I suppose it has gradually dawned on many that the HM (Historia
Matematica) list is no more. My message on Al-Khayyam's Commentary on
Euclid's Elements which I submitted on Jan. 1 was the last to be
released to the membership of that list. You can read it on: My purpose in writing the
message was to stir up discussion. If there was any discussion I am
unaware of it, since no further messages were distributed by Julio,
although several have been submitted. If anyone does have any comments,
I will be very pleased if you would post them here. In February I
submitted to Julio my message on Book II. Since it has never been
distributed, I will post it here shortly. I had not finished composing
my thoughts on Book III which is much more difficult and I am afraid my
thoughts on all these matters are somewhat stale at this point, so it
may be a while before I can compose something on that.
