Max Deuring

Max Deuring (9 December 1907 – 20 December 1984) was a German mathematician, who was elected a fellow of the Leopoldina.


  • Since an algebraic function w(z) is defined implicitly by an equation of the form f(z,w) = 0, where f is a polynomial, it is understandable that the study of such functions should be possible by algebraic methods. Such methods also have the advantage that the theory can be developed in the most general setting, viz. over an arbitrary field, annd not only over the field of complex numbers (the classical case).
