JOHANN CARL FRIEDRICH GAUSS
Carl Friedrich Gauss was a German mathematician and scientist who dominated the mathematical community during and after his lifetime. His outstanding work includes the discovery of the method of least squares, the discovery of non-Euclidean geometry, and important contributions to the theory of numbers. Born in Brunswick, Germany, on April 30, 1777, Johann Friedrich Carl Gauss showed early and unmistakable signs of being an extraordinary youth. At the age of three he amazed his father by correcting an arithmetical error. As a child prodigy, he was self taught in the fields of reading and mathematics. Recognizing his talent, his youthful studies were rush by the Duke of Brunswick in 1792 when he was provided with an earnings to allow him to pursue his education. In 1795, he continued his mathematical studies at the University of Göttingen.

Gauss's supposed method, which reason the list of numbers was from 1 to 100, was to realize that pair wise addition of terms from opposite ends of the list submit equal transitional sums: 1 + 100 = 101, 2 + 99 = 101, 3 + 98 = 101, and so on, for a total sum of 50 × 101 = 5050. Gauss built the theory of complex numbers into its modern form, including the notion of "monogenic" functions which are now everywhere in mathematical physics. In 1799, he attain his doctorate in absentia from the University of Helmeted, for providing the first practically complete proof of what is now called the fundamental theorem of algebra which is that an n-th degree polynomial has n complex roots. The other assist of Gauss is quite many and includes the first complete proof of Euclid's Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic, which is that every natural number has a unique expression as product of primes. Many as well include hyper geometric series, foundations of statistics, and differential geometry.

For hundreds of years mathematics has played a significant role in the development of society, from organizing calendars to the latest method of encryption for the United States government computers. Civilization as we know it would be altered immensely if mathematics did not play such a...

...CarlGauss was a man who is known for making a great deal breakthroughs in the wide variety of his work in both mathematics and physics. He is responsible for immeasurable contributions to the fields of number theory, analysis, differential geometry, geodesy, magnetism, astronomy, and optics, as well as many more. The concepts that he himself created have had an immense influence in many areas of the mathematic and scientific world.

From a very young age, Riemann exhibited his exceptional skills, which included fantastic calculation abilities, however was shy and suffered numerous nervous break downs. Riemann went on to became a world redound mathematician. He became famous for his hypothesis, called the Riemann Hypothesis....

...Karl Gauss: Biography
Karl Gauss lived from 1777 to 1855. He was a German mathematician,
physician, and astronomer. He was born in Braunschweig, Germany, on April 30th,
1777. His family was poor and uneducated. His father was a gardener and a
merchant's assistant.
At a young age, Gauss taught himself how to read and count, and it is
said that he spotted a mistake in his father's calculations when he was only
three. Throughout the rest of his...

...Greetings, my fellows! I am Gauss, JohannCarlFriedrichGauss. I am a German mathematician and I contributed significantly to maths and physics. I was born on the 30th April 1777 in Braunschweig, Germany. Unfortunately, my mother was not well educated and could not read or write and could not record my date of birth. The only she remembered was that I was born on a Wednesday, eight days before the Feast of Ascension, which...
