Niels Abel and some of his work Many innovational mathematicians come and go, but only a few remembered for their great accomplishments. Niels Henrik Abel is one of the greatest mathematicians that have influenced modern mathematics, solving and creating theorems, like the Abelian-Ruffini theorem and Abel's theorem, and formulas/equations, like the abel equation, Abel’s inequality. He started discovering and creating these at a young age. Niels Abel was born in Norway, in a neighborhood parish, to Georg Abel, who was a pastor with a degree in theology and philosophy, and Anne Marie Simonsen, a daughter to a wealthy merchant. Abel was homeschooled by his father and was giving hand written books to study from. When Norway gained its independence, Georg Abel was elected to the Norwegian legislature, also known as the Storting, and George decided to send one of his sons to the cathedral school, at which Georg worked. The following year he sent his eldest son to the school. this was the first time Niels ever went to school. Niels started cathedral school at age 13 and was shared rooms and classes with older brothers. compared to his older brother, Niels didn't seem to be a prodigy because his brothers grades were far better than his own. Only when a new teacher, Bernt Holmboe, started at the school, did Niels begin to take interests in math and caught the attention of the new math teacher. Bernt began to give Niels higher level math and give him extra tutoring. after

Pedro Nune's was considered one of the best mathematicians of his time. And is is best known for his contribution to the technical field of navigation. His work varied from pure mathematicians to mechanics to cosmographe to geography and then to
David Hilbert was a German mathematician whose research and study of geometry, physics, and algebra revolutionized mathematics and went on to introduce the mathematic and scientific community with a series of mathematical equations that have yet to be solved. Furthermore, his study of mathematics laid the groundwork for a variety of ongoing mathematic analyses, which continue to influence the world today.
The 20th century saw a shift in dance as new forms were created and artists began entertaining audiences in new ways. The rise of Jazz music and the swing era allowed a couple of tap dancers, commonly known as the Nicholas Brothers, to gain fame. The Nicholas Brothers questioned what dance could be by pushing the human body to the limits the likes of which had not been seen before. Other innovations in their dance such as their vernacular style, informal training, and unique musicality directly opposed many of the virtues of classical ballet. Through my own interpretations of their work as well as through the use of primary and secondary sources it is clear to see that the Nicholas Brothers opposed classical ballet through their style, musicality,

The gender views of European medieval society were largely built upon the views of Aristotle and others alike that degraded the status of women into a lower form of life, characterizing them as secondary to men. Many successive Christian intellects such as St. Augustine also contributed to establishing the idea of misogyny in the medieval views toward the female sexuality, which helped to create the gender stereotype that severely separated the role of men and women. One possible explanation for which created gender inequality in the society may be attributed to medieval education that regarded the Bible and Aristotle as unquestionable authority, as well as the limited
Robert Adam (1728–92) was one of the most important British architects working in the Neo-classical style and was a main force in the development of a unified style that extended beyond architecture and interiors to include both the fixed and moveable objects in a room. He was a essential Scottish neoclassical architect, interior designer and furniture designer of his century. He incorporated design ideas from ancient Greece and Rome into his forms and decoration. His famous London houses include Kenwood House, Osterley Park and Syon House. Robert Adam developed the "Adam Style", and his theory of "movement" in architecture, based on his studies of antiquity, by contrasting room sizes and decorative schemes.
Otto Neugebauer was one of the famous Australian-American mathematicians who are also a historian of science. Through his study, he was able to acknowledge that Babylonian basically knew much more when it comes to mathematics and astronomy. Neugebauer is also recognized as one of the most original and also the most productive scholars of the history of science.
Mathematics has contributed to the alteration of technology over many years. The most noticeable mathematical technology is the evolution of the abacus to the many variations of the calculator. Some people argue that the changes in technology have been for the better while others argue they have been for the worse. While this paper does not address specifically technology, this paper rather addresses influential persons in philosophy to the field of mathematics. In order to understand the impact of mathematics, this paper will delve into the three philosophers of the past who have contributed to this academic. In this paper, I will cover the views of three philosophers of mathematics encompassing their
