Caption: Portrait of T.Levi-Civita (1873-1942), Italian mathematician. Levi-Civita's late work was dominated by the concepts of Riemann geometry, Euclidian geometry applied to higher-dimensional space. Levi-Civita combined the concept of absolute differential calculus with his own "parallel transport" to formulate the tensor calculus. This is an invaluable tool in the study of cosmology.
