FrancËois VieÁte:
published Introduction to the Analytic Art, one of the earliest texts to champion the use of Latin letters to represent numbers to solve problems algebraically. In an effort to show the power of algebra, VieÁte included algebraic solutions to a number of interesting problems that were mentioned but not solved by Diophantus in the Arithmetica.
