## Perhaps the Greatest Mathematician

- Georg Friedrich
**Bernhard Riemann**(1826-1866) 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**(1845-1918) was a Russian-German mathematician who is considered one of the greatest ever because he created the field of Set Theory.**Augustin-Louis Cauchy**(1789-1857) was a devout Catholic, and an extraordinary French mathematician, considered to be one of the top twenty of all time.**Pierre Simon Laplace**(b. Beaumont-en-Auge, 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**(1903-1957) 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**(1882-1935) 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. --AugustO (talk) 08:25, 4 July 2018 (EDT)

* Georg Friedrich Bernhard Riemann (1826-1866) is considered the greatest modern mathematician,* That is as meaningful as

*Mozart is considered the greatest classical composer*: it is just a starting point for an endless debate. --AugustO (talk) 06:15, 23 July 2018 (EDT)
