**Who are the two German mathematician?**

Georg Ferdinand

Georg Cantor, in full Georg Ferdinand Ludwig Philipp Cantor, (born March 3, 1845, St. Petersburg, Russia—died January 6, 1918, Halle, Germany), German mathematician who founded set theory and introduced the mathematically meaningful concept of transfinite numbers, indefinitely large but distinct from one another.

### Who is the father of Triangle?

It is named for the 17th-century French mathematician Blaise Pascal, but it is far older. Chinese mathematician Jia Xian devised a triangular representation for the coefficients in the 11th century.

**How do you pronounce Dedekind?**

**Did Georg Cantor get married?**

He was awarded the requisite habilitation for his thesis, also on number theory, which he presented in 1869 upon his appointment at Halle University. In 1874, Cantor married Vally Guttmann. They had six children, the last (Rudolph) born in 1886.

#### Why did Cantor go insane?

Georg Cantor suffered from bi-polar disorder and whilst the stress caused by the serious objections to his work by a number of his colleagues probably aggravated his illness it was almost certainly not its cause.

**Who is known as the king of mathematics?**

Leonhard Euler, a Swiss mathematician that introduced various modern terminology and mathematical notation, is called the King of mathematics. He was born in 1707 in Basel, Switzerland, and at the age of thirteen, he joined the University of Basel, where he became a Master of Philosophy.

**What is the contribution of Richard Dedekind in mathematics?**

Richard Dedekind. Julius Wilhelm Richard Dedekind (6 October 1831 – 12 February 1916) was a German mathematician who made important contributions to abstract algebra (particularly ring theory), axiomatic foundation for the natural numbers, algebraic number theory and the definition of the real numbers.

## What was Richard Dedekind’s place of death?

place of death: Braunschweig, German Empire. Richard Dedekind was a German mathematician who became famous for his contributions to the field of abstract algebra,especially the algebraic theory for numbers, the ring theory, and the foundation of real numbers.

**How did Dedekind create the real numbers?**

As noted, Dedekind starts with the system of rational numbers; he uses a set-theoretic procedure to construct, in a central step, the new system of cuts out of them; and finally, the real numbers are “created” on that basis. This suggests three sub-questions: First, how exactly are we to think about the rational numbers in this connection?

**What is the best book on Frege and Dedekind’s number theory?**
