Apollonius of Perga (c. 262190 B. C. ) known as 'The Great Geometer' , great influence on the development of mathematics , famous book Conics introduced terms such as parabola , ellipse and hyperbola. wwwgroups.dcs.stand.ac.uk/~history/Mathematicians/Apollonius.html 

Desargues  Girard Desargues (15911661) Founder of projective geometry , his work centred on the theory of conic sections and perspective. wwwgroups.dcs.stand.ac.uk/~history/Mathematicians/Desargues.html 

Heron of Alexandria (ca. 75 AD) Greek mathematician who was mainly interested in practical studies in mechanics and engineering , best known for Heron's Formula scienceworld.wolfram.com/biography/Heron.html 

Klein, Felix (18491925) Plücker's assistant at Bonn who studied Analytic Geometry , describing geometry as the study of properties of figures which remain invariant under a Group of Transformations. He systemized NonEuclidean Geometry. scienceworld.wolfram.com/biography/KleinFelix.html 

Monge, Gaspard  Conte de Péluse (17461818) The father of differential geometry , he devised a system called Geometrie descriptive , now known as orthographic projection , the graphical method used in modern mechanical drawing. wwwgroups.dcs.stand.ac.uk/~history/Mathematicians/Monge.html 

Riemann, Georg Friedrich Bernhard (18261866) Theory of functions , nonEuclidian geometry , relativity theory , Famous for the Riemann hypothesis about the behavior of zeros of the Riemann zeta function , which he showed determines the distribution of prime numbers. turnbull.dcs.stand.ac.uk/history/Mathematicians/Riemann.html 

Steiner, Jakob (17961863) Was one of the greatest contributors to projective geometry. turnbull.dcs.stand.ac.uk/history/Mathematicians/Steiner.html
