*RB: Mathematicians noted *RB have biographies excerpted from W. W. Rouse Ball's A Short Account of the History of Mathematics: seventeenth and early eighteenth century mathematicians, under David Wilkins's History of Mathematics pages.

*MT: Mathematicians noted *MT have biographies in the Mathematical MacTutor History of Mathematics archive at the School of Mathematical and Compuational Sciences of the University of St Andrews. Includes more than 1000 biographies with major mathematicians listed alphabetically and chronologically, an index of topics, and a birthplace map.

*SB: Mathematicians noted *SB have entries in the Dictionary of Scientific Biography. 15 volumes. Edited by Charles Coulston Gillispie. Scribner, New York, 1970-1978, with later additions.

*W: Mathematicians noted *W have biographies compiled by Richard S.
