discovered/invented | Scientist |

Most widely known for observing that electric currents induce magnetic fields. He shaped post-Kantian philosophy and advances in science throughout the late 19th century. | |

Founded qualitative dynamics (the mathematical theory of dynamical systems); created topology; contributed to solution of the three-body problem | |

First heliocentric model of the solar system | |

Principle states that for an inviscid flow, an increase in the speed of the fluid occurs simultaneously with a decrease in pressure or a decrease in the fluid's potential energy | |

Developed new methods of classical/analytical mechanics | |

French mathematician, mechanician, physicist and philosopher. He was also co-editor with Denis Diderot of the Encyclopédie. | |

Invented the microscope | |

Formulated the general theory of elasticity in a mathematically usable form (1821) | |

Demonstrated existence of the electron | |

Originated the concept of a programmable computer | |

Credited with the law of refraction | |

He gave the earliest public lecture on the principles behind the laser and the maser and developed the first gravitational wave detectors | |

Pilot wave interpretation of quantum mechanics | |

Dutch computer researcher who published on eavesdropping on the contents of a CRT and LCD display. | |

Discovered radio waves and the photoelectric effect | |

Proved the stability of the solar system. He also put the theory of mathematical probability on a sound footing. | |

Invented the refracting telescope | |

Significant contributions to game theory, differential geometry, and partial differential equations | |

Credited with the most accurate astronomical observations of his time. Work used by his contemporary, Kepler | |

Cat thought experiment | |

His work included early telescopic studies elucidating the nature of the rings of Saturn and the discovery of its moon Titan, the invention of the pendulum clock and other investig | |

He created the first vaccine for rabies | |

Founding contributions in the fields of statistical mechanics and statistical thermodynamics | |

Discovered argon; explained how light scattering is responsible for red color of sunset and blue color of sky | |

His law relates the distribution of electric charge to the resulting electric field. | |

Developed the resonance technique for measuring the magnetic properties of atomic nuclei | |

Worked with Otto Hahn in the discovery of fission | |

Jean Dieudonné called him 'the last of the great mathematicians' | |

Francis Crick acknowledged him as the 'father of molecular biology' | |

Developed chemical thermodynamics; introduced concepts of free energy and chemical potential | |

Incompleteness Theorem | |

Discovery of penicillin launched the modern era of antibiotics | |

Navier-_______ Equation for fluid dynamics | |

The idea is that the local motion of a rotating reference frame is determined by the large scale distribution of matter | |
