He was a physicist, rather than a mathematician.

I nominate Euler. That is mainly for his formula eiπ + 1 = 0 which so succinctly brings together

  • the additive identity of numbers (0)
  • the multiplicative identity of numbers (1)
  • the two most important transcendental numbers (e and π),
  • and the basic element of complex mathematics (i).

In terms of mathematical beauty nothing else compares.
