- Antonio Luigi Gaudenzio Guiseppe Cremona(December 7, 1830 - June 10, 1903) was an Italian mathematician. His life was devoted to the study of geometry and reforming advanced mathematical teaching in Italy. He notably enriched our knowledge of algebraic curves and algebraic surfaces. As early as 1856 Cremona had begun to contribute to the Annali di scienze matematiche e fisiche, and to the Annali di matematica, of which he eventually became joint editor. Papers by him appeared in the mathematical journals of Italy, France, Germany and England, and he published several important works, many of which have been translated into other languages.
