Bruce, Do you mean European, Asian, MesoAmerician or African? The influential depends upon the culture. Do you mean influential to mathematics or influential to society? Do you mean as a pure mathematician or as an applied mathematician? You have to narrow down your question. The way is is asked now is undecidable. Peace, Don
