- And the guy on the left? That’s Al Khorezme, the most famous medieval mathematician from Uzbekistan. We use his name every time we refer to an algorism. That’s just a corruption of his name. His books on maths showed strategies for solving problems. They were translated into Latin and then used widely throughout Europe. Gradually his name became synonymous with the strategy. This statue is from Khiva, and it is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
