In this summary the theorems and their corollaries (corollaria) are restated in our modern notation, without proofs. The essence of the statements, however, has been preserved. For the proofs we refer to the text, the translation, and the notes. This summary aims only at giving a global survey of the contents of the book. For an overview of the structure of Liber Secundus and the method followed by Jan de Witt, we refer the reader to the Introduction, Section 1.10.
