Rene Descartes little book here solves the past, and heralds the future. Descartes uses lines to find intersections of these special curves.

These intersections are roots of equations. Descartes basically generalizes the old Greek geometric algebra of finding roots to higher curves.

He finds correspondences to properties of the theory of /5(10). With this volume Descartes founded modern analytical geometry.

Reducing geometry to algebra and analysis and, conversely, showing that analysis may be translated into geometry, it opened the way for modern mathematics. Descartes was the first to classify curves systematically and to demonstrate algebraic solution of geometric curves.
