A Panorama of Hungarian Mathematics in the Twentieth by Janos (Ed.) Horvath,Janos Horvath

By Janos (Ed.) Horvath,Janos Horvath

an excellent interval of Hungarian arithmetic begun in 1900 while Lipót Fejér stumbled on the summability of Fourier series.This was once by way of the discoveries of his disciples in Fourier research and within the concept of analytic capabilities. whilst Frederic (Frigyes) Riesz created sensible research and Alfred Haar gave the 1st instance of wavelets. Later the subjects investigated by means of Hungarian mathematicians broadened significantly, and incorporated topology, operator conception, differential equations, likelihood, and so on. the current quantity, the 1st of 2, provides probably the most outstanding effects accomplished within the 20th century through Hungarians in research, geometry and stochastics. The publication is available to an individual with a minimal wisdom of arithmetic. it truly is supplemented with an essay at the heritage of Hungary within the 20th century and biographies of these mathematicians who're now not energetic. a listing of all individuals noted within the chapters concludes the volume.
