Book Review: The Cult of Pythagoras
We review ``"The Cult of Pythagoras: Math and Myths" by Alberto A. Martinez, 2012. The book sets out a number of mathematical myths and dissolves them by a combination of checking historical sources and calculating results using the mathematics of the time. We pay particular attention to a chapter on division by zero. We record the earliest dates for particular solutions to the problem of division by zero and the ambition to have total mathematical systems.
