We know Geometry is one of the most ancient branches of mathematics. The big step forward in geometry after the Greeks, was the development of a new method called Co-ordinate geometry or Analytical geometry. Modern analytical geometry is also called "Cartesian" after the name of Rene Decartes (1596-1665). But the fundamental principles and methods were already discovered by Pierre de Fermat(1601-1665). Unfortunately, Fermats treatise on the subject entitled "Ad locus planos et so lidos Isagoge"(Introduction to plane and solid loci) was published only published posthumously in 1679. So Decartes came to be regarded as the unique inventor of the analytical geometry.
In co-ordinate geometry, we enlist the services of Algebra in aid of Geometry.
