# Leonhard Euler

- 15 April 1707 - 18 September 1783

**Leonhard Euler** was a pioneering Swiss mathematician and physicist. He made important discoveries in fields as diverse as infinitesimal calculus and graph theory. He also introduced much of the modern mathematical terminology and notation, particularly for mathematical analysis, such as the notion of a mathematical function. He is also renowned for his work in mechanics, fluid dynamics, optics, and astronomy.

# Joseph Louis Lagrange

- 25 January 1736 - 10 April 1813

**Joseph Louis Lagrange** was a mathematician and astronomer born in Turin, Piedmont, who lived part of his life in Prussia and part in France. He made significant contributions to all fields of analysis, number theory, and classical and celestial mechanics.

# Michel Chasles

- 15 November 1793 - 18 December 1880

Chasles's contribution to our comprehension of the Porisms tends to be obscured by the inherent unreasonableness of his claim to have restored substantially the contents of Euclid's book on the basis of the meagre data of Pappus and Proclus...one still turns to Chasles for the first appreciation of the interest in the Porisms from the point of view of modern geometry. Above all, he was the first to notice the recurrence of cross-ratios and harmonic ratios in the lemmas, and because these concepts suffuse most of his restoration, it is probable that many of his inventions coincide with some of Euclid's, even if we cannot now tell which they are.

# Hubert Anson Newton

- 19 March 1830 - 12 August 1896

**Hubert Anson Newton** was an American astronomer and mathematician, noted for his research on meteors.

# E. H. Moore

- January 26, 1862 - December 30, 1932

**E. H. Moore** first worked in abstract algebra, proving in 1893 the classification of the structure of finite fields (also called Galois fields). Around 1900, he began working on the foundations of geometry. He reformulated Hilbert's axioms for geometry so that points were the only primitive notion, thus turning Hilbert's primitive lines and planes into defined notions. In 1902, he further showed that one of Hilbert's axioms for geometry was redundant. Independently, the twenty year old R.L. Moore (no relation) also proved this, but in a more elegant fashion than E. H. Moore used. When E. H. Moore heard of the feat, he arranged for a scholarship that would allow R.L. Moore to study for a doctorate at Chicago. E.H. Moore's work on axiom systems is considered one of the starting points for metamathematics and model theory. After 1906, he turned to the foundations of analysis. The concept of closure operator first appeared in his 1910 Introduction to a form of general analysis. He also wrote on algebraic geometry, number theory, and integral equations.

# Oswald Veblen

- June 24, 1880 - August 10, 1960
- Ph.D. University of Chicago 1903

During his career, Veblen made important contributions in topology and in projective and differential geometries, including results important in modern physics. He introduced the Veblen axioms for projective geometry and proved the Veblenâ€“Young theorem. He introduced the Veblen functions of ordinals and used an extension of them to define the small and large Veblen ordinals. He was involved in overseeing the World War II work that produced the pioneering ENIAC electronic digital computer. He also published a paper in 1912 on the four-color conjecture.

# Philip Franklin

- October 5, 1898 - January 27, 1965
- Ph.D. Princeton University 1921

Philip Franklin (October 5, 1898 in New York â€” January 27, 1965 in Belmont, Massachusetts) was an American mathematician and professor whose work was primarily focused in analysis.

# Alan Perlis

- April 1, 1922 - February 7, 1990
- Ph.D. MIT 1950

**Alan Jay Perlis** was an American computer scientist known for his pioneering work in programming languages and the first recipient of the Turing Award.
