Go to 200. On the birthday of Carl Friedrich Gauss in 1977 a 20-Mark commemorative coin appeared in the GDR. On the side of the picture it shows a portrait of the mathematician Gauss. The coin was minted from 500 silver in the minting quality uncirculated.
Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777-1855) was a German mathematician. In 1807 he became a university professor and director of the observatory in Göttingen.
Gauss developed the basics of mathematical statistics (method of least squares) and the modern equalization calculation. Numerous mathematical functions, integral theorems, the Gaussian bell curve, first solutions for elliptic integrals and the Gaussian Easter formula go back to him.
