Jia Xian


Jia Xian (simplified Chinese: 贾宪; traditional Chinese: 賈憲; pinyin: Jiǎ Xiàn; Wade–Giles: Chia Hsien; ca meat tenderiser machine. 1010–1070) was a Chinese mathematician from Kaifeng of the Song dynasty.

According to the history of the Song dynasty, Jia was a palace eunuch of the Left Duty Group. He studied under the mathematician Chu Yan, and was well versed in mathematics, writing many books on the subject. Jia Xian invented the Pascal’s triangle (Jia Xian triangle) around the middle of the 11th century, about six centuries before Pascal. Jia used it as a tool for extracting square and cubic roots. The original book by Jia entitled Shi Suo Suan Shu was lost; however, Jia’s method was expounded in detail by Yang Hui, who explicitly acknowledged his source: „My method of finding square and cubic roots was based on the Jia Xian method in Shi Suo Suan Shu.“ A page from the Yongle Encyclopedia preserved this historic fact double wall stainless steel water bottle.

Jia Xian’s additive-multiplicative method implemented the „Horner“ rule.
