    I think (in addition to Newton, Gauß, Euler and Leibniz, who have already been mentioned) Jacobi and Hilbert are quite easily recognizable. If you know a little bit about maths, you can also spot Fermat, Möbius and Klein without ever having seen a picture of them before.

  6. Also: Weierstraß, Dedekind and H. A. Schwarz should totally be in this picture!
