Like his father before him, Frans van Schooten (1615-1660) taught mathematics at Leiden University, among others to Christiaan Huygens. He is most famous for popularizing the geometric principles of Ren�e Descartes, but also wrote treatises of his own. The Elzeviers' Latin edition of this book of mathematical exercises was used at universities throughout Europe. Van Schooten's efforts made Leiden the centre of a strong mathematical community in the seventeenth century.
