Who is the greatest mathematician of all time? And i don't necessarily mean the one with the longest lasting contribution. Who do you think was in general the brighest, smartest, cleverest, etc? I would be willing to suggest Gauss. Any ideas???

de cartes - anylitic geometry, the cartesian plane

euclid - everything thats not non-eulcidean geometry

riemann - sums, other stuff

leibniz, newton - cofounders of calculus

archimedes - eureka!, did area/volume formulas

euler- made the notation for modern day math, his formula [e ^(i*x) = cos(x) + isin(x)] becomes [e ^(i*pi)+1= 0] with pi=x. this formula has all the cool parts of math related to each other (0, 1, e, i, and pi)

euler is my vote

Newton and Euler.

Newton was just pure genius and I dont understand how he could have done soo much. And Euler..well he was just brilliant. Was just looking at his pentagonal number theorem today..good stuff.

Either Newton or Euler, but i would personally go w/ Newton, since he did so much.
