John von Neumann

“John von Neumann (b. 28 December 1903, Budapest, Hungary; d. 8 February 1957, Washington, DC) has become one of the legendary figures of 20th century mathematics. The stories of his quickness of mind, power of absolute recall, linguistic range, and sense of humor abound in the literature and among his former associates. During his career he made significant contributions to logic, to quantum physics, to the theory of high-speed computing machines, and to economics through the mathematical theory of games and strategy. His work in any one of the fields would have secured him a distinguished position in present-day science.”
