Catalogue Note

The pioneering French civil engineer and professor of geometry Maurice d'Ocagne spent most of his life devising transformations to make graphical calculation schemes usable. The seventeenth item here is the work in which he fully established his reputation. In it d’Ocagne explores the entire field of nomograms and discusses how to execute the various transformations needed to both create them and facilitate their use. Its publication changed the construction of nomograms from a haphazard process of trial and error to a systematic methodology.
