Not to minimize the work of such a genius that was Einstein what about Lorentz and Poincar�'s contributions to special relativity?
And as a mathematician, Poincar� 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.
