Date: 8/9/96 at 18:38:44 From: Doctor Paul Subject: Re: Greatest Mathematician Boy... what a tough question! If I had to pick one, I don't think I could do it.

You can read about their (and others') accomplishments here: Euler - http://www.astro.virginia.edu/~eww6n/bios/Euler.html Newton - http://www.astro.virginia.edu/~eww6n/bios/Newton.html Regards, -Doctor Paul, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
