Person: Bottasso, Matteo
Matteo Bottasso was an Italian mathematician who used the vector calculus in studying problems in geometry, mechanics and physics.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
- Arriving back in Italy Bottasso was appointed as an assistant professor of projective geometry at the University of Bologna.
- Bottasso studied differential geometry and mechanics but also made contributions to actuarial and financial mathematics.
- Torino, 1912) Bottasso underlined the analogy between vector homography and integral equations, and used vector homography to solve integral equations.
- Bottasso gave lectures to the high school teachers on numerical calculus in March 1915.
- An interesting episode regarding Bottasso reported in the paper La Valle Pesio relating to the time when he was teaching at the Turin Military Academy.
