Arthur Cayley, 1821-1895: An English mathematician who founded the theory of quantics (algebraic functions with two or more variables), Cayley also devised a noncommutative matrix algebra and contributed significantly to quantum mechanics and the theory of manifolds. Cayley was one who believed mathematics is embedded in man's mind, as a contrast to others (Plato, for instance) who saw it as existing in a world outside of man. In an address to the British Association for the Advancement of Science (1883), Caley said that "We are...in possession of cognitions, a priori, independent, not of this or that experience, but absolutely so of all experience. These cognitions are a contribution of the mind to the interpretation of experience."
