Diophantus of Alexandria: a Text and its History Norbert Schappacher April 2005 Abstract. Diophantuss Arithmetica is one of the most inuential Diophantus and his works have also influenced Arab mathematics and were of great fame among Arab mathematicians. Diophantus' work created a foundation for work on algebra and in fact much of advanced mathematics is based on algebra. Of later Greek mathematicians, especially noteworthy is Diophantus of Alexandria (flourished c.
250), author of Arithmetica. This book features a host of problems, the most significant of which have come to be called Diophantine equations. These are equations whose solutions. What little is known of Diophantuss life is circumstantial. Diophantus was a Hellenistic Greek (or possibly Egyptian, Jewish or even Chaldean) mathematician who lived in Alexandria during the 3rd Century CE.
