Abstract

It is the purpose of this paper to examine the problems and methods found in Diophantus' Arithmetics and to see the development of certain of those problems in the work of Euler and Fermat. Through these considerations, it would be hoped that eh reader would gain an appreciation of the man Diophantus, a mathematician who worked toward rather than with the modern background of knowledge.
