Famous mathematicians and their theorems are pronounced here.

René Descartes (1596 - 1650) was a French mathematician and philosopher who in order to unify the hitherto largely separate disciplines of algebra and geometry invented coordinate geometry (modern term: 'analytic geometry'). The Cartesian coordinate system is named after him ('Cartesian' /pronounced: kɑrˈtiʒən/ is the adjectival form of 'Descartes').
