Otto Forster
Otto Forster (born July 8, 1937 in Munich ) is a German mathematician .
Life
Forster studied at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich with a diploma in 1960 and he was in 1961 when Karl Stein in Munich with the work of continuous Banach functions on compact spaces doctorate . In 1965 he also completed his habilitation in Munich. After a stay at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton in 1966/67 and a substitute professor at the University of Göttingen (1967/68), he became a full professor at the University of Regensburg in 1968 . In 1968/69 he was visiting professor at the University of Geneva. In 1975 he moved to the Westphalian Wilhelms University in Münster . Since 1982 he has been a professor at the Mathematical Institute of the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich. Even after his retirement in the summer of 2005, he still regularly offers lectures for advanced students.
In 1984 Otto Forster became a member of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences . In 1970 he was invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Nice ( topological methods in the theory of Steinian spaces ).
Act
Forster's main area of work is complex analysis , he also deals with questions of algebraic geometry and analytical as well as algorithmic number theory . The latter is also the aim of his ARIBAS program - an interpreter with a Pascal-like syntax that offers powerful long number arithmetic and various library functions based on this. This program, available under the GNU General Public License , also serves as the basis for the algorithms discussed in Forster's book Algorithmic Number Theory .
He became known to a wider audience through his series of textbooks on analysis .
