My vote to Sir Isaac newton

- 3 years, 1 month ago

I feel we are not yet experienced enough to choose and appreciate mathematicians.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

You are right! I agree. We don't know the contributions of all mathematicians so well that we can choose one.

It's like if you ask a 5th grader about his favourite mathematician, he would probably say Pythagoras.

But still, this is not the "Best Mathematician Survey", this is the "Favourite Mathematician Survey".

Voted for Sir Gauss

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Great ! Me too

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Even quantum mechanics makes use of gausian integrals. Gauss the best.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Guess what's the best? It Gauss!

- 3 years, 1 month ago

$$e^{i\pi} + 1 = 0$$. It is Leonhard Euler for me.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

I was waiting for someone to vote for him. Now Euler has 8 votes.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Fermat beacuse of Fermat's Last Theorem and his method of Infinite Descent.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Great Choice! Thanks for Voting!

- 3 years, 1 month ago

I don't get why this comment was downvoted two times! There's been a lot of nonsensical downvoting going on nowadays.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Sir Isaac Newton for inventing Calculus (my favourite topic)!

- 3 years, 1 month ago

You can vote here !

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Good Choice!

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Thanks!

But I voted for Srinivasa Ramanujan because reasons.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

People tend to vote for him.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Did it 3 times! =D

- 3 years ago

Voting for some one does not mean that one has no respect for others. Any one getting less votes does not mean again that he is not respected. There are many factors that decided favorite. And it is different for each voter. Theoretically one getting no vote can be the the second choice of all voters ! Just to put thing in balanced perspective.

Reimann

I admire every one of them but i gave my vote to Srinivasan Ramanujan.After all he is The man who knew infinity

- 3 years, 1 month ago

What does that mean?

The man who knew infinity

That sounds good! Can you explain why you are calling him "The man who knew infinity"?

- 3 years, 1 month ago

His biography is named as The man who knew infinity. Probably because of his contributions in infinite series.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Were you able to vote 4 times?

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Didnt try

- 3 years, 1 month ago

My vote to Gau$$\beta$$.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

He is the best.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

I see what you did there

- 10 months ago

Whom did you vote for??

I voted for Sir Ramanujan.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Me too!

Thanks for voting!

- 3 years, 1 month ago

According to the Results so far, No one seems to like the Geom King , Euclid.(Sorry Nihar)

My vote goes to Sir Ramanujan!

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Even Nihar has not voted for Euclid, I am waiting for someone to do that. :((

- 3 years, 1 month ago

I know this is not fair but i voted thrice

- 3 years, 1 month ago

But how is it possible? Did you use 3 different devices?

- 3 years, 1 month ago

No. After some time when i first voted i opened the site to see the results then i tried againto vote and my vote was registered

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Let's just keep our hopes high :P

- 3 years, 1 month ago

@Archit Boobna Can you share with us how did you make it?

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Just type strawpoll.me. It is free for anyone to create surveys. It is a website.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

All are great personalities , but my single choice goes to "The Ramanujan Sir"

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Aryabhatta, he was one of the developers of ancient Mathematics

- 3 years, 1 month ago

It's great to see people still respecting scientists of ancient times, who had formed the base of Mathematics.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Thank you

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Euler and Ramanujan. It was a difficult choice but I chose for the former because whichever article I read, it most probably has one name for sure.

- 3 years ago

Don't hate me but I love Fermat.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

My favorite mathematician is Paul Erdos but here I voted Leonhard Euler

- 3 years, 1 month ago

I voted for "King of mathematics"

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Who?

- 3 years, 1 month ago

It is like if Gauss is the prince of mathematics then Euler is the king.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

I wanted to vote Gauss but I voted for Ramanujan since $$1729$$ is my favorite. :)

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Srinivasa Ramanujam FTW!!

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Euler , my favorite! :)

- 3 years, 1 month ago

My choice is Aryabhatta . Proud to be an Indian (:

- 3 years ago

I think one more name should also be included Terrence Tau.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

That is a good idea, but I had already put too many names and had still a few left in my mind. Sorry for that. :(

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Gauss, The complex Calculus Analysis's creater.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

What's with the down votes. The people who did this think they are better than gauss.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

We're expecting the results of the OPC today, Rajdeep.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Yes, I was just checking the solutions. Till now U have solved maximum.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Will there be a note for the results?

- 3 years, 1 month ago

I am back!

- 3 years, 1 month ago

He is no.3 now.

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Whom do you think will win?

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Euler

- 3 years, 1 month ago

Fibonacci for making recursions so much more fun!
