Favorite Mathematicians
Contribute to our list of Favorite Mathematicians! Famous or obscure, some are largely unknown because they were women, engineers, surveyors or some combination of less recognized groups. Check out the list. You can add to the list if you have a Cornell login. In most cases, the name in the list corresponds to the primary Wikipedia page for that person so you can readily learn more. We draw from this list to name Breakout Rooms in the MSC Zoom Meeting.
