Antoine de Laloubère
Antoine de Laloubère (1600–1664), a Jesuit, born in Languedoc, is chiefly known for an incorrect solution of Pascal's problems on the cycloid, which he gave in 1660, but he has a better claim to distinction in having been the first mathematician to study the properties of the helix.
De Laloubère died at Toulouse.
