The timeline starts at the Rhind Mathematical Papyrus published in Ancient Egypt circa 1650 BC and stretches up to the modern day. It includes many publications in mathematics that revolutionised our understanding of the subject such as Isaac Newton’s famous Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, which also had profound implications for the study of Physics.

Most of these related timelines have been created directly from categories. In the very near future we will be able to make a single timeline showing the thousands of mathematicians in Wikipedia. Until then we can make timelines filtered by nationality, field of study or the century they were alive. If you would like to create a timeline from one the categories available in Wikipedia first take a look at this page that shows you How to make timelines from Wikipedia categories. Then choose the category you want to use to create a timeline from either Mathematicians by field, Mathematicians by nationality or Mathematicians by century.
