Levi-Civita, Tullio

[layvee chiveeta]


Mathematician, born in Padua, Italy. He studied in Padua and became professor there in 1897. From about 1900 he worked on the absolute differential calculus (or tensor calculus) which became the essential mathematical tool in Einstein's general relativity theory.
