  • John von Neumann
rdfs:comment
  • Most notably, von Neumann was a pioneer of the application of operator theory to quantum mechanics, a principal member of the Manhattan Project and the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton (as one of the few originally appointed), and a key figure in the development of game theory and the concepts of cellular automata and the universal constructor. Along with Edward Teller and Stanislaw Ulam, von Neumann worked out key steps in the nuclear physics involved in thermonuclear reactions and the hydrogen bomb.
  • John von Neumann (Hungarian: Neumann János Lajos) (28 December 1903 - 8 February 1957) was a Hungarian-born American mathematician and polymath who made contributions to quantum physics, functional analysis, set theory, topology, economics, computer science, numerical analysis, hydrodynamics (of explosions), statistics and many other mathematical fields as one of history's outstanding mathematicians.
  • John von Neumann (December 28, 1903 – February 8, 1957) was a Hungarian-born American pure and applied mathematician and polymath. He was also a principal member of the Manhattan Project. In 1943, The Boss was ordered to infiltrate Los Alamos and assassinate von Neumann, under the belief that he was a Nazi spy. She failed in her mission and grew to regret failing the mission, even after it transpired that Neumann being a spy was actually Soviet misinformation to sabotage the Manhattan Project. The Boss felt that his living resulted in the Cold War, which made her partially responsible as well.
