Description: Pronunciations of the names of mathematicians frequently encountered by undergraduate students, with links to information about them in the MacTutor History of Mathematics archives. Note on Pronunciation: Not all of the phonetic pronunciation symbols can be used in HTML (for example the schwa sound symbol and long vowel symbols) so this guide uses some nonstandard symbolism. Not all Web browsers, for example, Lynx, recognize some of the special characters used in this document. The accented syllable is capitalized.
