Perhaps the Greatest Mathematician
 Georg Friedrich Bernhard Riemann (18261866) was perhaps the greatest mathematician in history.
 Leonhard Euler (April 15, 1707–September 18, 1783) was a devout Christian (Calvinist) who became the greatest mathematician of the eighteenth century and perhaps the most productive of all time.
 Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777–1855) was a German mathematician considered to be one of the greatest of all time, sometimes called the "the prince of mathematicians."
 Georg Cantor (18451918) was a RussianGerman mathematician who is considered one of the greatest ever because he created the field of Set Theory.
 AugustinLouis Cauchy (17891857) was a devout Catholic, and an extraordinary French mathematician, considered to be one of the top twenty of all time.
 Pierre Simon Laplace (b. BeaumontenAuge, March 23, 1749  d. Paris, March 5, 1827) was a French astronomer and mathematician. Laplace is considered one of the greatest scientists of all time.
 John von Neumann (19031957) was perhaps the most brilliant man of the 20th century, based on his remarkable achievements and impressions by other smart people who knew him.
 Amalie[sic!] Noether (18821935) was a German mathematician who contributed to abstract algebra and theoretical physics. Albert Einstein described her as the most important woman in the history of mathematics.
I prefer "Riemann was one of the most influential mathematicians in history" over "Riemann was perhaps the greatest mathematician in history": while Riemann certainly was one of the greatest mathematicians of all time, many would argue that Gauss or Euler deserve to be called the greatest.
