  • The Division Algorithm is known to be the fundamental foundation for Number Theory and it leads to the Euclidean Algorithm and hence the whole theory of divisibility properties. In JiuZhang SuanShu(九章算術), greatest common divisiors are obtained by the exactly same method as the Euclidean Algorithm in Elements but the other theory on divisibility was not pursued any more in Chinese mathematics. Unlike the other authors of the traditional Chinese mathematics, Zhu ShiJie(朱世傑) noticed in his SuanXue QiMeng(算學啓蒙, 1299) that the Division Algorithm is a really important concept. In [4], we claimed that Zhu wrote the book with a far more deeper insight on mathematical structures. Investigating the Division Algorithm in SuanXue QiMeng in more detail, we show that his theory of Division Algorithm substantiates his structural apporaches to mathematics.

  • It is well known that SuanXue QiMeng has given the greatest contribution to the development of Chosun mathematics and that the topics and their presentation including TianYuanShu in the book have been one of the most important backbones in the developement. The purpose of this paper is to reveal that Zhu ShiJie emphasized decidedly mathematical structures in his SuanXue QiMeng, which in turn had a great influence to Chosun mathematicians' structural approaches to mathematics. Investigating structural approaches in Chinese mathematics books before SuanXue QiMeng, we conclude that Zhu's attitude to mathematical structures is much more developed than his precedent ones and that his mathematical structures are very close to the present ones.

  • In the 19th century, Chosun mathematicians studied the most distinguished mathematicians Qin Jiu Shao(泰九韶), Li Ye(李治) Zhu Shi Jie(朱世傑) in Song(宋), Yuan(元) Dynasty and they established a solid theoretical development on the theory of equations. These studies began with their study on Si yuan yu jian xi cao(四元玉鑑細艸) compiled by Luo Shi Lin(羅士琳). Among those Chosun mathematicians, Lee Sang Hyuk(李尙爀, $1810{\sim}?$) and Nam Byung Gil(南秉吉 $1820{\sim}1869$) contributed prominently to the research. Relating to Si yuan yu jian xi cao, Nam Byung Gil and Lee Sang Hyuk compiled OgGamSeChoSangHae(玉監細艸詳解) and SaWonOgGam(四元玉鑑), respectively and then later they wrote SanHakJeongEi(算學正義) and IkSan(翼算), respectively. The latter in particular contains most creative results in Chosun Dynasty mathematics. Using these books, we study the relation between the development of Chosun mathematics and Si yuan yu jian.
