**Archimedes of Syracuse** (Greek: Άρχιμήδης c. 287 BC – c. 212 BC)

was an ancient Greek mathematician, physicist and engineer. Although little is known of his life, he is regarded as one of the leading scientists in classical antiquity. In addition to making discoveries in the fields of mathematics and geometry, he is credited with designing machines that were well ahead of their time. He laid the foundations of hydrostatics, and explained the principle of the lever, the device on which mechanics is based. His early advances in calculus included the first known summation of an infinite series with a method that is still used today.

*Archimides was the one who came out screaming Eureka after he discovered the principle of buoyancy while taking a bath.
So I dedicated this virtual pool to ideas after him!*
