Kurt Friedrich Gödel (1906 - 1978) was an Austrian-American mathematician and logician best known for proving the Gödel's incompleteness theorems. He showed that within any axiomatic mathematical system there are propositions that can not be (dis)proved using the axioms of the system. He is generally considered as one of the greatest logician of all time.

René Descartes (1596 - 1650) was a French mathematician and philosopher who in order to unify the hitherto largely separate disciplines of algebra and geometry invented coordinate geometry (modern term: 'analytic geometry'). The Cartesian coordinate system is named after him ('Cartesian' /pronounced: kɑrˈtiʒən/ is the adjectival form of 'Descartes').
