nLab Hermann Schwarz

Hermann Schwarz was a German mathematician.

He got his PhD degree in 1864 at the University of Berline, advised by Kummer and Weierstrass.

His PhD students include Lipót Fejér and Ernst Zermelo.

His name is often attached to the Cauchy inequality, for which he published a proof in an 1888 paper, although proofs were previously published by Cauchy in 1821 and Bouniakowsky in 1859.
