gauss - Google Search Gauss was an amazing man, equally comfortable in the math and physics worlds. He is famous amongst mathematicians for being a man of unrivalled genius who very, very rarely ever wrote proofs of his work (and when he proved something, he often erased the steps he used to get his results). In physics, he's best known for Gauss' Law.

Empyreance VI - Worlds of Infinity & Eternity Infinite micro & macro universe. Pythagoras, Descartes, Newton, Leibniz, Copernicus, Kepler, Gauss, Cantor, Pascal, Napier "The wisdom of the Lord is infinite .... Ye heavens, sing His praises! Sun, moon & planets glorify Him... Celestial harmonies, all ye who comprehend His marvellous works, ...... To Him be praise, honour, and glory throughout eternity." Kepler - The Harmony of the World - 1619
Stigler's History of Statistics is very enjoyable and walks you through the painful, groping arguments of Bernoulli, DeMoivre, Gauss, Laplace, etc as they sketched out the foundations of statistics. I especially enjoy walking through a real problem as it was originally solved. Sure you can get to the Law of Large Numbers in a handful of steps from Chebyshev's inequality, but it's so much more instructive to see how Bernoulli attacked the problem (unsuccessfully!).
In this lecture, Professor Leonard Susskind of the Stanford University Physic's Department discusses dark energy, the tendency of it to tear atoms apart, and Gauss's Law. Einstein's Theory (PHY 27) discusses the different applications of Einstein's Theory of Relativity in particle physics, including Newtonian, Galilean, and Guassian laws; p...
