Great Hungarians

Walking a bit further from the Eiffel Palace towards the city center we will find 2 plaques commemorating the birthplace of John von Neumann.
It is very good to remember the great people of a country and he was one of the many Hungarians whom we can be really proud of. He was a child prodigy, spoke many languages and became an outstanding mathematician who made important contributions to a number of fields, including mathematics, physics (quantum physics), economics (game theory), computing and statistics. Maybe his most important contribution was to lay down the foundations of the modern computers (Neumann-principles).
Interestingly he attended a high school (Budapest-Fasori Lutheran Secondary School ) that had many students who later also became famous scientists, e.g. Jenő Wigner (physicist) and János Harsányi (economist), both of them Nobel-prize winners.
