The Influence of Menger’s Ideas on the Work of Nöbauer and His School
- 68 Downloads
Shortly after the Second World War Wilfried Nöbauer was studying mathematics at the University od Vienna. He asked Edmund Hlawka, the eminent number theorist at the university, to be the supervisor of his doctoral dissertation. Hlawka proposed taking a paper of Eckmann on the uniform distribution of values of the exponential function as a starting point for the research. Nöbauer did, but deviated from the originally intended analytic line of research and pursued instead an algebraic idea in Eckmann’s paper. This resulted in a systematic study of permutation polynomials (see below).
