Carl Friedrich Gauss (April 30, 1777 – February 23, 1855) was a German mathematician and physical scientist.

BackgroundEdit

Sometimes referred to as the Princeps mathematicorum (Latin: Prince of mathematics), Gauss formulated mathematical descriptions of the magnetic effect used by magnetic accelerators. These understandings made it possible to produce a so-called Gauss rifle or coilgun, a series of magnetic fields that are used to launch a ferromagnetic projectile at great speeds.

AppearancesEdit

Carl Friedrich Gauss is mentioned only in Fallout 2, the Fallout 3 add-on Operation: Anchorage, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, Fallout 76 and Fallout Tactics.
