How so ever you hated mathematics as a student, you cannot but deny its importance in everyday lives. Had it not been for maths, would selling and making purchases have been possible? How would the seller charge you and in what way would you pay him for the items? Would tracking your cake batter in the oven be possible if not for maths? Maths has been an indispensible part of our everyday life. It is used in so many other subjects and science that it is rightly tapped as the queen of science and the master of the language of nature. Right from animation to astronomy, fashion designing to architecture, maths is used everywhere. And much of that has been due to the prominent mathematicians who have made revolutionary discoveries and findings through their research and experiments. While talking about mathematicians, one cannot but envisage the contribution made by the Italian counterparts. Right from Fibonacci who introduced in Europe and the western world the sequence of Fibonacci numbers to Galileo Galilei’s use of mathematics for his revolutionary research on astronomy, Italy has been blessed with renowned mathematicians. Check this segment and find out in details about famous Italian mathematicians, their life, work and contribution in the field of numbers.
