      Not to minimize the work of such a genius that was Einstein what about Lorentz and Poincaré's contributions to special relativity?
      And as a mathematician, Poincaré probably ranks in the top of the list close to Euler and Gauss.

      Among my favorite mathematicians is also Galois: I can't hardly imagine the work he would have achieved if he did not die (stupidly) at only 20.
