No one bothers to find out about the greatest mathematicians of all time. In fact there could be dozens of great mathematicians alive right now but we still don’t want to know about them. This is Wrong.

When i was a student i always thought what purpose does mathematics serve? Why we have to study all these numbers, algebra, geometry, calculus? Why we have to keep finding ‘X’ again and again. However as i grew up i came to know just how important mathematics is. From just making a pen to the working of satellites, Mathematics plays a crucial role in our day to day lives. Without Mathematics we wouldn’t have been any civilized and advance race as we are today.

Surely we need to thanks all the great scientists and mathematicians who made our life more comfortable and enjoyable as well. Here we have compiled a list of 51 greatest mathematicians of all time. It was due to the contribution of these great personalities that we are able to live a life with so many comforts and luxuries in our hands.

Here are the 52 greatest mathematicians ever:
