Abstract also in English: The circulation of Western mathematics at the court during the Kangxi period : a case study of the compilation of the Suanfa zuanyao zonggang by Antoine Thomas.

" ... compilation of Shuli jingyun (Essential principles of mathematics, 1722) can be traced back to 1689 when two French Jesuits, Jean-François Gerbillon (1654-1707) and Joachim Bouvet (1656-1730), and a Belgian, Antoine Thomas (1644-1707) took up the task of tutoring the Kangxi Emperor in mathematics....this article focuses on the contribution of Antoine Thomas. It provides evidence that the Chinese treatise Suanfa zuanyao zonggang (Outline of the essentials of calculation) was to a large extent based on Thomas' Latin treatise, the Synopsis Mathematica (1685). The source for significant portions of Shuli jingyun is thus identified...”—English abstract, p. 22.
