Ab Sahl Wayjan ibn Rustam al-Q h (al-K h ) was a Persian mathematician, physicist and astronomer. Quhi was from Kuh (or Quh), an area in Tabaristan, and flourished in Baghdad in the 10th century. He is considered one of the greatest Muslim geometers. Many mathematical and astronomical writings are ascribed to him. He was the leader of the astronomers working in 988 AD at the observatory built by the Buwayhid Sharaf al-Dawla. He devoted his attention to those Archimedean and Apollonian problems leading to equations higher than the second degree. He solved some of them and discussed the conditions of solvability.show more
