# nLab Ernst Steinitz

Ernst Steinitz (1871-1928) was a mathematician. Nowadays, he is remembered primarily through two, unrelated, theorems:

• Steinitz’s theorem on realizability of 3-connected? planar graphs by 1-skeleta of 3-dimensional polyhedra,

• Steinitz’s exchange lemma for sets of vectors.
