This seminar is organised by CIUHCT and the Departament of History and Philosophy and Sciences FCUL since , dedicated to the history of ancient astronomy, widening the concept to historical aspects of the discipline, and others connected to it, until the 19th century. Following a monthly schedule, this intends to be a space for discussion of topics of an essentially technical nature, meaning, unafraid to approach mathematics, calculus, and complicated languages.

The themes can go from esential mathematical technicques from the Almagest, the calculation of calendars and astrological practices, to the models of Cosmos for astronomical navigation and instruments.

Sessions in portuguese. It takes place at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, for a total of 36 hours. The course will be particularly focued on the design, organisation, implementation and impact analysis of public engagement activities, such as exhibitions, science festivals, and games. At the end of the course, the students will be able to develop and produce low-budget events, or products intended to dissemination of scientific ideas and results.

The edition will be from November 11 to November 15, and submissions are accepted until October Please download the pamphlet below to have all the information before applying via email at cmluis fc.

The courses aims to provide an introduction to cartometric methods of geometrical analysis and numerical modeling, which can be applied to the study of ancient maps and charts. It is also open to all other teachers, researchers, and students, the University of Lisbon community, and the general public.

Mathemata mathematicis scribuntur [mathematics are written for mathematiciens] — which is to say: one who doesn't understand the technical aspects, can't understand anything. This was Copernicus' defense De rev, preface , anticipating the opposition waiting his innovative proposal.

Unfortunately, his advice was not respected, neither by his contemporaries, nor by legions of commentators, confident they can understand Copernicus' "revolution" without understanding his mathematics. On saturdays, from 2. Seminar Lectures. November 2.

Cláudio Ptolomeu

Na Astronomia, Ptolomeu sintetiza no ano de d. Ele era usado para determinar a altura dos astros acima do horizonte, sobretudo a do Sol. Feito em ferro, a rodela graduada era suspensa por um anel e apontado para o objeto celeste de modo a poder-se tomar a altura deste. Os temas abordados foram de maior leveza e simplicidade. However, of all the ancient Greek mathematicians, it is fair to say that his work has generated more discussion and argument than any other.
