Diophantus

[diyofantus]

(c.200--299)

Greek mathematician, who lived in Alexandria c.275. Of his three known works, only six books of Arithmetica, the earliest extant treatise on algebra, have survived. His name was later given to that part of algebra which treats of the finding of particular rational values for general expressions under a surd form (Diophantine analysis).
