## List of most famous mathematicians

Following are the names of the most important mathematicians in the world

### Srinivasa Ramanujan

Born: December 22, 1887

The Difference Engine, the first mechanical calculator all over the world, was created by Charles Babbage. He is known as the father of the computer. He also developed the Analytical Engine with the assistance of mathematician Ada Lovelace. Other events done by him are the forerunner of the contemporary computer with sequencing function.

Ada was the one who provided commentary on the famous work of Charles Babbage on mechanical computers. She was the first person who found that this machine can perform beyond calculations. Also, she gave the first algorithm to work beyond the calculations. Due to this reason, she is many times considered the first computer programmer.

### Pythagoras

Born: c. 570

Died: 27 November 1852

Died: 180 BC

### Archimedes

Born: 0287 BC

The Difference Engine, the first mechanical calculator all over the world, was created by Charles Babbage. He is known as the father of the computer. He also developed the Analytical Engine with the assistance of mathematician Ada Lovelace. Other events done by him are the forerunner of the contemporary computer with sequencing function.

Died: October 18, 1871

### Euclid

Born: Mid-4th Century

Aryabhata was a famous Indian mathematician and astronomer. One of the most important inventions made by him was the invention of the digit 0. He was the one who found the value of pie up to 4 decimal numbers and proved that the pie is an irrational number. Other areas where he worked were the determination of square roots and cubes, menstruations, quadratic equations, etc. Aryabhatiya and Arya Sidhanta were other famous works of his. His detailed work on trigonometry was also included in the Islamic Golden Age.

Died: 120 BC

### Diophantus

Born: AD 200

Died: 120 BC

Hypatia was the first woman to work in and give importance to a mathematician. She inspired many women in the field of Mathematics. In Alexandrias history, she was a popular mathematics teacher and was the first one to give commentary on Diophantuss thirteen-volume Arithmetica. One of her famous methods of algorithm needed for astronomical calculations.

Died: 27 November 1852

### Hipparchus

Born: 190 BC

Died: 27 November 1852

Diocles was a famous mathematician who worked a lot in the field of geometry. In various geometry books, the geometry curves are known in his name as Cissoid of Diocles. Also, the method of Cissoid of Diocles was used to determine the problem of doubling cubes. He was the first mathematician to work on focal property on the Parabola.

### Charles Babbage

Born: December 26, 1791

Ptolemy was a great Mathematician, geographer, writer, etc. He has worked a lot in mathematics including geometry. Ptolemy has also written a lot of books out of which his best creation was Almagest. He was the one who derived the geometrical models of Hipparchus for the sun, moon, and planets. The Sun is in the middle of the universe and was also firstly determined by him.

## Conclusion

Mathematics played an important role in various studies and even in our life. Without knowing the fundamentals of mathematics we are unable to work properly. Therefore it becomes crucial to know about the famous mathematicians who are behind the basic theories and mathematics fundamental theorems.
