Arabic culture

السلام عليكم

As-salāmu ʿalaykum

For many centuries, Arabic was the commercial language of the world. Which explains why there exist many mathematical terms of Arab origin, for example Algebra. The Arab culture represented the centre of science and technology, therefore many discoveries and inventions took place in the Arab region. Persia and Moorish Spain were also a part of the greater Arab region and show a substantial influence of the same in the development of scientific discoveries, especially in the field of technological development.

Probably one of the most important Arab scholars, especially of Arab culture, is the Arab mathematician, Al-Biruni. Like Gauss, he was also interested in foreign languages and engaged intensively next to mathematics on subjects such as Astronomy and Geodesy. They had a lot of similarities and would have probably made a good team together.
