It is no doubt that the world today is greatly indebted to the contributions made by Indian mathematicians. One of the most important contribution made by them was the introduction of decimal system as well as the invention of zero. Here are some the famous Indian mathematicians dating back from Indus Valley civilization and Vedas to Modern times.
There is a significant contribution made by Ancient Greeks to the field mathematicians from fundamentals of geometry to the idea of formal proof. Greek mathematician also contributed importantly to ideas on number theory, mathematical analysis, applied mathematics, and, at times, approached close to integral calculus. Here are some of Famous Greek Mathematicians.
Although there is no doubt that men often excel in mathematically challenging fields, there has been little research to support the fact that women cannot excel in them too. The following 10 famous females who have proved that gender differences in stereotypically male-oriented subjects like math are but only a matter of preference not ability.
“The colour of the skin is in no way connected with strength of the mind or intellectual powers.” -Benjamin Banneker
The following names represent those famous black mathematicians who beat the odds against their discrimination and achieved excellence in the field of mathematics.
The legacy of mathematics in Switzerland is most reflected in the works of Euler and the Bernoulli family who were the ultimate math family in Europe during the 17th and 18th centuries. The following list aims to chronologically identify 10 of the most famous Swiss mathematicians and their contributions to the field.
We may not be conscious of it but before paying tribute to legendary doctors, engineers and businessmen, we have the mathematicians to thank for laying down the taken-for-granted concepts given by influential mathematicians over the course of centuries. Mathematics has played a crucial role in developing the world as we know it today and these efforts must not go unrecognized. Here are 10 famous French mathematicians along with their accomplishments in this colossal field.
