Omar Chayyam was the first in history to systematically solve the qubic equation: ax3+bx2+cx+d=0. This problem is now elaborated, with extensive comments, in this german study. A comprehensive introduction allows exciting views into the social conditions and circumstances of this specific era of scientific history, that still is rather unfamiliar to contemporary western society.
