    Swiss anatomist, physiologist, and histologist. Born in Zurich, Switzerland. Wikipedia

  • Wilhelm Wien

    German physicist who, in 1893, used theories about heat and electromagnetism to deduce Wien's displacement law, which calculates the emission of a blackbody at any temperature from the emission at any one reference temperature. Expression for the black-body radiation, which is correct in the photon-gas limit. Wikipedia

  • Eric Allin Cornell

    American physicist who, along with Carl E. Wieman, was able to synthesize the first Bose–Einstein condensate in 1995. For their efforts, Cornell, Wieman, and Wolfgang Ketterle shared the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2001. Wikipedia

    German mathematician who made deep contributions to number theory (including creating the field of analytic number theory), and to the theory of Fourier series and other topics in mathematical analysis; he is credited with being one of the first mathematicians to give the modern formal definition of a function. Lejeune Dirichlet, he is commonly referred to as just Dirichlet, in particular for results named after him. Wikipedia

  • Tullio Levi-Civita
