Overview

This compendium introduces readers to a brilliant group of mathematicians. The collection encompasses ancient sages, Renaissance geniuses, Enlightenment-era polymaths, nineteenth-century innovators, great minds of the twentieth century, and current leaders in the field. Also covered are the geniuses whose names are preserved in Fermats Last Theorem, Boolean algebra, and the Fibonacci sequence.
