Everyone has his/her favourites.
After 1600, my favourite mathematicians are
Newton, Euler, Gauss,
and my favourite physicists are
Newton, Maxwell, Einstein.
Some people might choose Riemann instead of Euler,
some might choose Dirac instead of Maxwell.
(It's hard to keep Newton out of either list, even
though he was not a particularly likeable person.)
