The Pythagorean theorem was, oddly enough, first postulated by a Greek named Pythagoras of Samos, in the 6th century BC or so. It basically described the relationship among the three sides of a triangle and the areas of the same. There is some thought that Babylonian mathematicians well before the time of Pythagoras knew of the relationship, but he's the guy who got his name on the theorem.
