Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi was a Persian mathematician, astronomer, astrologer geographer and a scholar in the House of Wisdom in Baghdad. Al-Khwarizmi developed the concept of the algorithm in mathematics (which is a reason for his being called the grandfather of computer. We know few details of Abu Ja'far Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi's life. One unfortunate effect of this lack of knowledge seems to be the temptation to make. Abū ʿAbdallāh Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī (Arabic: عَبْدَالله مُحَمَّد بِن مُوسَى اَلْخْوَارِزْمِي ), earlier transliterated as Algoritmi or Algaurizin, (c.

Abu Ja'far Muhammad ibn Musa Al-Khwarizmi

Algebra is a compilation of rules, together with demonstrations, for finding solutions of linear and quadratic equations based on intuitive geometric arguments, rather than the biografi al khawarizmi notation now associated with the subject.

He was quite aware of the existence of two roots of the quadratic equation, though he cared for positive, real roots only [16].


Its biografi al khawarizmi part discusses the equations of the first and second degrees. All his proposed problems can be reduced to one of the six standard forms. He gives rules for the solution of each of the six forms and explains with examples biografi al khawarizmi to reduce any given problem to one of these standard forms [17].

The second part of the book biografi al khawarizmi with practical mensuration by giving rules for finding the area of various plane figures including the circle, and for finding the volume of a number of biografi al khawarizmi including cones and pyramids.

The third and longest part concerns legacies as well as inheritance. It consists entirely of solutions to problems which arise out of legacies. Incipit of a Latin manuscript of the tradition of algebraic and arithmetic books known as Algorismus: Pennsylvania University, Lawrence J.

Schoenberg Collection, Manuscript Number: LJSfolios. Illuminated biografi al khawarizmi a member of the Albertini family of Nola, Italy, in Front cover of Al-Khwarizmi: The mathematical works of al-Khwarizmi were used in European universities up to the 17th century.

He is, in the words of 'Ali 'Abdullah Al-Daffa [18]the founder of algebra and had transformed the concept of a number from its earlier arithmetic character as a fixed quantity into that of variable element in an equation. He also found a method to solve biografi al khawarizmi equations of the first and second degree in one unknown by both algebraic and geometric means [19].

He also wrote on mechanical devices like the astrolabe and sundial. When, in the 12th century, his works spread to Europe through Latin translations, it had a profound impact on the biografi al khawarizmi of mathematics in Europe.

He introduced Arabic numerals into the Latin West, based on a place-value decimal system developed from Indian sources.

In his article [ 1 ] G J Toomer, with naive confidence, constructed an entire fantasy on the error which cannot be denied the merit of making amusing biografi al khawarizmi.

This is not the last disagreement that we shall meet in describing the life and work of al-Khwarizmi. However before we look at the few facts about his life that are known for certain, we should take a moment to set the scene for the cultural and scientific background in which biografi al khawarizmi worked.

Contribution of Al-Khwarizmi to Mathematics and Geography | Muslim Heritage

Harun al-Rashid became the fifth Caliph of the Abbasid dynasty on 14 Septemberabout the time that al-Khwarizmi was born. Harun ruled, from his court in the capital city of Baghdad, over the Islam empire which stretched from the Mediterranean to India.

He brought culture biografi al khawarizmi his court and tried to establish the intellectual biografi al khawarizmi which at that time were not flourishing in the Arabic world.

He had two sons, the eldest was al-Amin while the younger was al-Mamun. Harun died in and there was an armed conflict between the brothers. Al-Mamun won the armed struggle and al-Amin was defeated and killed in
