Fibonacci

According to Wikipedia, “Fibonacci is best known to the modern world for the spreading of the Hindu–Arabic numeral system in Europe.”

Heh.

Now, I think that development is awesome–apparently it facilitated mathematical advances, since it’s hard to do math with Roman numerals!–but I’m pretty sure that’s not what he’s best known for. :)
