Jacobi, Carl Gustav Jacob

[jakohbee]

(1804--51)

Mathematician, born in Potsdam, Germany. As professor of mathematics at Königsberg (1827--42), his book Fundamenta nova (1829) was the first definitive study of elliptic functions, which he and Niels Henrik Abel had independently discovered. He also made important advances in the study of differential equations, the theory of numbers, and determinants.
