Lucjan Emil Böttcher (1872‒1937) ‒ the Polish pioneer of holomorphic dynamics
Languages of publication
In this article I present Lucjan Emil Böttcher (1872‒1937), a little-known Polish mathematician active in Lwów. I outline his scholarly path and describe briefly his mathematical achievements. In view of later developments in holomorphic dynamics, I argue that, despite some flaws in his work, Böttcher should be regarded not only as a contributor to the area but in fact as one of its founders.
