Bernhard Georg Friedrich Riemann
Birth: Sep. 17, 1826
Lüchow-Dannenberger Landkreis
Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen), Germany
Death: Jul. 20, 1866
Provincia Verbano-Cusio-Ossola
Piemonte, Italy

Bernhard Riemann has been one of the greatest mathematicians of all time. His contributions span from algebra to analysis, from non-euclidean geometry to topology. After the solution of the Last Theorem of Fermat, the Riemann's Hypothesis on the distribution of the Prime Numbers is the last big problem still open from the 19th century. He spent the last years of his life mainly in Italy, in the disperate tentative to recover from tubercolosys. He passed away in Selasca, Lake Maggiore, assisted by his wife. As Galois and Abel, he died too young: who knows all the discoveries such a sharp mind could have produced! He rests in the churchyard of Biganzolo, in the parish of Selasca. His gravestone carries the following inscription: Here rest in God Georg Friedrich Bernhard Riemann Professor at Gottingen Born in Breselenz, Sept. 17, 1826 Died in Selasca, July 20, 1866 "All things work together for good to them that love God"? .The epitaph is from St. Paul's epistle to the Romans. Riemann's grave site no longer exists. It was destroyed in a later reorganization of the church property. The inscribed stone survived, though, and has been set in a nearby wall. (bio by: Duke)
