Guest question from p vs np. Thanks dude!

1. was a brilliant mathematician. His prowess in the field of number theory was well regarded. So deep was his understanding, people who knew him called it “scary”. He had a fine taste for music, was quite the bibliophile and was also known to self tutor different languages so as to read mathematical journals written in it.

When it came to his last years, it resembled the lives of both, 2 and his namesake X.

Id 1. , whom people know little of, but whom Google may spit out by mistake, when looking for X.
