Georg Friedrich Bernhard Riemann was a prominent German mathematician who bestowed the world with his brilliant contributions to analysis, number theory and differential geometry; some of which aided the later development of general relativity. In his short career—he died at the age of 39—he pioneered in developing ideas of fundamental importance in complex analysis, real analysis, differential geometry and other subjects. His name is connected with what is supposed to be the most important unproved assumption in present-day mathematics, the 'Riemann Hypothesis'. Most of his journals are genuine masterpieces - filled with innovative methods, insightful ideas and extensive imagination. He studied mathematics under Gauss and physics under Wilhelm Weber. Riemann always suffered from health problems and that proved fatal for his life in the end.
