    Any list narrowing the field down to 10 would be arbitrary and very subjective. For some very good ones take a look at winners of the Fields Medal and Abel Prizes. But there are first-rate mathematicians who have won neither.

    This is not entirely easy to name 10 best mathematician alive today as each mathematician usually works on one focussed subtopic in a vast branch of topics known as mathematics. For example Terence Tao is quite exceptional in his area of mathematics he is working on which is Number theory and so on and on.
