Heronian mean
Posted:
Jun 23, 2003 4:24 PM


Two questions that I hope someone can give me info about...
1) What is the origin of the association between Heron and the Heronian mean which appears in the Moscow Papyrus
2) Is there any such thing as the Heronian mean of three numbers? and if so does it have any geometric interpretation.
Thanks to any who can provide insight.
Pat
