Often, to completely understand the importance of a mathematical theory, it's essential to know about the person who developed it. This category is where all questions about historically significant mathematicians should be asked.

He showed us about gravity, giving a huge boost to the scienceof astronomy. . ++++ . He also invented (or discovered?) the profoundly important fieldof Calculus - though others argue the credit belongs to the Germanmathematician Leibnitz. Generally now though, both men arecredited, as they...
They're actually many but I'll just mention 5 for eachnationalities. 1. BRITISH MATHEMATICIANS * John Adair * John Craig * James Gregory (or James Gregorie) * William Jones * Thomas Rudd 2. ENGLISH MATHEMATICIANS * Thomas Allen * Robert Anderson * John Babington * Robert Wood * Isaac Newton 3...
He didn't invent, but rather used the word, "al-jabr," which means "restoration" in Arabic, to describe his method of defining an unknown quantity as a variable and then manipulating it within an equation to arrive at its value. In other words, "al-jabr" means to perform an algebraic process, hence...
Evariste Galois worked on quadratics when he was a teenager. He wasable to establish the means to solve quadratics using radicals andlaid the ground work for what became Galois theory. Unfortunately,he died when he was only 20 years old during a duel.

Leonhard Euler was a Swiss mathematician
his death was unspecified
Ferdinand von Lindemann, along with his colleague Karl Weierstrass
Al-jabr - the Arabic phrase we Anglicise to Algebra. He didn'tinvent the word itself, but the use of it.
Yes. Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) was a mathematician, physicist,inventor, and philosopher. He was one of the earliest to studybinomial coefficients and the laws of probability. He created theearliest hand-powered calculating machines. Pascal's Law (pressuredistribution) is a result of his study of...
Thales(known for geometry theorems), Pythagoras(known forPythagorean theorem), Leonardo Pisano Bigollo(known for fibonacci),and there are alot more.
Nikolaus Kopernikus was a Renaissance mathematician and astronomerwho formulated a model of the universe that placed the Sun ratherthan the Earth at the center of the universe.The publication ofthis model in his book De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On theRevolutions of the Celestial Spheres)
Newton only thought of the concept of gravity*, put a value toit and divided some laws to do with it. Gravity is still unproven,there is no evidence to prove its existence. . *I'm not sure if this is true but he supposedly thought ofgravity because he was sat under a tree and an apple fell on...

Rene Descartes was important even dubbed "the father of modern philosophy", but it was Jaque Chirac who coined the term.
Hippocrates based his medical practice on observations and on thestudy of the human body. He held the belief that illness had aphysical and a rational explanation and his more than 70 booksdescribed in a scientific manner, many diseases and their treatmentafter detailed observation.
His health is not very good, as Descartes has been dead forhundreds of years.
Obviously. Otherwise she wouldn't have become one of the greatest math geniuses ever.

Sonarus writes that Hippocrates acquiredknowledge of medicine from his grandfather and father...
In general, the Laplace operator in n dimensions is ∇ 2 = (∂/∂ x 1 ) 2 + (∂/∂ x 2 ) 2 + ... + (∂/∂ x n ) 2 , and the eigenfunctions are the solutions f ( x 1 , x 2 , ..., x n ) of the partial differential equation: ∇ 2 f = - λ f , ...
René Descartes believed that every human us a "noble savage" when in the state of nature.
No didn't have one because he was to buisy workin on the street lights and he was realy that interested in writting secerts in addition he didn't have any realy
Primarily he was an artist. However, his work does depend a lot on mathematics.
Archimedes inventions changed the world because for example, we wouldn't be able to ship military cargo, or have Cruise ships due to this man. This man found out buoyancy which is covered in Archimedes principal. Have you ever wondered how big cargo ships float float? They float because the volume...
Pierre Simon Laplace died on March 5, 1827.
Perhaps it is either Joseph Fourier or Pierre-Simon Laplace.

...Yes to an extent, but when we look at the definition of Deists they believe in a form of theological rationalism that believes in God on the basis of reason without reference to revelation . It's debatable of course , but really in context to Leibniz's postulations on "monads" , you'd be more...
He proved Fermat's Last Theorem. Actually he proved the Taniyama-Shimura-Weil conjecture and this proved the theorem.
Richard Swinburne, a professor of philosophy at Oxford University, invoked probability theory to support the belief that Jesus was resurrected from the dead. For his formula to work, he had to assume that the gospel accounts of the crucifixion were genuine and accurately reported. If Swinburne's...
