Etymology[edit]

Probably via English algorithm, from Medieval Latin algorismus, a transliteration of Arabic الخوارزمي (al-Khowārizmī) ("native of Khowarizm"), surname of the well-known Persian mathematician Muhammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī who lived during the ninth century and introduced sophisticated mathematics to the West (particularly algebra). It was also influenced by Greek (ἀριθμός, arithmos) 'number' due to a later mistaken connection.
