title = "An Archimedean research theme: the calculation of the volume of cylindrical groins",

abstract = "Starting from Archimedes{\textquoteright} method for calculating the volume of cylindrical wedges, I want to get to describe a method of 18th century for cilindrical groins thought by Girolamo Settimo and Nicol{\`o} di Martino. Several mathematicians studied the measurement of wedges, by applying notions of infinitesimal and integral calculus; in particular I examinated Settimo{\textquoteright}s Treatise on cylindrical groins, where the author solved several problems by means of integrals",
