Person: Robinson (3), Abraham
Abraham Robinson was a Polishborn mathematician best known for the development of nonstandard analysis.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Abraham Robinson senior was also a highly talented man.
 Hedwig Robinson was a teacher and she brought up her two sons in Germany until 1933 when Abraham was fourteen years old.
 Hedwig, Abraham and Saul Robinson avoided the problems that Jews would have in Germany from 1933 by starting a new life in Palestine.
 There Robinson completed his schooling and, in 1935, began studying mathematics under Fraenkel and Levitzki at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
 Robinson was a brilliant student and, after graduating in 1939, he was awarded a scholarship to allow him to study at the Sorbonne in Paris.
 As an undergraduate at the Hebrew University Robinson has been interested in both algebra and mathematical logic.
 By now Robinson was a world leading authority in aerodynamics yet he continued with his interest in mathematical logic.
 A collection of papers Model theory and algebra was published in 1975 as a memorial tribute to Robinson.
 For Robinson was more than an excellent mathematician.
 Robinson was a leading expert in remarkably different areas of mathematics.
 Only one of his books deals with applied mathematics but it may surprise mathematicians who think of Robinson only as a mathematical logician to realise that almost half his papers are on applied mathematics, particularly on aerodynamics.
 Robinson is best known, however, for his work on mathematical logic.
 Robinson's contributions to model theory were developed during his time at the University of Toronto.
 Robinson's most famous invention was nonstandard analysis which he introduced in 1961.
 In 1966 Robinson published his famous text Nonstandard analysis.
 We end this biography by giving some comments on Robinson's personality.
Born 6 October 1918, Waldenburg, Germany (now Wałbrzych, Poland). Died 11 April 1974, New Haven, Connecticut, USA.
