Angela Brett and Dustan Dowsing

DIOPHANTUS  Decided Influence On Precise, Handwritten Algebraic Notation. Thought Unpositives Superfluous. 
Angela Brett

EUCLID  'E's Unclear... Can Lines Intersect Dually? 
Angela Brett, because Euclid's first postulate saying that a straight line can be drawn from any point to any point does not explicitly say that the line is unique.

FERMAT  Famous Equation Really Made Andrew Think! 
Angela Brett (Andrew Wiles eventually proved Fermat's Last Theorem centuries after Fermat's death.)

GAUSS  Got Answers Using Simultaneous Solutions 
Angela Brett, thinking of Gaussian elimination, a way of solving simultaneous equations. I didn't feel like acronymising the whole thing!

GAUSS (2)  Great Arithmetic Used Solving Systems

PYTHAGORAS  Predict Your Triangle's Hypotenuse... Assuming Geometrically Orthogonal  RightAngled  Sides. 
Angela Brett

PYTHAGORAS (3)  Perhaps You Think He Achieved Greatness Of Reputation Alone... Sorry! 
Angela Brett, because much of the mathematics attributed to Pythagoras was actually by other members of the Pythagorean sect.

WOLFRAM  Went Overboard Looking For Random Automata? Maybe. 
Angela Brett, referring to Stephen Wolfram and his huge tome 'A New Kind of Science' on cellular automata and similar constructs. I don't think there's really such a thing as going overboard investigating something in science... even if the hypothesis turns out to be completely wrong, somebody has to thoroughly investigate it so that we know it's wrong, and more than likely they'll discover something that is useful in the process. At the very least, absurdly wrong ideas make good material for http://OldScientist.com (if only anyone had time to write for it.)
