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

BackgroundEdit

Sometimes referred to as the "Prince of mathematics" (Latin: "Princeps mathematicorum"), Gauss formulated mathematical descriptions of the magnetic effect used by magnetic accelerators. These understandings made it possible to produce a coilgun, subsequently named the Gauss rifle, which utilizes a series of magnetic fields to launch ferromagnetic projectiles at great speeds.

AppearancesEdit

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