Niels Abel

Niels Henrik Abel was a mathematician who lived in Norway. He discovered that the binomial theorem holds true for all numbers when he was 16. His discovery that it is impossible to solve quintic equations with radicals occurred when he was 19 years old. In addition, he developed the concept of group theory. The Abel Prize was established in his honor. Abel contracted tuberculosis in December 1828 and died five months later in Paris due to the disease.
