Abstract: Al-Khwarizmi’s books Al-Kitab al-mukhtasar fi hisab al-jabr wa-l-muqabal (The Book of Aljabr and Almuqabala) and Al-Kitab al-jam wa-t-tafriq bi-hisab al-Hind (a source for Dixit Algorizmi) form the origin of the mathematics of calculations, i.e. arithmetic and algebra. The first Czech translation of these books with the commentary by Petr Vopěnka was published in 2008. The 2nd edition (2009), involves the three new additional texts. The purpose of this contribution is an introduction to these source books with stressing out origins of Arabic mathematics of calculations and the border lines between the Indian and Greek mathematics. The paper deals with also some philosophical and methodical aspects of them.
