Gauss is said to have claimed, "There have been only three epoch-making mathematicians: Archimedes, Newton, and Eisenstein". Gauss's choice of Eisenstein, who specialized in number theory and analysis, may seem puzzling to many, but it is justified by the fact that Eisenstein easily proved several results that were unattainable even for Gauss, like the theorem on biquadratic reciprocity. Carl Friedrich Gauss (Gauß) (April 30, 1777 – February 23, 1855) was a German mathematician and scientist of profound genius who contributed significantly to many fields, including number theory, analysis, differential geometry, geodesy, magnetism, astronomy and optics. ...
