Click here for a longer List of including many more 20th-century mathematicians. This construction which introduced the Archytas Curve has been called "a tour de force of the spatial imagination. He wrote about arithmetic methods, plane and solid geometry, the axiomatic method, celestial motions and mechanics.
He also coined the word cipher, which became English zero although this was just a translation from the Sanskrit word for zero introduced by Aryabhata. These three transformations are called congruence transformations. He seems to have been a much better mathematician than Chang, but just as Newton might have gotten nowhere without Kepler, Vieta, Huygens, Fermat, Wallis, Cavalieri, etc.
While Al-Biruni may lack the influence and mathematical brilliance to qualify for the Tophe deserves recognition as one of the greatest applied mathematicians before the modern era. He developed the Stomachion puzzle and solved a difficult enumeration problem involving it ; other famous gems include The Cattle-Problem.
None of these seems difficult today, but it does seem remarkable that they were all first achieved by the same man. Therefore, embracing more stringently that method of the Hindus, and taking stricter pains in its study, while adding certain things from my own understanding and inserting also certain things from the niceties of Euclid's geometric art, I have striven to compose this book in its entirety as understandably as I could, Others claim these were first seen years earlier in Chang Tshang's Chinese text and were implicit in what survives of earlier Hindu works, but Brahmagupta's text discussed them lucidly.
Tusi's writings influenced European mathematicians including Wallis; his revisions of the Ptolemaic model led him to the Tusi-couple, a special case of trochoids usually called Copernicus' Theorem, though historians have concluded Copernicus discovered this theorem by reading Tusi.
A translation also called a slide, a shift, or a glide, is a transformation that moves all points of a figure the same distance in the same direction. Ptolemy discussed and tabulated the 'equation of time,' documenting the irregular apparent motion of the Sun.
The geocentric models couldn't explain the observed changes in the brightness of Mars or Venus, but it was the phases of Venus, discovered by Galileo after the invention of the telescope, that finally led to general acceptance of heliocentrism.
Ancient China certainly developed mathematics, in fact the first known proof of the Pythagorean Theorem is found in a Chinese book Zhoubi Suanjing which might have been written about BC.
Eudoxus of Cnidus BC Greek domain Eudoxus journeyed widely for his education, despite that he was not wealthy, studying mathematics with Archytas in Tarentum, medicine with Philiston in Sicily, philosophy with Plato in Athens, continuing his mathematics study in Egypt, touring the Eastern Mediterranean with his own students and finally returned to Cnidus where he established himself as astronomer, physician, and ethicist.
There are ingenious solutions available with other tools. Al-Kindi, called The Arab Philosopher, can not be considered among the greatest of mathematicians, but was one of the most influential general scientists between Aristotle and da Vinci.
Archytas is sometimes called the "Father of Mathematical Mechanics. This problem had been considered by Eudoxus, Apollonius, and Hipparchus, who developed a very complicated geocentric model involving concentric spheres and epicyles.
He is often credited with inventing the names for parabola, hyperbola and ellipse; but these shapes were previously described by Menaechmus, and their names may also predate Apollonius.
Hippocrates of Chios ca BC Greek domain Hippocrates no known relation to Hippocrates of Cos, the famous physician wrote his own Elements more than a century before Euclid.13 In the diagram below, which single transformation was used to map triangle A onto triangle B?
