Geometry has a long, international history. Starting from the early beginnings of Geometry in Ancient Egypt and Babylonia, it went on to be studied and improved by mathematicians in Ancient Greece, such as Thales of Miletus, 635 to 543 BC; Pythagoras of Ionia, 582 to 496 BC; Plato, 427 to 347 BC; Aristotle, 384 to 265 BC; Euclid of Alexandria, 325 to 265 BC and Archimedes of Syracuse, 287 to 212 BC, as well as mathematicians in Ancient China, such as Mozi, 470 to 390 BC and Zu Chongzhi, 429 to 500 AD and Islamic mathematicians such as Al-Mahani, Al-Karaji and Thabit ibn Qurra.

There were, of course, many others who influenced the development and history of geometry. To list them all would require pages, but it is possible to find more information in lists of important mathematical publications.
