## Edmund Landau mathematician

**Edmund Landau (1877-1938)**

Edmund Landau, the son of a Berlin gyanaecologist attended high school and university in Berlin. He received his doctorate in 1899, under the direction of Frobenius. Landau first taught at the University of Berlin and then moved to Gottingen, where he was a full professor until the Nazis forced him to stop teaching. Landau’s main contributions to mathematics were in the field of analytic number theory. In particular, he established several important results concerning the distribution of primes. He authored a three volume exposition on number theory as well as other books on number theory and (mathematical) analysis.

In particular, I like his classic, Foundations of Analysis, AMS Chelsea Publishing:
