Sun Tzu or Sunzi (孫子, Sūnzǐ, lit. "Master Sun") was a Chinese mathematician who lived some time between the 3rd and the 5th century during the Wei or Jin dynasty. Interested in astronomy and trying to develop a calendar, he investigated Diophantine equations. He is known for his authorship of The Mathematical Classic of Sunzi, which contains the earliest known example of the Chinese remainder theorem.
