Description

A survey of Graph Theory analysis techniques applied to the proofs in Euclid's Elements. By keeping track of which propositions are cited by which proofs in the text, one can build a graph structure of the text. If you want to see the inner workings of a 2000 year old geometry textbook, this presentation is for you.
