Joseph Lagrange

Few mathematicians have made as significant an impact on the field as Lagrange. In addition to his immense legacy, he is one of 72 names inscribed on the Eiffel Tower, and he is buried in the Pantheon, which serves as the country’s official tomb for notable Frenchmen.

From 1772 to 1785, Lagrange was primarily responsible for developing the science of partial differential equations. It is now being used to model heat, sound, electrodynamics, and other difficult-to-model information. Furthermore, he completely reformulated and simplified Newton’s equations of classical mechanics, which were previously complex. Finally, he made significant progress in finding a solution to the three-body issue, which is considered one of the most challenging problems in physics.

Imagine that your barber’s name is Zeno and he is doing 1/2 off haircuts. Probably he would do a geometric haircut. This is hilarious.
