Portions of this question have been accidentally contributed by Rajiv, a batchmate, and alumnus. So, a pseudo-guest question of sorts.
A notable man of science, shown in pic 1, is quite famous for creating a simple means of representation of characteristics ( or should I say traits), particular to his profession. It is therefore named after him.
Mr.pic 1 and Mr.pic 2 were quite the chums, playing cricket together etcetera.
Mr.pic 2 was a major stud in his field, known for making level-statements about mathematics, logic, and philosophy in general. We, however, know him for a different reason, which I shall not dwell into further.
Mr.pic1 posed a problem in his field to Mr.pic 2, which had a current solution proposed by the chap in pic3, a celebrity in the field of statistics.
This solution wasn’t very acceptable to Mr.pic1, since it didn’t agree with his school of thought.
Mr.pic2, sent a letter to a reputed journal in the field of Mr.pic1, correcting the mathematical errors committed by Mr.pic3 while attempting this very ‘ simple ‘ problem ( his own words).
So overall, a very interdisciplinary question.
Identify Mr.pic1, the computational technique devised by him, Mr.pic2, and Mr. pic3.
