Validity?[edit]

Apart from one newspaper article citing Needham, I've been unable to find any other references to this mathematician apart from websites citing this one, or again Needham. Can we open the scope of this a little further and get more citations in here as to such simplistic things as, his existance for one, birth place, life, et cetera. Jachin 20:41, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

  • There is a new translation of Nine Chapter, published by Oxford University Press, I believe

there must be plenty of additional information about Liu Hui's life and work. I don't have this reference at hand, ($466 is too steep for me}. I do have Wu Wenjun's excellent Grand Series of Chinese Mathematics Vol 1 thru 8, in which vol 3 is dedicated to the life and work of Liu Hui.

Having said this, actually very little is known about Liu Hui. Gisling (talk) 23:43, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
