Person: Genocchi, Angelo
Angelo Genocchi was an Italian mathematician who worked on number theory, series and the integral calculus.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Before the Austrians arrived in Piacenza Genocchi, greatly disappointed at the turn of events, and other liberals, left the city.
 Genocchi went to live in Turin, refusing requests from his friends to return to Piacenza saying he would not return until freedom returned.
 From 1859 Genocchi held the Chair of Algebra and Complementary Geometry at Turin, then the following year he moved to the Chair of Higher Analysis.
 The main research topics which Genocchi worked on were number theory, series and the integral calculus.
 In 1882 Genocchi broke his kneecap and Peano took over his teaching.
 The kneecap was broken while Genocchi was on his holidays in September 1882.
 In 1884 Differential Calculus and Fundamentals of Integral Calculus was published under Genocchi's name.
 This book was based on Genocchi's lectures but was largely the work of Peano.
 The book was important and widely aclaimed despite some unease over whether Peano had Genocchi's full agreement to publish the text with the additions he made.
 Despite making a partial recovery, during which time he resumed his teaching duties, soon Genocchi's health failed again and he slowly gave up all his activities.
Born 5 March 1817, Piacenza, Habsburg Empire (now Italy). Died 7 March 1889, Turin, Italy.
