Although algebra has many roots and contributors and in its modern form it is a long way from its mesopotamian, egyptian and greek origins, its essence is most likely found in the ancient greek theories of quadratic equasions in geometrical form and it is, therefore, euclid who seems to get the credit for being its father.
