The article offers information about various mathematicians and their contributions in the field of Mathematics. It mentions that Srinivasa Ramanujan was one of the most obtained through intuition mathematicians of all time. On the other hand, Matteo Ricci, the first missionary in China, distributed knowledge of western science, especially in mathematics, astronomy, and geography. Additionally, Adam Riese, was the most influential of the commercial arithmetics in Germany.
