Distinguished graduates in mathematics of Jagiellonian University in the interwar period. Part I: 1918‒1925
Languages of publication
In this study, we present profiles of some distinguished graduates in mathematics of the Jagiellonian University from the years 1918‒1925. We discuss their professional paths and scholarly achievements, instances of scientific collaboration, connections with other academic centers in Poland and worldwide, involvement in mathematical education and teacher training, as well as their later roles in Polish scientific and academic life. We also try to understand in what way they were shaped by their studies and how much of Kraków scientific traditions they continued. We find strong support for the claim that there was a distinct, diverse and deep mathematical stream in Kraków between the wars, rooted in classical disciplines such as differential equations and geometry, but also open to new trends in mathematics.
