Iran has always been a cradle of science. In the field of mathematics, Kharazmi in 12th century created the logarithm table and developed algebra. His books were published in Latin under the name of “De jebra et almucabola”. Khayyam in the 11th -12thcentury wrote the principles of algebra, general methods for solving cubic equations and even some higher orders, geometry (the theory of proportions).His work contributed to the eventual development of non-Euclidean geometry. In physics Alhazen in the 10thcentury is considered the father of optics and Biruni (10-11th century) was the first scientist who formally proposed that the speed of light is finite.
Chemistry is another field filled with Persian pioneers.
Jaber Ibn Hayyan (Geber) in the 8th century is considered the father of many discoveries recorded in an encyclopedia for European chemists of the 18thcentury.
Even Tusi (13thcentury) stated a version of the law of conservation of mass claiming mass won’t disappear completely and only change forms. In Astronomy Biruni (10thcentury) wrote an astronomical encyclopedia about the possibility of earth rotating around the sun.
Abd al-Rahman al-Sufi (10thcentury) was the 1stto record a galaxy outside our own. It goes to show that Iran has never been short of thinkers and inventors and we can assure you will enter an environment of research and discovery.
