Person: Filep, László
László Filep was a Hungarian mathematician who specialised in history of mathematics.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 The elementary school in Csaszlo had a single room in which all pupils in different years were educated, and Filep studied at this school until he reached the age to attend secondary school.
 Filep graduated from Mátészalka Secondary School and entered the Kossuth Lajos Tudományegyetem, or the Lajos Kossuth University in Debrecen as it is called in English.
 Filep graduated from the Kossuth University in 1964, qualifying as a secondary teacher of mathematics and physics.
 In 1973 Filep was appointed as a lecturer at the College of Nyíregyháza.
 But this was not Filep's first publication, for he had published a number of articles in the prestigious Hungarian popular scientific magazine, Termeszet Vilaga (The World of Nature).
 Let us look in slightly more detail at three of Filep's articles on the history of mathematics by quoting his own summary to these papers.
 We must not give the impression that Filep's only research interest was in the history of mathematics for he also published a long series of papers on fuzzy groups, some written with his collaborator Gyula Iulius Maurer, beginning in 1987.
 Changes in the Hungarian system of doctorates in the early 1990s meant that Filep felt the dr.
 Filep brought Davis from Vienna to Miskolc so that he could attend both conferences.
 Shortly after the Miskolc conference, Filep collapsed and died during a lecture that he was giving at the Sapientia College of Theology of Religious Orders in Budapest.
Born 6 December 1941, Csaszlo, SzabolcsSzatmarBereg, Hungary. Died 19 November 2004, Budapest, Hungary.
