Euclidean Geometry

Euclid was a Greek mathematician of the third century BC but little more is known in his life.  His name has become immortalised, however, through his Elements, his great work on elementary geometry in thirteen books.

It can be said that Euclid's name is synonymous with geometry and Euclidean geometry has certainly provided the basis for the teaching of that branch of mathematics for generations.  His definition of a line as "length without breath' would be hard to improve upon for its sheer precision.
