Leonhard Euler Report Abuse
Contributions to the subjects of geometry, calculus, mechanics, and number theory and developed methods for solving problems in observational astronomy.

With nearly a thousand first-class publications to his name, Leonhard Euler is the greatest mathematician of all time. He was relentlessly prolific. The champion of all the champions: not even his blindness (at a later age) slowed him down.

this man deserve to be on the first position because he spent almost 17 years of his life in total blindness but this does not retard the output of his research

Srinivasa Ramanujan Report Abuse
52 points - added 10 years ago by kris - 5 comments
Comments:
Srinivasa Ramanujan definitely ranks at the top of the pile of all time greatest mathematicians. He discovered many of Euler's and other mathematicians theorems before he was 14 ! His genius was far greater than Euler /Gauss/Jacobi. Very sad that he died young.

Self taught genius, who lived in poverty most of his life. Did not get to do much mathematics in his lifetime but still managed to compile 4000 theorems or conjectures in number theory, algebra, and combinatorics. He might be almost unknown today, but he wrote inexplicable formulae which "must be true, because if they were not true, no one would have had the imagination to invent them." Much of his methodology, including unusual ideas about divergent series, was his own invention. (As a young man he made the absurd claim that 1+2+3+4+... = -1/12. Later it was noticed that this claim translates to a true statement about the Riemann zeta function, with which Ramanujan was unfamiliar.) Ramanujan's innate ability for algebraic manipulations definitely surpassed that of Euler and Jacobi.

Sharpest mind in mathematical history. Godfrey Hardy was once asked what the greatest mathematical discovery was, to which he simply replied "the discovery of Ramanujan".

the greatest and most legendary mathematical mind that ever existed: far more powerful than the likes of Euler and Gauss.

Archimedes Report Abuse
Known for his discovery of the relation between the surface and volume of a sphere and its circumscribing cyclinder and formulation of a hydrostatic principle (known as Archimedes' principle)

Sorry but Archimedes is one of the best mathematicians ever, he was the best mathematician in the ancient time.He knew everything about math for two thousand years ago. He did the Archimedes principle for two thousand years ago, It´s very difficult even today to do that he did for two thousands years ago.
