The algebraical notations in the following notes will be the same as in the mathematical summary (Chapter 2). In some of the notes to propositions 4–12 I have referred to Maimonides’ notes to the Completion (see Chapter 10). References such as (f. 32a:23–32b:2) are to part A of the manuscript Manisa, Genel 1706, which contains the text of Maimonides’ notes (see §12.1).
