Transcript of Carl G. J. Jacobi

By: Alana James Carl G. J. Jacobi Jacobi proved that by classifying periodic functions the basic result is as follows: contribution to mathematics Carl G. J. Jacobi Carl G. J. Jacobi About: An elliptical function is a function that is defined on a complex plain and that is periodic in two directions. The theta function was among the most important or well received of these functions. *Jacobi suffered a breakdown from overwork in 1843.

*He then visited Italy for a few months to regain his health.

*his return he moved to Berlin, where he lived as a royal pensioner until his death.

*During the Revolution of 1848 Jacobi was politically involved and unsuccessfully presented his parliamentary candidature on behalf of a Liberal club In 1836, he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. If a univariate single-value function is periodic, then the ratio of the periods cannot be a real number, and that such a function cannot have more than two periods. (1804-1851) Jacobi was a Jewish mathematician from Potsdam. He studied at Berlin University and became a doctor of philosophy. He became a professor of mathematics the University of Königsberg. Jacobi's greatest contribution In matrix calculus, Jacobi's formula expresses the differential of the determinant of a matrix A in terms of the adjusted of A and the differential of A. The formula is: ddet(A)= tr(adj(A)dA)

In addition to these achievements, Jacobi did much more for mathematics. His contributions remain a significant part of math classes today all over the world.
