Person: Morishima, Taro
Taro Morishima was a Japanese mathematician who worked in algebra and number theory.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 There was a major earthquake and fire in 1923 and when Morishima entered the Department of Mathematics of the College of Science of the university it had been reconstructed.
 Morishima had been very active in mathematical research from the time he graduated in 1928.
 All his papers are full of good ideas but they are extremely difficult to read since Morishima did not present enough detail.
 Morishima's high research activity seems to have greatly lessened after 1935.
 In 1942 Morishima was appointed as professor at the Army Military Academy.
 We mentioned above that Morishima published one paper on Fermat's Last Theorem in 1952.
 Finally let us mention Morishima's 1966 paper On the second factor of the class number of the cyclotomic field.
Born 22 April 1903, Wakayama, Japan. Died 8 August 1989, Tokyo, Japan.
