Carl Friedrich Gauss (30 April 1777 – 23 February 1855) was a famous German mathematician and physicist.
Carl Friedrich Gauss was born in Lower Saxony, Germany. He was recognized at a very young age as being an astonishing child prodigy, with many of his ground-breaking discoveries being made in his mid-teens. Gauss went on to contribute greatly in a multitude of fields such as number theory, statistics, differential geometry, electrostatics, astronomy, etc.
Numerous mathematical formulas have been named after him. The gauss unit (abb. G), which measures magnetic flux density, is also named in his honor.
