- 8. Luitzen Egbertus Jan Brouwer Born : 27 Feb 1881 in Overschie (now a suburb of Rotterdam), Netherlands Died : 2 Dec 1966 in Blaricum , Netherlands
- 10. Biography
- 11. <ul><li>usually known by L.E.J. Brouwer form of his name with full initials, but he was known to his friends as Bertus, an abbreviation of the second of his three forenames </li></ul>
- 12. <ul><li>Brouwer studied at the (municipal) University of Amsterdam where his most important teachers were Diederik Korteweg (of the Korteweg-de Vries equation) and, especially philosophically, Gerrit Mannoury. </li></ul>
- 13. Korteweg
- 14. Gerrit Mannoury
- 15. <ul><li>In philosophy, his brainchild is intuitionism , a revisionist foundation of mathematics. </li></ul>
- 16. <ul><li>The implications are twofold. </li></ul>
- 17. <ul><li>First, it leads to a form of constructive mathematics, in which large parts of classical mathematics are rejected. </li></ul>
- 18. <ul><li>Second, the reliance on a philosophy of mind introduces features that are absent from classical mathematics as well as from other forms of constructive mathematics: unlike those, intuitionistic mathematics is not a proper part of classical mathematics. </li></ul>
- 19. <ul><li>Brouwer's principal students were Maurits Belinfante and Arend Heyting; the latter, in turn, was the teacher of Anne Troelstra and Dirk van Dalen. </li></ul>
- 20. <ul><li>Brouwer's classes were also attended by Max Euwe, the later world chess champion, who published a game-theoretical paper on chess from the intuitionistic point of view (Euwe, 1929), and who would much later deliver Brouwer's funeral speech. </li></ul>
- 21. <ul><li>Among Brouwer's assistants were Heyting, Hans Freudenthal, Karl Menger, and Witold Hurewicz, the latter two of whom were not intuitionistically inclined. </li></ul>
- 22. <ul><li>The most influential supporter of Brouwer's intuitionism outside the Netherlands at the time was, for a number of years, Hermann Weyl . </li></ul>
- 23. Hermann Weyl
- 24. <ul><li>Brouwer seems to have been an independent and brilliant man of high moral standards, but with an exaggerated sense of justice, making him at times pugnacious. As a consequence, in his life he energetically fought many battles. </li></ul>
- 25. <ul><li>From 1914 to 1928, Brouwer was member of the editiorial board of the Mathematische Annalen , and he was the founding editor of Compositio Mathematica , which first appeared in 1934. </li></ul>
- 26. <ul><li>He was a member of, among others, the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences, the Royal Society in London, the Preußische Akademie der Wissenschaften in Berlin, and the Akademie der Wissenschaften in Göttingen. </li></ul>
- 27. <ul><li>Brouwer received honorary doctorates from the universities of Oslo (1929) and Cambridge (1954), and was made Knight in the Order of the Dutch Lion in 1932. </li></ul>
- 28. <ul><li>Brouwer's archive is kept at the Department of Philosophy, Utrecht University, the Netherlands. An edition of correspondence and manuscripts is in preparation. </li></ul>
- 29. Contribution
- 30. Luitzen Egbertus Jan Brouwer <ul><li>founded modern topology by establishing, for example, the topological invariance of dimension and the fixpoint theorem . </li></ul>
- 31. <ul><li>gave the first correct definition of dimension </li></ul>
- 32. Brouwer's Fix Point Theorem
- 33. <ul><li>Theorem 1 Every continuous mapping f of a closed n -ball to itself has a fixed point. Alternatively, Let be a non empty compact convex set and a continuous function. Then f has a fix point, i.e. f ( x )= x for some </li></ul>
- 34. <ul><li>founded the doctrine of mathematical intuitionism, which views mathematics as the formulation of mental constructions that are governed by self-evident laws. He became an honorary member of the EMS in 1954. </li></ul>
- 35. Questions & Answer
- 36. What is topology ?
- 37. Topology <ul><li>the mathematical study of the properties that are preserved through deformations, twistings, and stretchings of objects </li></ul>
- 38. What is intuitionism ?
- 39. <ul><li>views mathematics as a free activity of the mind, independent of any language or Platonic realm of objects, and therefore bases mathematics on a philosophy of mind. </li></ul>Intuitionism
- 40. Andrey Nikolaevich Kolmogorov Born : 25 April 1903 in Tambov, Tambov province, Russia Died : 20 Oct 1987 in Moscow, Russia
- 42. Biography
- 43. <ul><li>Andrei Nikolaevich Kolmogorov 's parents were not married and his father took no part in his upbringing. </li></ul>
- 44. <ul><li>His father Nikolai Kataev , the son of a priest, was an agriculturist who was exiled. </li></ul>
- 45. <ul><li>He returned after the Revolution to head a Department in the Agricultural Ministry but died in fighting in 1919. </li></ul>
- 46. <ul><li>Kolmogorov's mother also, tragically, took no part in his upbringing since she died in childbirth at Kolmogorov's birth. </li></ul>
- 47. <ul><li>His mother's sister, Vera Yakovlena, brought Kolmogorov up and he always had the deepest affection for her. </li></ul>
- 48. <ul><li>In fact it was chance that had Kolmogorov born in Tambov since the family had no connections with that place. </li></ul>
- 49. <ul><li>Kolmogorov's mother had been on a journey from the Crimea back to her home in Tunoshna near Yaroslavl and it was in the home of his maternal grandfather in Tunoshna that Kolmogorov spent his youth. </li></ul>
- 50. <ul><li>Kolmogorov's name came from his grandfather, Yakov Stepanovich Kolmogorov, and not from his own father. Yakov Stepanovich was from the nobility, a difficult status to have in Russia at this time, and there is certainly stories told that an illegal printing press was operated from his house. </li></ul>
- 51. <ul><li>Kolmogorov graduated from Moscow State University in 1925 and then became a professor there in 1931. </li></ul>
- 52. <ul><li>In 1939 he was elected to the Soviet Academy of Sciences, receiving the Lenin Prize in 1965 and the Order of Lenin on seven separate occasions. </li></ul>
- 53. Contribution
- 54. <ul><li>He laid the mathematical foundations of probability theory and the algorithmic theory of randomness and made crucial contributions to the foundations of statistical mechanics , stochastic processes , information theory , fluid mechanics , and nonlinear dynamics . </li></ul>
- 55. <ul><li>All of these areas, and their interrelationships, underlie complex systems, as they are studied today. </li></ul>
- 56. <ul><li>His work on reformulating probability started with a 1933 paper in which he built up probability theory in a rigorous way from fundamental axioms, similar to Euclid's treatment of geometry. </li></ul>
- 57. <ul><li>Kolmogorov went on to study the motion of the planets and turbulent fluid flows, later publishing two papers in 1941 on turbulence that even today are of fundamental importance. </li></ul>
- 58. <ul><li>In 1954 he developed his work on dynamical systems in relation to planetary motion, thus demonstrating the vital role of probability theory in physics and re-opening the study of apparent randomness in deterministic systems, much along the lines originally conceived by Henri Poincare . </li></ul>
- 59. <ul><li>In 1965 he introduced the algorithmic theory of randomness via a measure of complexity, now referred to Kolmogorov Complexity . </li></ul>
- 60. <ul><li>According to Kolmogorov, the complexity of an object is the length of the shortest computer program that can reproduce the object. </li></ul>
- 61. <ul><li>Random objects, in his view, were their own shortest description. </li></ul>
- 62. <ul><li>Whereas, periodic sequences have low Kolmogorov complexity, given by the length of the smallest repeating "template" sequence they contain. </li></ul>
- 63. <ul><li>Kolmogorov's notion of complexity is a measure of randomness, one that is closely related to Claude Shannon 's entropy rate of an information source. </li></ul>
- 64. <ul><li>Kolmogorov had many interests outside mathematics research, notable examples being the quantitative analysis of structure in the poetry of the Russian author Pushkin, studies of agrarian development in 16th and 17th century Novgorod, and mathematics education. </li></ul>
- 65. Questions & Answer
- 66. What place did he occupy among all the Soviet mathematicians in the number of foreign academies and scientific societies that have elected him as member?
- 67. First Place
- 68. Where did he graduate?

- 80. <ul><li>He took a post at the Prussian Academy of Sciences, where he could continue his research and lecture at the University of Berlin. </li></ul>
- 81. <ul><li>In 1915, Einstein perfected his general theory of relativity, summing up his theory with the mathematical equation E=mc² (energy equals mass times the speed of light squared). </li></ul>
- 82. <ul><li>His findings on relativity were published in The Principle of Relativity , Sidelights on Relativity , and The Meaning of Relativity . </li></ul>
- 83. <ul><li>In November 1919, the Royal Society of London announced that their experiment conducted during the solar eclipse of that year had confirmed the predictions Einstein made in his general theory of relativity. </li></ul>
- 84. <ul><li>The implications of this announcement shook the world of science and earned Einstein the international acclaim he had long deserved. </li></ul>

- 110. Richard Dedekind Born : 6 Oct 1831 in Braunschweig, duchy of Braunschweig (now Germany) Died : 12 Feb 1916 in Braunschweig, duchy of Braunschweig (now Germany)
- 112. Biography
- 113. <ul><li>Much of his education took place in Brunswick as well, where he first attended school and then, for two years, the local technical university. </li></ul>
- 114. <ul><li>In 1850, he transferred to the University of Göttingen, a center for scientific research in Europe at the time. </li></ul>
- 115. <ul><li>Carl Friedrich Gauss, one of the greatest mathematicians of all time, taught in Göttingen, and Dedekind became his last doctoral student. </li></ul>
- 116. <ul><li>He wrote a dissertation in mathematics under Gauss, finished in 1852. </li></ul>
- 117. <ul><li>As was customary, he also wrote a second dissertation ( Habilitation ), completed in 1854, shortly after that of his colleague and friend Bernhard Riemann. </li></ul>
- 118. <ul><li>Dedekind stayed in Göttingen for four more years, as an unsalaried lecturer ( Privatdozent ). </li></ul>
- 119. <ul><li>During that time he was strongly influenced by P.G. Lejeune-Dirichlet, another renowned mathematician in Göttingen, and by Riemann, then a rising star. </li></ul>
- 120. <ul><li>(Later, Dedekind did important editorial work for Gauss, Dirichlet, and Riemann.) In 1858, he moved to the Polytechnic in Zurich (ETH Zürich), Switzerland, to take up his first salaried position. </li></ul>
- 121. <ul><li>He returned to Brunswick in 1862, where he became professor at the local university and taught until his retirement in 1896. </li></ul>
- 122. <ul><li>In this later period, he published most of his major works. </li></ul>
- 123. <ul><li>He also had further interactions with important mathematicians; thus, he was in correspondence with Georg Cantor, collaborated with Heinrich Weber, and developed an intellectual rivalry with Leopold Kronecker. </li></ul>
- 124. <ul><li>He stayed in his hometown until the end of his life, in 1916. </li></ul>
- 125. Contribution
- 126. <ul><li>developed a major redefinition of irrational numbers in terms of arithmetic concepts. </li></ul>
- 127. <ul><li>Although not fully recognized in his lifetime, his treatment of the ideas of the infinite and of what constitutes a real number continues to influence modern mathematics. </li></ul>
- 128. <ul><li>While teaching, Dedekind developed the idea that both rational and irrational numbers could form a continuum (with no gaps) of real numbers, provided that the real numbers have a one-to-one relationship with points on a line. </li></ul>
- 129. <ul><li>He said that an irrational number would then be that boundary value that separates two especially constructed collections of rational numbers. </li></ul>
- 130. Dedekind Cut <ul><li>concept advanced in 1872 by the German mathematician Richard Dedekind that combines an arithmetic formulation of the idea of continuity with a rigorous distinction between rational and irrational numbers </li></ul>
- 131. <ul><li>He reasoned that the real numbers form an ordered continuum , so that any two numbers x and y must satisfy one and only one of the conditions x < y , x = y , or x > y . </li></ul>
- 132. <ul><li>He postulated a cut that separates the continuum into two subsets, say X and Y , such that if x is any member of X and y is any member of Y , then x < y . </li></ul>
- 133. <ul><li>If the cut is made so that X has a largest rational member or Y a least member, then the cut corresponds to a rational number. </li></ul>
- 134. <ul><li>If, however, the cut is made so that X has no largest rational member and Y no least rational member, then the cut corresponds to an irrational number. </li></ul>
- 135. <ul><li>Dedekind developed his arithmetical rendering of irrational numbers in 1872 in his Stetigkeit und Irrationale Zahlen (Eng. trans., “Continuity and Irrational Numbers,” published in Essays on the Theory of Numbers ). </li></ul>
- 136. <ul><li>He also proposed, as did the German mathematician Georg Cantor, two years later, that a set—a collection of objects or components—is infinite if its components may be arranged in a one-to-one relationship with the components of one of its subsets. </li></ul>
- 137. <ul><li>By supplementing the geometric method in analysis, Dedekind contributed substantially to the modern treatment of the infinitely large and the infinitely small. </li></ul>
- 138. Questions & Answer
- 139. What is an irrational number ?
- 140. Irrational Number <ul><li>any real number that cannot be expressed as the quotient of two integers </li></ul>
- 141. Who was his teacher in the University of Göttingen?

- 177. <ul><li>From the end of 1941 through the remainder of the Nazi occupation (July 1944), Banach worked feeding lice in Prof. Weigel’s Institute in Lwow. </li></ul>
- 178. <ul><li>After the Soviets reentered Lwow, Banach contacted his Soviet friend Sobolev, who wrote about this encounter: "...and despite the grave illness that was undercutting his strength, Banach's eyes were still lively. </li></ul>
- 179. <ul><li>He remained the same sociable, cheerful and extraordinarily well-meaning and charming Stefan Banach whom I had seen in Lvov before the war. </li></ul>
- 180. <ul><li>That is how he remains in my memory: with a great sense of humor, an energetic human being, a beautiful soul and a great talent..." Banach died of lung cancer in Lwow in 1945. </li></ul>

we all give great tribute and feel proud on all mathematician but still i wonder that still we are unable to value of tan 90

brahmgupta even mahavira also confirm that N / 0 is N

we still use N/0 is not define or infinite

In maths every where we put condition that in fraction , denominator must be greater than zero why ?
