Person: Nassau, Jason John
Jason J Nassau was an American mathematician who published papers in both mathematics and astronomy.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Among Nassau's achievements are his discovery of a cluster of 9,000 stars, his codiscovery of two novae in 1961, and his development of a technique for studying the distribution of red stars.
 Further details are given in J J Nassau's obituary, written by Victor M Blanco, which appeared in the Quarterly Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society, volume 7 (1966).
 Among the honours given to Nassau, we mention that the Nassau Astronomical Station at the Warner and Swasey Observatory is named after him.
 Also the Jason J Nassau Prize was established by the Cleveland Astronomical Society in 1965.
 His name is given to two astronomical objects: Nassau crater on the Moon is named after him, as is asteroid 9240 Nassau, discovered on 31 May 1997.
 Nassau joined the American Mathematical Society in February 1921 (he was one of 114 people who joined at that time).
 He had already joined the Edinburgh Mathematical Society in June 1919.
 Finally we list a few of Nassau's papers: Questions and Discussions: Discussions: Evaluation of the Determinant ∣1/(r+s−1)!∣1/(r + s  1)! ∣1/(r+s−1)!∣ (1924); Some extensions of the generalized Kronecker symbol (1926); Questions and Discussions: Discussions: Concerning a Theorem in Determinants (1927); and (with O E Brown) A Navigation Computer (1947).
Born 29 March 1893, Smyrna, (now Izmir) Turkey. Died 11 May 1965, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
