Nasir al-Din al-Tusi left behind a great legacy as well. Tusi is widely regarded as one of the greatest scientists of medieval Islam, since he is often considered the creator of trigonometry as a mathematical discipline in its own right.
In mathematics, al-Tusi pioneered spherical trigonometry and treated trigonometry as a new mathematical discipline. He developed six fundamental formulas for the solution of spherical right-angled triangles. He wrote on binomial coefficients, which Blaise Pascal later introduced.
