Kamal Al-Din Farsi and amicable numbers
The purpose of this paper is to introduce the work of Kamal Al-Din Farsi, a thirteenth century Islamic (Iranian) mathematician. In order to verify the rule for finding pairs of amicable numbers, set by Thabit Ibn Qurra, Kamal Al-Din wrote an article consisting of twenty-five propositions. Kamal Al-Din's article was translated from Arabic to Farsi by Abulghassem Ghorbani in 1984 in a book called Farsi Nameh published by Homa Publication in Tehran 1984. This thesis studies and translates Kamal Al-Din's article on amicable numbers from Farsi to English.
