  Carl Friedrich Gauss - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gauss was a child prodigy, of whom there are many anecdotes pertaining to his astounding precocity while a mere toddler, and made his first ground-breaking mathematical discoveries while still a teenager.
Gauss was born in Braunschweig, in the Duchy of Braunschweig-Lüneburg (now part of Lower Saxony, Germany), as the only son of uneducated lower-class parents.
Gauss predicted correctly the position at which it could be found again, and it was rediscovered by Franz Xaver von Zach on December 31, 1801 in Gotha, and one day later by Heinrich Olbers in Bremen.

Gauss' talents came to the notice of a school master hen he quickly solved the task of adding the numbers from 1 to 100 and later he received the sponsorship of the Duke of Braunschweig to study at College, where he maintained an interest in Philology as well as Mathematics.
Gauss went on to be awarded a Doctorate in Philosophy at the University of Helmstedt in 1799, with a thesis which proved that every rational integer function of one variable can be resolved into real factors of the first or second degree.
Gauss asserted that "Mathematics is the Queen of Sciences, and the Theory of Numbers is the Queen of Mathematics".

 Gauss manual: preface
GAUSS is a complex language with a large number of specialised functions for dealing with matrices.
A competent user of GAUSS will find little difficulty in interpreting the information in the manual on eigenvector calculations, for example; by contrast, a user taught only how to use these functions may well be defeated by the task of incorporating these functions in a useful program.
New GAUSS users should be aware that there is a large body of routines available which are outwith the scope of this guide.

 Timberlake Consultants - GAUSS
Designed for computationally intensive tasks, the GAUSS system is ideally suited for the researcher who does not have the time required to develop programs in C or FORTRAN but finds that most statistical or mathematical "packages" are not flexible or powerful enough to perform complicated analysis or to work on large problems.
GAUSS can be used in either interactively for short one-off commands or by creating large programs consisting of several files and libraries of functions, or anything in between.
GAUSS has over 400 mathematical functions built in, including LINPACK, EISPACK and BLAS routines, factorizations, decompositions, eigenvalues, distributions and equation solving functions, to provide you with all the tools you need to solve your most difficult problems.

 POWERLABS's Gauss Gun Division!
Gauss Guns, also known as Coil Guns, derive their name from the Mathematician Gauss, who's name is a measure of magnetic field strength (and since the propellant force in a gauss gun is a magnetic field, it makes sense to call them by the unit of that field).
The scientific definition of a gauss gun is that of an "Asynchronous linear induction motor".
However, what differs a gauss gun from just a regular solenoid is that in the gauss gun the core is allowed to move freely into and than THROUGH the solenoid.

Like Plato, Gauss also recognized it were not sufficient to simply state his discovery, without a polemical attack on the Aristotelean falsehoods that had become so popular among his contemporaries.
