Giuseppe Peano

Giuseppe Peano (1858–1932) was an Italian mathematician and logician.

Peano's Formulario Mathematico was an encyclopedia of mathematical formulae and theorems expressed in a symbolic language. Many of the symbols that Peano used in the Formulario are still in use today.

In 1903, Peano announced that he had developed an auxiliary language, Latino sine flexione, which was a version of Latin with heavily simplified grammar. Peano wrote some of his works in Latino sine flexione afterwords.

The Peano axioms, a set of axioms for natural numbers that Peano published, is named for him. Peano's descriptions of mathematics maintained a separation of mathematical and logical symbolization, and made use of the symbolization developed by Gottlob Frege.

Along with Bertrand Russell, Peano can largely be credited for brining attention to the logical system developed by Frege.
