TopNewestI must say, unfortunately, I have not researched many mathematicians/scientists enough to give an honest opinion of them. I think they are all great enough just for loving math and the logical world. Some tops though:

1) Calvin L

2) Peter T

3) The rest of the Brilliant team (which really encompasses and ties with #1 and #2, just that those two get mentioned a lot. Seriously, thank you unnamed people.)

4) The whole Brilliant community of users

5) Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, because I read a biography about him and he has a funny first name. – Justin Wong · 3 years, 9 months ago

I assure you my contributions to science(geology) are nearly irrelevant and my contributions to mathematics non-existent. We are flattered nontheless :)Log in to reply

You, through Brilliant, have inspired countless individuals, most notably youths, who are now ready to tackle the field of mathematics themselves. You have helped start a website that reaches not only thousands today but potentially thousands more in the future. You have the privilege of talking to the minds of tomorrow. You have the privilege of vicariously experiencing hundreds of discoveries that We will make. You are among the most admired people today for what you've done, no matter how indirectly you've done it.

John von Neumann without a doubt for me.

One of the most impactful and prolific geniuses of our time.

He made major contributions to a number of fields, including mathematics (foundations of mathematics, functional analysis, ergodic theory, geometry, topology, and numerical analysis), physics (quantum mechanics, hydrodynamics, and fluid dynamics), economics (game theory), computer science (Von Neumann architecture, linear programming, self-replicating machines, stochastic computing), and statistics. – Angel Leon · 3 years, 9 months ago

That's one part, yes. The other is that, imho, mathematical or scientific genius is a gift and outside anyone's control. How people use their gifts and live their life is what I feel is important. Hence Besso, who never got the credit he deserved, remained humble and not bitter towards his friend, Einstein, and stayed a "good man" with his wife and family.

I am very much inspired by

Nikola Teslawhose many of the great discoveries most people don't know about. He invented the "Alternating Current". He was the one who invented Radar, Remote control, Neon lightning, modern electic motor, wireless communications and many many more things but never got the credit. He even built a tower which could provide free wireless energy to the whole Earth but it was demolished before its completion, due to lack of funding and no profit.To know about more of his inventions and discoveries, you can go to this link - http://theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla – Prakkash Manohar · 3 years, 9 months ago
