What Swiss mathematician is responsible for instituting the use of the symbol pi in mathematical notation?
Who is the Swiss mathematician and teacher that instituted the symbol for pi in mathematical notation?
---- The symbol for pi was used by the early English mathematicians William Oughtred (1574 -1660), Isaac Barrow (1630-1677), and David Gregory (1661-1701) to designate …the circumference , or periphery, of a circle. The first to use the symbol for the ratio of the circumference to the diameter was the English writer, William Jones, in a publication in 1706. The symbol was not generally used in this sense, however, until Euler (1707-1783) adopted it in 1737.
