## Who is the father of geometry?

Euclid, The Father of Geometry.

## Who is famously known as the father of geometry?

Euclid. 300 BC, also known as Euclid of Alexandria, is often referred to as the Father of Geometry. He was a Greek mathematician, and is believed to have been active in Alexandria during the reign of Ptolemy I (323 BC–283 BC). His Elements is the most successful textbook in the history of mathematics.

## Who discovered modern geometry?

In tribute to John Casey, founder of modern geometry.

## Who invented geometry in India?

But Indian mathematician Bhāskara had already discovered many of Leibniz’s ideas over 500 years earlier. Bhāskara, also made major contributions to algebra, arithmetic, geometry and trigonometry.

## Who is called Father of trigonometry?

The first known table of chords was produced by the Greek mathematician Hipparchus in about 140 BC. Although these tables have not survived, it is claimed that twelve books of tables of chords were written by Hipparchus. This makes Hipparchus the founder of trigonometry.

## Who discovered hyperbolic geometry?

The first published works expounding the existence of hyperbolic and other non-Euclidean geometries are those of a Russian mathematician, Nikolay Ivanovich Lobachevsky, who wrote on the subject in 1829, and, independently, the Hungarian mathematicians Farkas and János Bolyai, father and son, in 1831.

## Who found zero?

The first recorded zero appeared in Mesopotamia around 3 B.C. The Mayans invented it independently circa 4 A.D. It was later devised in India in the mid-fifth century, spread to Cambodia near the end of the seventh century, and into China and the Islamic countries at the end of the eighth.

## Where was geometry first discovered?

The earliest recorded beginnings of geometry can be traced to early peoples, who discovered obtuse triangles in the ancient Indus Valley (see Harappan mathematics), and ancient Babylonia (see Babylonian mathematics) from around 3000 BC.

## Who invented algebra?

Al-Khwarizmi: The Father of Algebra.

## Who invented analytic geometry?

About 1630 the French mathematicians Pierre de Fermat and René Descartes independently realized that algebra was a tool of wondrous power in geometry and invented what is now known as analytic geometry.

## Is India good in math?

It’s widely believed that Indians are really good at math. Even the late Stephen Hawking agreed. New research, however, shows this may not be entirely true. The kids included in the analysis were enrolled from class 6 to class 10 across over 70 Indian cities.

## Who is known as Queen of mathematics?

Carl Friedrich Gauss one of the greatest mathematicians, is said to have claimed: “Mathematics is the queen of the sciences and number theory is the queen of mathematics.” The properties of primes play a crucial part in number theory.

## Who is great mathematicians of India?

Srinivasa Ramanujan: India’s greatest mathematician.
