    1. Grigori Perelman, extraordinary mathematician

    2. Alexander Khalifman, Russian Grand Master, winner of the ’99 FIDE Championship.

    3. Yuri Matiyasevich, mathematician and computer scientist who solved Hilbert’s tenth problem.

    4. Boris ‘Purushottama’ Grebenshikov, father of Russia’s rock and roll — Kinda out of the domain of all the Drama! Intrigue! Geekiness! and an exception to the asnwer.. Nevertheless included

    Connect: The Saint Petersburg Lyceum 239, the prestigious high school in Saint Petersburg, Russia that specializes in mathematics and physics and churns out brilliant minds such as above, every year.

    The connect is the St. Petersburg Lyceum. The famous alumni amongst others — 1. perelman, solved (?) Poincare conjecture, 2. khalifman, chess champ in 1999, 3. yuri matiyasevich, hilberts tenth problem, 4. BG grebenschikov, russian rock star. Nice question :) Like the math and chess and music connect……
