Hellenica World


Jan Jansz de Jonge Stampioen (1610, Rotterdam - ca. 1690, The Hague) was a Dutch mathematician famous for his published work on spherical trigonometry. In 1638 he moved to The Hague to become tutor of William II, Prince of Orange. In 1644 he was employed to tutor Christiaan Huygens in mathematics. In 1689, he was a member of a panel set up to adjudicate a proposed solution to the longitude problem. His actual date of death is nothing more than a guess based on the last fact.
