Facts about two mathematicians.

#1.
His collected works appear in five volumes: the first contains 62 papers which (...) ; the second contains 107 of the 147 papers (...); the third includes 89 of the 180 papers (...); the fourth contains 98 of the 232 papers he published (...).


#2.
(...) school reports began to describe him as singular, bizarre, original and closed. - (...) took the examination of the École Polytechnique but failed. - This is the only student who has answered me poorly, he knows absolutely nothing. I was told that this student has an extraordinary capacity for mathematics. This astonishes me greatly, for, after his examination, I believed him to have but little intelligence. - (Later in life he was sent to prison twice.)

I am sure that you remember at least one of them, I am not sure about the other though. Do you recognize the persons already? - One of them is recognized as one of the greatest minds that ever lived. The other has been criticized for the lack of depth in his work.

Who are they?
- Mystery person #1.
- Mystery person #2.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before




(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
