    al-Khwarizmi. c. c. Arab Mathematician and Astronomer. Although al-Khwarizmi was an early Arab proponent of the use of Hindu numerals—which were eventually adopted so widely throughout the Middle East that they came to be known as Arabic numerals—his advocacy in this area had its greatest impact when his books were translated for mathematicians in Western Europe. Al-Khwarizmi wrote about the practical use of decimals and also clarified and popularized a method for solving certain mathematical problems. He explained the method in his work The Book of Restoring and Balancing. The term al-jabr in its Arabic title, Kitab al-jabr wa’l-muqabala, is .

The most well known Islamic mathematician was al-Khwarizimi, who masterminded the study of algebra, which became a standard in European universities for centuries. This book introduced to Europe the Hindu numerals 0 through 9, the word zero, the notion of an algorithm (named after the Persian scholar Abu 'Abd Allah Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi (ca. )), and the subject of algebra, which comes from the title of al-Khwarizmi's book, {\em Hisab Al-Jabr wal Mugabalah} ({\em Book of Calculations.

    Mohammed ben Musa (cc) was a Persian mathematician and astronomer. The word 'algebra' derives from his Compendious Book on Calculation by Completion and Balancing, which introduced modern algebraic methods. First published in , this translation from Arabic into English was.   This book follows the development of classical mathematics and the relation between work done in the Arab and Islamic worlds and that undertaken by the likes of Descartes and Fermat. ‘Early modern,’ mathematics is a term widely used to refer to the mathematics which developed in the West during the sixteenth and seventeenth century.

Al-Khwārizmī, in full Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī, (born c. —died c. ), Muslim mathematician and astronomer whose major works introduced Hindu-Arabic numerals and the concepts of algebra into European mathematics. Latinized versions of his name and of his most famous book title live on in the terms algorithm and algebra.

Al-Khwarizmi is arguably the most important mathematician of the Middle Ages. He developed two distinct branches of mathematics, both of which owe their name to him: algebra and algorithms. Al-Khwarizmi book This carefully crafted biography shines a long-overdue light on these achievements, documents Khwarizmi's contributions to geography and astronomy, and /5(2).

Al-Khwarizmi was known for the book he wrote about algebra, Compendious Book on Calculation by Completion and Balancing. This book was later titled the Hindu Art of Reckoning.

With his books, al-Khwarizmi authored astronomical tables- tables designed to calculate the position of planets or : c. Al-Khwarizmi is arguably the most important mathematician of the Middle Ages.

He developed two distinct branches of mathematics, both of which owe their name to him: algebra and algorithms. This carefully crafted biography shines a long-overdue light on these achievements, documents Khwarizmi's contributions to geography and astronomy, and paints a picture of life in the ninth-century Muslim 4/5(3).

Al-Khwarizmi was known for the book he wrote about algebra, Compendious Book on Calculation by Completion and Balancing. He also wrote a book which taught the Western world about Hindu numerals and how to use them.

This book was later titled the Hindu Art of : c. Al Khwarizmi was a nineteenth century eminent and multi-faceted Persian mathematician, geographer and astronomer. In the House of Wisdom of Baghdad he was a scholar. His works was brought to Western World through Latin translation that had been conducted in the 12th century.

The work on Arabic numerals highlights the decimal positional number system. Al-Khwarizmi’s Algebra (Kitab al-Jabr wa-al-muqabala), written aroundwas the first scientific text in history to systematically present algebra as a mathematical discipline that is independent of geometry and Rashed has produced the first Arabic critical edition of Al-Khwarizmi’s work, containing an annotated translation into English, an introductory essay, and 5/5(2).

Al-Khwarizmi emphasised that he wrote his algebra book to serve the practical needs of the people concerning the matters of inheritance, legacies, partition, law suits and commerce.

He considered his work as worship to God. Modern statue of al-Khwarizmi at Khiva. Al-Khwarizmi performed detailed calculations of the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets, and did a number of eclipse calculations.

In addition to an important treatise on Astronomy, Al-Khwarizmi wrote a book on astronomical tables, which were also translated into European languages and, later, into Chinese. GEOGRAPHY (14). Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī (Persian: Muḥammad Khwārizmī محمد بن موسى خوارزمی ‎; c.

Al-Khwarizmi was also known as Abu Ja'far Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi. He was known for writing major works on astronomy and mathematics that introduced Hindu-Arabic numerals and the idea of algebra to European scholars. The Latinized version of his name gave us the term "algorithm," and the title of his most famous and important work gave us the word "algebra.".

Al-Khwarizmi wrote numerous books that played important roles in arithematic and algebra. Al-Khwarizmi's Kitab al-mukhtasar fi hisab al-jabr wal-muqabala (The Compendious Book on Calculation by Completion and Balancing) was a pioneering piece of work.
