Konrad Königsberger (born February 22, 1936 in Deggenau ; † October 4, 2005 in Landshut ) was a German mathematician . He researched and taught at the University of Würzburg and at the Technical University of Munich and wrote a two-volume introduction to analysis .


Königsberger studied mathematics and physics at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich from 1954 to 1960 and received his doctorate in 1960 under Karl Stein . He then worked as an assistant at the LMU Munich and with Hans Grauert in Göttingen . From 1965 to 1968 he worked as a scholarship holder of the German Research Foundation at Moscow University .

In 1969, Königsberger completed his habilitation at LMU, where he was also appointed Scientific Councilor in 1970. Three years later he was given a full professorship at the University of Würzburg. In 1975 he took over the chair of analysis at the Technical University of Munich as Klaus Samelson's successor , which he held until his retirement in 2002. During this time, Königsberger, who was Dean of the Institutes of Mathematics and Computer Science from 1988 to 1990, devoted himself primarily to improving the teaching of analysis in the first four semesters .

As part of these efforts, Königsberger's probably best-known work was created, a two-volume introduction to analysis, which he worked to improve until the end.
