Chuquet, Nicolas


Fifteenth-century French mathematician.

In his treatise on arithmetic and algebra Triparty en la science des nombres, which was written in 1484 and published in Rome in 1881, Chuquet introduced negative and zero exponents. Chuquet’s notation is close to modern usage (seeMATHEMATICAL SYMBOLS).
