed by the line number after a colon. The letter f after a page number indicates a gure, n a footnote.
