Einstein devised the principle of relativity: “the speed of light is a constant in any inertial frame (constant moving frame)” (pg 2, Kaku). The physics community ignored Einstein’s papers of the principle of relativity. It was not until Max Planck, the founder of the quantum theory, took interest in...
sciences. This paper will discuss the historical background, respective times, and contemporary and modern societal contributions of three of those mathematicians: Archimedes of Syracuse, Isaac Newton, and Leonhard Euler.
Archimedes of Syracuse
Archimedes was born in a Greek city-state of Syracuse, Sicily...
Louis Pasteur
CONTRIBUTIONS:
He is known as the founder of microbiology, Pasteur discovered the role of bacteria in fermentation. His experiments with bacteria conclusively disproved the theory of spontaneous generation and led to the theory that infection is caused by germs. Extrapolating from...
Overview:
Isaac Newton is considered by many to be the father of modern physics. He invented calculus, and with calculus, people could now create mathematical models of changing systems. His three laws of motion and his law of gravitation, however, are still one of the first things that all physics students...

He and his mathematical rival, Isaac Newton, became the first foreign members of the French Academy of Science. He also introduced the word function into mathematics, symbolizing it by the concept...

to their according coordinates to maximize their potential. These accomplishments are to be credited to Sir Isaac Newton, easily one of the greatest minds of all times. Sir Isaac Newton was born in Woolsthrope, in the year of 1642 (Robert). He was born in a poor farmer’s family, and he was deprived...

Aristarchus - He managed to place the sun in the middle of the solar system and he also
placed the planets in the right order from the sun.
Ptolemy - Developed several mathematical models to describe the motions of the sun,
the moon, the planets, and the stars. The models all assume...
Alexander Graham Bell
Alexander Graham Bell is generally credited in the U. S. with being the inventor of the telephone although this claim has been controversial lately since there are also claims that Antonio Meucci or Elisha Gray were the real first inventors. Alexander Graham Bell was born in...

Isaac Newton
Isaac Newton made a multitude of discoveries that are still relevant in today’s academia. Many people have referred to him as one of the most important scientist that has ever lived. He is mostly known by his Theory of Universal Gravity and laws of motion, Newton’s laws,...

Newton’s Three Laws Of Motion
Have you ever wondered why when you are going about your daily activities, nothing ever seems to float out of place? That is because of a force that pulls everything towards the center of the earth called gravity. How come we know so much about this...

Statement: Through his early life experiences and with the knowledge left by his predecessors, Sir Isaac Newton was able to develop calculus, natural forces, and optics. From birth to early childhood, Isaac Newton overcame many personal, social, and mental hardships. It is through these experiences that helped...
