    Mathematican and his work

    Hey there!

    I have to do a project in my math class and for that project we have to name a famous contributor to mathematics, write a bibliography etc. and create a problem that models one of his or her contributions. I am really desperate right now and dont know how to create a problem. Does somebody know a mathematian and a mathematical problem (maybe not the most difficult) related to the mathematican?
    you would help me a lot

    greeting, mira
    ps please excuse my english, im just a foreign kid

    Only problem is if it is a PROBLEM in mathematics it will be pretty difficult

    I would suggest Euler and The Riemann Hypothesis

    Or Poincare and the Poincare conjecture (although this was proven by a Russian mathematician whose name alludes me Alexi? Grigori?)

    Try Jean Baptiste Fourier and the Heat Diffusion Problem. It shouldn't be that bad.
