His only publication during his life was an article entitled “Logometria” (). After his death his mathematical papers, then in great confusion, were edited by Robert Smith and published as a book, Harmonia mensurarum (). This work, which includes the “Logometria” as its first part, gives an indication of Cotes’s great ability. Books, images, historic newspapers, maps, archives and more.

Harmonia Mensurarum. The second edition of Isaac Newton's Principia was published by Richard Bentley, the famous classical scholar and Master of Trinity College. Bentley was not universally well-liked (to put it mildly), and was certainly no scientist or mathematician, so it may seem odd that Newton chose him as his publisher, especially.

Lots of books and web sites claim that the lituus was first defined by Roger Cotes (correct) but named by Maclaurin in his "Harmonia mensurarum" in I believe the latter is incorrect on two accounts: 1) Cotes was the first to use the Harmonia mensurarum book lituus, not Maclaurin; 2) Harmonia mensurarum () was the book by Cotes where the lituus was.

Description The lituus curve originated with Cotes and is described in his book Harmonia Mensurarum ().Lituus means a crook, for example a bishop's rin gave the curve its name in The lituus is the locus of the point P P P moving in such a manner that the area of a circular sector remains constant.

Cotes's writings were collected and published in under the titles Harmonia Mensurarum and Opera Miscellanea.

That part which deals with the theory of partial. In the Harmonia Mensurarum (), Samuel Earnshaw in a book published in used the term “Cotes’ spirals”, so the terminology was in use at that time.

Earnshaw clearly describes Cotes's 5 cases and unnecessarily adds a 6th, which is when the force is centrifugal (repulsive). The learned editor of Mr. Cotes's Harmonia Mensurarum first gave us, in that book, the celebrated theorems for computing the areas of the curves whose ordinates are expressed by x p a n + x n, x p a n + x n × e n + x n, or x p a 2 n + 2 c a n x n + x 2 n.
