Did he invent algebra or just wrote a book that introduced it to Europe?

John Stillwell in his book "Mathematics and Its History" says that what Muslims did was introduce algebra to the West, but being called "al-gebra" is a historic accident because they weren't the ones inventing it.

Algebra is usually considered to have been invented by al-Khwarizmi, a Persian mathematician, in a book whose title is the origin of the word "algebra". Al-Khwarizmi's name itself is also where the word "algorithm" comes from.

Basic mathematic algebra as in "2x+1 = 3" was developed by indian cultures and then moved into the arabic sphere (Note that also the chinese and the greek and probably lots of others already had ideas on this). It was then brought into the realm of Europe by a book written by al-Chwarizmi, and taken up by european scientists and thinkers.

Modern Algebra (such as linear Algebra) with the notions of Sets, Vector Spaces and the like has acutally only been around since the mid of the 19th century, and has been developed by mathematicians from all over the world.

Algebra was not named for the guy credited with its "invention", but for the publication in which he did so, "Al-Kit?b al-mukhta?ar f? h?s?b al-?abr wa’l-muq?bala", that is, "The Compendious Book on Calculation by Completion and Balancing". The "al-?abr" part of that ("completion") became the word "algebra".

It's hard to say who really came up with the ideas in the first place, but it is thought that Al-Khwarizmi (the author) was describing a combination of Arabic and Indian mathematical techniques as they were used in his time.
