Dickson, Leonard (Eugene)


Mathematician, born in Independence, Iowa, USA. He studied at the University of Texas, and taught at Chicago for most of his life. He did important work in group theory, finite fields, and linear associative algebras, and his encyclopedic History of the Theory of Numbers (1919--23) is the definitive work on the subject.
