"If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. Isaac Newton, Letter to Robert Hooke, February 5, 1675 English mathematician & physicist (1642 - 1727)" ------------------------ In a mathematics history class, the professor insisted that Archimedes, Gausss, and Newton were THE three most important mathematicians of history. I tend to select as important those mathematicians whose creations I enjoy though I know that they built upon the works of other mathematicians. To my thinking, every mathematician who ever wrote anything mathematical furthered the development of the discipline and should bear the descriptor of "important." Even Argand's one contribution still stands and bears his name though he was not a bona fide mathematician. 1. Archimedes 2. Pythagoras 3. Euclid 4. Mandelbrot
