On trisection of an angle leading to the derivation of a cubic equation and computation of the value of sine (1984)


Description “Many attempts have been made to solve the problem of trisection of an arc or angle since antiquity. In this paper a method suggested by an Indian mathematician, Ghulām Husain Jaunpuri (b. 1790), is highlighted. Derivation of a cubic equation by it and its application in computation of the value of sine are also discussed.”
