Fri, 24 Feb 2017 16:08:16 -0400j4p4nThis is Katherine Johnson. One of the first African American women scientists/mathematicians to work with NASA a long time ago. (They are actually making a movie about her and many of the other women that worked during that time called Hidden Figures) This is based on a NASA public domain image.https://openclipart.org/detail/273965/katherine-johnsonhttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/publicdomain/Omar

The graphic itself shows his name as Michael M?stlinus, Latin for the German Michael Möstlin, hence the title.https://openclipart.org/detail/254578/michael-mostlinhttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/publicdomain/Galileo Galilei (pastel)

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 21:36:12 -0400FirkinThe posting of Galileo by AdamStanislav was inspiring. And the face of this influential man has character. So I went to the original and sought to present it in different ways. This is the first - the original jpg with contrast and brightness adjusted, the saturation tweaked, speckley background removed and then traced.https://openclipart.org/detail/251221/galileo-galilei-colourhttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/publicdomain/Karl Friedrich Gauss

From en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Friedrich_Gauss: ?Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss (/?a?s/; German: Gauß, pronounced [?a?s]; Latin: Carolus Fridericus Gauss) (30 April 1777 ? 23 February 1855) was a German mathematician who contributed significantly to many fields, including number theory, algebra, statistics, analysis, differential geometry, geodesy, geophysics, mechanics, electrostatics, astronomy, matrix theory, and optics.
Sometimes referred to as the Princeps mathematicorum (Latin, "the foremost of mathematicians") and "greatest mathematician since antiquity", Gauss had an exceptional influence in many fields of mathematics and science and is ranked as one of history's most influential mathematicians.?
Yes, he was all that and a lot more. But my favorite story is from his childhood. It is said one day his math teacher needed to do some work instead of teaching, so at the beginning of the lesson he told the pupils to add up the numbers from 1 to 100. They starting working and the teacher started doing whatever it was he needed to do. But just a few minutes later, young Karl raised his hand and said the numbers added up to 5050. The teacher just shook his head and told Karl not to fib.
Closer to an hour later other pupils started raising their hands and they also said the result was 5050. The teacher then asked Karl how he could calculate the result so quickly. Karl said that 1+100=101, 2+99=101,3+98=101,...,50+51=101. There were fifty such pairs that added up to 101 each. Therefore, the sum of the numbers from 1 to 100 equals 50 times 101, and that is 5050. Duh!
Whether the story is true or not, that is the basis of Gauss? algorithm for adding any sequence of numbers starting anywhere and ending anywhere else. And it shows Gauss would make an amazing computer programmer because this type of problem solving is the heart of computer programming.https://openclipart.org/detail/250953/karl-friedrich-gausshttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/publicdomain/Bertrand Russell in 1917

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bertrand_Russell:?Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell, OM, FRS (/?r?s?l/; 18 May 1872 ? 2 February 1970) was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, writer, social critic, political activist and Nobel laureate. At various points in his life he considered himself a liberal, a socialist, and a pacifist, but he also admitted that he had "never been any of these things, in any profound sense". He was born in Monmouthshire into one of the most prominent aristocratic families in the United Kingdom.
In the early 20th century, Russell led the British "revolt against idealism". He is considered one of the founders of analytic philosophy along with his predecessor Gottlob Frege, colleague G. E. Moore, and his protégé Ludwig Wittgenstein. He is widely held to be one of the 20th century's premier logicians. With A. N. Whitehead he wrote Principia Mathematica, an attempt to create a logical basis for mathematics. His philosophical essay "On Denoting" has been considered a "paradigm of philosophy". His work has had a considerable influence on logic, mathematics, set theory, linguistics, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science (see type theory and type system), and philosophy, especially the philosophy of language, epistemology, and metaphysics.
Russell was a prominent anti-war activist; he championed anti-imperialism and went to prison for his pacifism during World War I. Later, he campaigned against Adolf Hitler, then criticised Stalinist totalitarianism, attacked the involvement of the United States in the Vietnam War, and was an outspoken proponent of nuclear disarmament. In 1950 Russell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought".?https://openclipart.org/detail/250930/bertrand-russell-in-1917http://creativecommons.org/licenses/publicdomain/Galileo Galilei

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 00:30:24 -0400AdamStanislavJohannes Müller von Königsberg (6 June 1436 ? 6 July 1476), today best known by the Latin epithet Regiomontanus, was a German mathematician, astronomer, astrologer, translator, instrument maker and Catholic bishop. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regiomontanus and also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universitas_Istropolitana for more.
Note that he died exactly one month after his 40th birthday, yet managed to enter the history of mathematics and science. See, for example, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regiomontanus%27_angle_maximization_problem, which is, ?A painting hangs from a wall. Given the heights of the top and bottom of the painting above the viewer's eye level, how far from the wall should the viewer stand in order to maximize the angle subtended by the painting and whose vertex is at the viewer's eye??https://openclipart.org/detail/250879/regiomontanushttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/publicdomain/Aristotle
