(Venice, 1 543); Trojanus Curtius published the two books on Floating Bodies in 1565 after Tartaglia's death; Frederic Cornmandine edited the Aldine edition of 1558, 4to, which contains Circuli Dimensio, De Lineis Spiralibus, Quadratura Paraboles, De Conoidibus et Spheroidibus, and De numero Arenae; and in 1565 the same mathematician published the two books De its quae vehuntur in aqua.
For Tartaglia's discovery of the solution of cubic equations, and his contests with Antonio Marie Floridas, see Algebra (History).
Tartaglia's first printed work, entitled Nuova scienzia (Venice, 1 537), dealt with the theory and practice of gunnery.
Tartaglia's own account of his early life is contained in his Quesiti, lib.
Tartaglia's writings on gunnery were translated into English by Lucar in 1588, and into French by Rieffel in 1845.
