Who is your favorite mathematician / scientist?

Which mathematician / scientist do you admire the most?

You can choose from the classic ones like Euclid, Gauss, Euler, Newton, Einstein, or from the modern-day versions like Andrew Wiles, Peter Higgs, Grigori Perelman, Zhang Yitang, etc.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

I 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.

I would beg to differ. I don't know about your geographical intelligence, but as for mathematic contributions you are wrong.

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.

Nikhil Pandya - 6 years 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. For those who don't know the story of Einstein and Besso, see here.

I am very much inspired by Nikola Tesla whose 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.

As brilliant an engineer as he was, I think he was a bit of a crackpot (http://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/2322/teslas-theory-of-gravity) when it came to physics.

Lots of them... Definitely Euler, Wiles and Perelman on your list. The others I admire as well but these three more so. I would also include Feynman, Schrodinger and Dirac.

There is no maths without zero we can see calculations based on zero in the book of aryabhatta Who invented zero?

It's almost impossible to imagine a world without zero. It's even crazier to think that people could do math for centuries without that concept!

In a similar vein, it's almost impossible to imagine a world without irrational numbers. Yet, during the time of Pythagoras, believing in the existence of irrational numbers can get you killed.
