The history of geometry is one of the most varied of any field of mathematics. During the 19th century, there were over 12000 theorems published in just euclidean geometry. (see Max. Simon)
A few major names with more than 1 theorems to his credit; Apollonius of Perga R.C. Archibald A. Arnauld C.J. Brianchon H. Brocard (well over 500 theorems about 2 points, which are named for him) L. Carnot John Casey E. Catalan Giovanni Ceva (a major theorem with hundreds of consequences) M. Chasles
do you want more?
How much extra credit do we get for this list?
Michael Keyton St. Mark's School of Texas
