Scaling into Pythagoras' Theorem

Brian R. Stonebridge, Scaling into Pythagoras' Theorem. Mathematical Spectrum, 29 (2). ISSN 0025-5653, pp. 36–36. January 1997. No electronic version available.


According to fairly reliable sources, the year 2000 is the 2500th anniversary of the death of Pythagoras of Alexandria, and 2001 is the 2600th anniversary of his birth. His theorem has probably been proved more times than any other theorem, yet even after almost 10^4/4 years new approaches appear.
