TOP 5 MATHEMATICIANS OF HISTORY
A completely objective ranking of the top 5 mathematicians of history. And with all due respect, no I did not forget about Newton....
- •Leonhard Euler*The Master of us All*
- •Carl Gauss*The Prince of Mathematics*
- •ArchimedesOriginated the important tradition of mathematicians making great discoveries while bathing.
- •Alexander GrothendieckPossibly influenced the last half of 20th century mathematics more than anyone else. Also just a fascinating dude. I'm still waiting for part 3 of Scharlau's biography to be translated into English.
- •EuclidIt's weird to imagine how different mathematics would look like if *Elements* had never happened.
