Abstract Note  The origins of the mathematics in this book date back more than two thou sand years, as can be seen from the fact that one of the most important algorithms presented here bears the name of the Greek mathematician Eu clid. The word "algorithm" as well as the key word "algebra" in the title of this book come from the name and the work of the ninthcentury scientist Mohammed ibn Musa alKhowarizmi, who was born in what is now Uzbek istan and worked in Baghdad at the court of Harun alRashid's son. The word "algorithm" is actually a westernization of alKhowarizmi's name, while "algebra" derives from "aljabr," a term that appears in the title of his book Kitab aljabr wa'l muqabala, where he discusses symbolic methods for the solution of equations. This close connection between algebra and al gorithms lasted roughly up to the beginning of this century; until then, the primary goal of algebra was the design of constructive methods for solving equations by means of symbolic transformations. During the second half of the nineteenth century, a new line of thought began to enter algebra from the realm of geometry, where it had been successful since Euclid's time, namely, the axiomatic method.
