Chronology of ancient Greek mathematicians - Wikipedia

The Pythagorean Theorem has many proofs. One of the most famous was that of Euclid, the Greek mathematician who was born around 300 B.C. Pythagoras also developed a method of tuning instruments called the Pythagorean tuning. If Pythagoras committed any of his theorems or thoughts to paper, no one has yet found them, though there were forgeries.

The earliest mathematician to whom definite teachings can be ascribed was Lagadha, who apparently lived about 1300 BC and used geometry and elementary trigonometry for his astronomy. Baudhayana lived about 800 BC and also wrote on algebra and geometry; Yajnavalkya lived about the same time and is credited with the then-best approximation to π .
