Gerd Fischer (born June 3, 1939 in Nuremberg ) is a German mathematician .

academic career

From 1958 Fischer studied mathematics and physics at the Universities of Erlangen and Munich , the Technical University of Munich (TU since 1970) and the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore in the United States . Fischer was in 1964 Reinhold Remmert at the University of Erlangen with the thesis complex manifolds regular and quasi-regular holomorphic maps doctorate . In 1969 he qualified as a professor at the LMU Munich with the script Hilbert spaces holomorphic functions .

From 1970 to 1975 he was visiting professor at the University of California in San Diego , Davis and Berkeley in the USA, the Universidad Nacional de Buenos Aires and La Plata in Argentina, the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis in the USA, and the Université de Strasbourg in France and at the University of Frankfurt . In 1971 he became a scientific councilor and professor at the University of Regensburg . He then became an adjunct professor at the University of Munich. Fischer worked at the French Institute des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHES) in Bures-sur-Yvette , at the Collaborative Research Center for Theoretical Mathematics at the University of Bonn , founded in 1969 and from which the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics emerged in 1980 , and at the French Université de Nice in Nice .

Since July 26, 1979, he held the chair for mathematics at Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf as a full professor and was elected dean of the faculty in 1998 .

Fischer has been honorary professor at the Center for Mathematics at the Technical University of Munich since 2006 .

Gerd Fischer deals with function theory (complex analysis) and algebraic geometry . He is also the author of several mathematics textbooks , whereby his textbook Linear Algebra has developed into a standard work at universities.

From 1980 to 1981 he was President of the German Mathematicians Association and from 1994 to 1997 Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Society for Mathematical Research Oberwolfach .
