File Name: famous mathematicians and their contributions in math .zip
This is a chronological list of some of the most important mathematicians in history and their major achievments, as well as some very early achievements in mathematics for which individual contributions can not be acknowledged.
The field of statistics has deep roots that trace back centuries. It has naturally evolved over time, due in large part to the following individuals who made significant progress in shaping it. While this list of great statisticians is certainly not exhaustive, it is an introduction to those whose contributions to statistics greatly influence how we manage data today. Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss was a German mathematical prodigy who laid much of the groundwork for statistics, particularly given his work in probability theory. He may be best known for the method of least squares managing errors in observations. Florence Nightingale traveled as a nurse to a hospital during the Crimean War in
It's one of those things that most people either love or hate. Those who fall on the hate side of things might still have nightmares of showing up for a high school math test unprepared, even years after graduation. Math is, by nature, an abstract subject, and it can be hard to wrap your head around it if you don't have a good teacher to guide you. But even if you don't count yourself a fan of mathematics, it's hard to argue that it hasn't been a vital factor in our rapid evolution as a society. We reached the moon because of math. Math allowed us to tease out the secrets of DNA, create and transmit electricity over hundreds of miles to power our homes and offices, and gave rise to computers and all that they do for the world.
His Ars conjectandi () was an important contribution to probability theory. Bernoulli His mathematical work was mainly in analysis, measure theory, and.
In many periods of history, women have been discouraged from applying their minds to mathematics—but a few persevered. The world-altering contributions of these 15 notable female mathematicians include making hospitals safer, laying the groundwork for the computer, and advancing space flight. Hypatia c.
His Elements is one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics , serving as the main textbook for teaching mathematics especially geometry from the time of its publication until the late 19th or early 20th century. Euclid also wrote works on perspective , conic sections , spherical geometry , number theory , and mathematical rigour. Very few original references to Euclid survive, so little is known about his life. He was likely born c. He is mentioned by name, though rarely, by other Greek mathematicians from Archimedes c.
