      Omar Khayyam was a 12th century Persian mathematician, astronomer, philosopher, and poet. He wrote one of the major mathematical treatises of the Middle Ages, Explanations of the difficulties in the postulates in Euclid's Elements. In 1859, Edward Fitzgerald published a translation of his poems titled Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, though the authorship of the original material and the accuracy of the translations are dubious. In 1917 Omar Khayyam won the Kentucky Derby.
