Abu Al-Wafa Al-Buzjanî (940-998)
Abu Al-Wafa was an astronomer and the greatest mathematician of the tenth century, according to Kettanî. He wrote commentaries on Euclid, Diophantos and al-Khwarizmi (all lost); astronomical tables (Zîj al-Wadih) of which we possibly have a later adaptation; a practical arithmetic; "the complete book" (Kitâb al-Kâmil) and a book of applied geometry (Kitâb al- Handasa).
