Mathematical Biographies

Published by patrick honner on

old mathematiciansThis is a comprehensive library of on-line biographies of mathematicians, brought to you by the School of Math and Statistics at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland.

This is a truly remarkable resource.  It looks as though they have thousands of mathematicians in the database, and you can search the biographies by author, region, area, or mathematical topic.

Each entry contains a bio, a list of publications, awards, pictures, and other related materials.  You can also check out their famous curves index.

Bravo, SMSUSAS!  This is the kind of thing that the internet was really made for.
