George Fredinand Ludwig Phillip Cantor was a famous German mathematician, known for building and discovering hierarchy of infinite sets. Cantor was born into a family of musicians and even had slight interest in music during his early age but that later changed. After graduating from the University of Zurich with specialization in mathematics, physics and philosophy, Cantor started working as a teacher in Berlin girls’ school. He worked there for 10 years and in-between he also published a series of ten papers wherein he mentioned about the theory of numbers. Soon after that he started working on trigonometric series by Bernhard Riemann, a German mathematician and his work later came to be known as the set theory. His article ‘On a Property of the Collection of All Real Algebraic Numbers’, marked the beginning of set theory as a branch in mathematics. Cantor later extended his studies and published a series of six articles ‘Mathematics Annalen’ which contained an introduction to this set theory. Despite the criticism he faced, he continued publishing papers and stated his ‘diagonal argument’ and proved the existence of uncountable set. His theory today is known as the ‘Cantor’s Theorem’. Being a renowned mathematician, he shared his views on various aspects of life including mathematics, research, life, success, failure, etc. We have collected some of his greatest quotes and sayings below.
