Gregorio Ricci-Curbastro. 1853-1925. Italian mathematician who invented the field of absolute differential calculus. This was a more general extension of work initiated by Carl Gauss and, as the foundation of tensor analysis, was used extensively by Albert Einstein in developing the theory of relativity.
