Notes

This represents a series of titles listed in MAMS (p. 125, A9) that may or may not be by Ibn Sīnā. Several are clearly not by him (e.g. the R. fī al-hayʾa, which is by the Ikhwān al-Ṣafāʾ, for which see). al-Mukhtaṣar fī ʿilm al-hayʾa is probably the astronomy section of the Shifāʾ or its appendix, but the manuscripts listed in MAMS and GAS need to be checked individually.
