I'm researching Liu Hui who lived circa 220 AD to 260 AD. He independently solved many challenging mathematical problems, and was an amazing mathematician previously unknown to me. I came across this line from the Wikipedia page about him:
"Although translated into English long beforehand, Liu's work was translated into French by Guo Shuchun, a professor from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, who began in 1985 and took twenty years to complete his translation."
I'm curious from a standpoint of when would his works definitively begin influencing Western math and science?
I can find little on the dates of an original translation; in fact, the only mention of translation dates I found at all was on the Wikipedia page I referenced.
