Person: Schauder, Juliusz Pawel
Julius Schauder was a Polish mathematician known for his work in functional analysis, partial differential equations and mathematical physics.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
- After the collapse of Austria, Schauder joined a new Polish army which was being organised in France.
- He returned to Poland with this army in 1919, by this time the country of Poland had been reestablished and it was to a Polish Lwów that Schauder went.
- Schauder had to teach in high school in order to supplement a meager income as lecturer ...
- Schauder published fixed point theorems for Banach spaces in 1930.
- While Schauder was in Paris he collaborated with J Leray and their joint work led to a paper Topologie et équations fonctionelles Ⓣ(Topology and functional equations) published in the Annales scientifiques de l'École Normale Supérieure.
- By the time Schauder received this prize his final publication (1937) had appeared in print.
- In particular, Schauder's formulation of a fixed point theorem originated a new, extremely fruitful method in the theory of differential equations, known as Schauder's method ...
- The topological method developed in the 1934 Leray-Schauder paper ...
- Schauder was treated well by the new Soviet administration.
- Schauder sent pleas for help to Hopf and Heisenberg saying he had many important results but no paper to write them on.
- We should comment on the picture of Schauder.
- Schauder was there, as were Aleksandrov, Lefschetz, Borsuk, and some dozen other topologists.
Born 21 September 1899, Lemberg, Austrian Empire (now Lviv, Ukraine). Died September 1943, Lwow, Poland (now Ukraine).
