When Andre-Marie Ampere was a child, he was a prodigy. He mastered many mathematical subjects at a very young age.

He was accepted into many prestigious academies, including the Royal Society of London and the Royal Society of Edinburgh. He is buried in the prestigious Montmartre Cemetery in Paris.

Ampere started his career as a mathematics tutor in 1797.

During this time, he continued to research mathematics and published his famous work, 'Considerations sur la thématique du jeu' (1802).

Ampere also made numerous contributions to the field of chemistry.

His work on hydrofluoric acid led him to suggest that this unknown element was composed of a hydrogen and an unknown element. He later suggested that the new element could be isolated using electrolysis.

This idea was later adopted by the French chemist Henri Moissan, who isolated fluorine in 1816.

Among his many achievements, Ampere discovered the inverse-square law in electricity and magnetism.

This discovery helped pave the way for the theoretical development of electromagnetics during the nineteenth century.

His work has been featured in several notable books and encyclopedias, including the Collier Encyclopedia and the Dictionary of Scientific Biography.
