  1. Christian Houzel (2009). The New Astronomy of Ibn Al-Haytham. Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 19 (1):1-41.
    In order to get rid of the contradictions he had identified in Ptolemy’s Astronomy, Ibn al-Haytham abandons cosmology and develops a purely kinematic description of the movement of the wandering stars. This description culminates with the proof that such a star, during its daily movement, reaches exactly one time a maximum height above the horizon and that any inferior height is reached exactly twice. The proofs of these facts necessitates new mathematical tools and Ibn al-Haytham is led to establish very (...)

  5. Christian Houzel (1995). Sharaf Al-Dīn Al- Ūsī Et le Polygone de Newton. Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 5 (02):239-.
    The Treatise on Equations of Sharaf al-DsUmar al-Khayys a proof based on an intuitive notion of connexity. Secondly, al- develops algorithms for the numerical resolution of these third-degree equations. The first stage of one of these algorithms follows a procedure which is akin to the so-called method of Newton's polygon.
